I made an attempt at installing tweakui 95 from the MS website.  I get a warning that it cannot find the pathway to tweakui.CNT file.  How can this be when I actually see that the file exist.  HOW DO I INSTALL IT??  PLEASE DESCRIBE CLEARLY IN DETAIL.  THANKS!!  soundman

Extract the downloaded file to a temp folder first, then under Control Panel>Add/Remove programs>windows setup click on have disk and browse to the temp folder created.  High light TweakUI and install.

Larbel, thanks for your answer.  I put tweakui in it's OWN folder...would that have been the problem or as to why it could not find the CNT file?  soundman

Soundman, do you get this error when you try to open TweakUI from the Control Panel or during installation?  The *.cnt files are needed for using Help only, are you installing from within Add/Remove?   Please describe in details when does this error occur.

Larbel,
I get an error when I try to install from the folder I created called "TweakUI".  I placed this folder in my Downloads folder and when I begin to install it, it goes into a DOS prompt and then instructs to hit enter and then it shows all the files in my created folder. Then, I right click the INF file and engage install.  THAT is when I get an error saying it cannot locate the CNT file.  Does this help explain...I hope.  soundman

No no no...  You dont install using the Inf, you *must* use Control Panel>Add/Remove program>Windows setup the click on have disk to browse to your downloaded folder, the TweakUI will show up as a checkbox, check the box and click install.

Hello soundman. Uncompress tweakui in the folder you created. Bring up that list of files.
Right click on tweakui.inf and click on install. and yes it will say that it cant find that file.
then you browse to that same folder and in the path bar where the c:\tweakui is, back space to the beginning and then type in the path again and it will find it. Weird but it does work. end the path with a \ like    c:\tweakui\
