|Can this program be used
alongside the old version of Cobuild on CD-ROM?
Yes, you can use this program alongside the older
version of Cobuild on CD-ROM but, if you had previously installed the entire
older version, using our instructions given on the COBUILD on CD-ROM page of
this site, then you cannot install the newer version entirely and use them both
simlutaneously. You will need to uninstall the older version (deleting all the
files copied from the CD-ROM), deleting a file in your Windows Directory called
COBUILD.ini. You can then reinstall it and use the program from the CD-ROM.
|Why should you get an error
message when trying to install the program?
If you are running an older version of Windows 95
then you will get an error message when attempting to install the first version
of this program. It will carry these details in part of it: The SETUP.EXE file
is linked to missing export KERNEL32.DLL:GetDiskFreeSpaceExA. Should this occur
then we can only advise you to update your Windows installation.
You may also get an error message that reads:
Error: Missing setup program. Should this occur then you will need to cancel
the setup and open your My Computer icon on your Desktop. Then (with the
Cobuild CD-ROM in your CD-ROM drive) RIGHT MOUSE click over the CD-ROM icon and
select 'Explore' (NOT Open). This will open the contents of your Cobuild
CD-ROM without allowing the autorun to start. Then double-click on the
Setup.exe file. Should you continue to have problems then please

included. You can, of course, copy and paste to your document from the
Dictionary. Should you wish to discuss this please contact
