Tweakui133 will not install
Posted on 2004-04-11
This is a new question, however it has roots in my previous query dated 4/8/04, Title 'Un-Removable Desk-top icon' Question ID(?); Operating_Systems/Win 98/Q_20947909.html#1079572
Solved by BillDL. After downloading tweakui133 and Winzip I was successful in getting rid of the un-wanted icon following the procedure layed out by BillDL.
Some time later I attempted to wander around in Tweak to learn more about its capabilties. A box popped up informing me that the file was 'corrupted', etc. and suggested I download it again. I uninstalled Tweak and went for a fresh download,when that was complete I attempted to unzip by means of Winzip... I was now informed that the file was 'truncated' etc
Another download and this time I let Tweak self-extract which appeared to work until I got to the point of installing the tweak icon in the Control Panel. Rt/click tweakui.inf> install. This brought up a box: "Insert Disk, The disk labeled 'Tweakui' is now required. etc. Click OK to continue." Having no disk I clicked 'Details"...."Path not found (error number 3)" It seemed to be looking for tweakui.cnt which was right there.
Another uninstall, download, attempt to unzip, as a matter of fact I have done this routine seven or eight times, some ending quickly with Winzip messages 'This file is truncated, download again', or 'This file is damaged or has been changed etc.
I have tried with Winzip and without Winzip the only difference being different error messages at different points during the process. The uninstall procedure layed out in Tweak Help didn't work. After the uninstall is performed the tweak.exe icon is still on the desk-top. and the four tweak files (.cnt, .cpl, .hlp, .inf) are still wherever I had placed them (desktop or C:\Windows\Temp)
Re-boot ...still there. It was then; Find> Files and Folders> Named > Tweak and delete them from there. On several occassions when I had placed them at; C:\Windows\Temp they end up in C;\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\Wlchapyp or K5mjizy9.
What kind of jack-pot have I gotten into now?
