shortcuts and programs won't run
Posted on 1998-04-09
A friend with a p133, win95, 16 meg ram, running Communicator 4 downloaded Quicktime's 16 bit movie player. During installation he got a message saying "severe - internal compression library file error. Unable to enumerate files in compressed library." He bailed out -- actually turned the computer off! Now when he tries to run programs, either from shortcuts or the start menu, the install shield pops up, telling him "this will install quicktime and QT browser plug-in (16 bit). If he continues, he gets the compression error -- if he doesn't, he goes back to the desktop. He's able to run my computer and control panel, but isn't able to delete quicktime, even after shutting down everything but explorer, systray and rnaapp (real audio?) using crtl-alt-del. I don't know what else to suggest.
