Linked to my post OLE 2.0, I seem to be having numerous problems with my setup, especially installing programs.
The Internet explorer icon does not do anything, so I thought I would try to install IE 4.0 from a CD I had. When clikcing the install icon on the splash screen, the hourglass appears briefly, the CD starts to spin, then nothing happens.
I tried to install Who Wants to be a Millionaire (UK edition), and the machine started to run the Windows Installer program, then promptly froze and gave me a "Fatal Exception OE" message.
As well as Paint not working (see earlier post), Windows Imaging will not load, nor Wordpad, due to the OLE problem.
I have now reisntalled Win 95 from both HD and CD several times, chosen Custom installation to ensure that nothing is left out, all to no avail.
It may be worth mentioning as well that Printer sharing does not work, although drive sharing does, and Internet sharing won't work (partly due to the fact that IE won't install!)
It has been suggested by Larry and others that I should upgrade to 98 SE, but it now appears that my copy is tied to the manufacturer of my other machine and refuses to install - Therefore I am stuck with W95!
Anybody able to advise?
