How do I share the same Flash4 application on my dual boot PC running Win95 and Win NT 4.0 ?
I have installed Flash on the D: drive which is NT 4.0 and would like to access it when I'm in Win95.

Hardly !!!

Firsty you won't be able to do this if you d: drive is NTFS...  it needs to be FAT formatted.

Now you all you have to do is install flash in 95 to the same directory as the existing installation, at a guess i'd say that was D:\Program Files\Macromedia\Flash 4.

This will install all the required system files into the Win95 system and should allow you to access the program from both operating systems.

Let me know how you get on.
