I have a Pentium II 233 with 64 Meg of RAM, and using Windows 95. A program that I bought called TweakDUN 2.22 for getting the most from my modem strongly suggest that I make a backup of my registry first before using it. It suggests using Win95 utility ERU to do so.  I tried using ERU and I get this message "Could not locate file ERD.E_El". I don't want to go any further until I have the registry backed up as advised. What should I do now?
Thanks dimpledr

You should have a folder on your hard drive desginated just for ERU such as C:\ERU

In this folder there should be four files:

ERU.E_E
ERU.EXE
ERU.INF
ERU.TXT

When you created your icon for this file, the target should be ERU.EXE

If you need more, let me know.

The files listed by Dennis are in a folder named ERU on my Win95 CD. (under \Other\Misc\ERU)

Since running the program and choosing to save the files on my hard drive, I now have a folder on my hard drive named C:\Erd.
It contains the backups of all my system files. (a total of 12 files including ERD.EXE)

I hope this helps if there was any confusion.
Regards,
Ralph

Dennis,
You answered my question and I found all the files that you mentioned above, and have copied them to both a floppy and to C:\ERU that I created on my hard drive.  You mentioned I should creat a icon for this file," the target should be ERU.EXE"  Are you saying that I should just have the four files in one place such as C:\ERU, or should they somehow all be combined?

Thanks
Jerry

Hi Jerry!

Those files aren't combined, they are just in the same directory as you have indicated.
