Fail to update W95 from newer CD-ROM
Posted on 1998-01-22
As I would like to make available some special characters from my own language (Dutch) as well as from Spanish, I want to add these laguages under Keyboard in Configuration.
This works fine with my newer PC (summer 1997) with the CD-ROM that was supplied with it, but when I try to do the same with my somewhat older PC (March 1996), it says something like (in Dutch): "The file Spanish(classic) cannot be copied. Chck if the diskette is in the drive, if the file is on the diskette and if the drive is" (that's where it seemingly breaks of the sentence). The CD-ROM has autostarted, but...
Then I tried the newer CD W95. That makes the PC tell me that it is a newer version and ask me if I want to update. Sure, so it starts Setup. However that program brings as first message (Dutch) "there are changes made in the Configuration Screen or in the device settings since the last time you started Windows, close all programs, restart Windows and run Setup again". Well, even a complete switch of and cold boot does not make a difference. So also no language additions to the Keyboard from this CD!
