Let me know if I can help you, with the whole ME/98 thing. I don't mind rebooting a few times...

I was using beta 1.4.3, which worked fine (W98), but the new 1.4.2 (which shows up as 1.4.1 in ZoneAlarm) doesn't want to save the window size/position after a shutdown the way 1.4.3 and earlier did. That's the only difference I've seen so far.

Plus I liked the old icons better ;)

the size position code does act strange when you open up different versions ... i havent looked into why yet. however, i can assure you that the behavior mentioned happens in all of them, since i have not touched that code.

1.4.2 works fine here under 98SE as well. Installed the upgrade over 1.3.8, worked fine after reboot also.

Glad to see the dynmenus working too without locking up the system. :)

My 98se install worked fine.

Will put it on 2000 and NT 4.0 tomorrow when I go to my various locations, will report any problems.

Went from 1.3.8 btw...

Ran the upgrade...too.

I installed both 1.4.2 and the upgrade and got this message:



.....I don't know what any of that means, but I hope it helps someone else figure out what's up....

yeah, i got that message too.

did you notice when installing it, if it wrote a MSVCRT.DLL to your hardrive, or did it say

"skipping > msvcrt.dll"

i think the version of that on our machines isn`t quite the same version as the one the new client uses, but it doesn`t get updated. of course, i`m barking up the wrong tree, but it makes you wonder.

i wish i could understand Windows sometimes, i really do...

yeah, the error is actually that the mfc runtimes are not being updated. the problem is, the installer that is being used isnt smart enough to update the dlls to the latest version (or even do version checking)

i posted something in my journal that may fix it.
