*Complete* W98 Program Copying
suresys Oct-11-01 02:14 PM
I would like to be able to copy a complete W98 program into directory. i.e. ALL system/registry files/directory paths to be included. Is there an easy way of doing this please?

Sorry - this is not clear when I read it again.
I want to copy a program that uses the W98 operating system i.e. not the W98 program.

Why do you want to do that? Larry

To get the *entire* program safely onto a CDROM. It is no longer available commercially and I use it a lot.

I don't know an easy way to do that. You might want to look into http://www.mcafee.com/support/instructions/muo_gettingstarted.asp. I have not tried it. Larry

I complete my win98 install with all my permanent programs & setups then copy the drive to a zip file on another HD //if system crashes I format drive and unzip file.

You might try putting your complete operating system & or c drive into a zip/exe file and burn to a CD


Thank you for listening - I tend to babble

Thanks Larry and Knave,

The McAfee web-based "uninstaller" recommended by Larry was very useful for extracting all of the constituent files from the application. Unfortunately, though, the "re-installer" is not keen to reinstall to a different system or to copy to a CDROM. I am trying to get more details out of McAfee support as the files are not stored in a useable format.
