browse the Compaq CD in My Computer by clicking the cdrom drive letter with the cd in the drive or does it just autorun with no 'browse' option like some cd's allow?
If you put the cd into the drive and you stop the autorun feature, can you then go into Windows Explorer and click the plus mark in front of the cdrom drive so that other folders show up that you might be able to then browse this way instead?
If you find you are able to browse the cd and look inside some of the folders, see if there is a specific one for MSWorks/Money (usually the two programs are installed together on vendor cd's). If you can locate that folder, there should be a setup.exe file within it that will let you install MSWorks/Money, and if so, you might be able to then have the option of a 'custom install' that lists both programs so you can uncheck MS Money and only install MS Works. All of its installation files will be inside that folder and setup will tell the program where to look for what it needs then.
Once you can get it fully installed on the XP system, you can then copy the database from your W98 system to floppy disk (if it will fit all on one) or burn it to a cd or put it on a removable keychain type harddrive if you have one, and then copy it to the XP system in the same folder location there as it came from on the W98 system by letting it overwrite the new blank database that the installation will create.
Hi, I have a compaq presario7470 with win98. I want to use the database program in the msworks in a xp computer. I tried the msworks installation program but it keeps asking for program parts. I have the compaq recovery discs. Is it possible to use the untitled zips on the discs to install the msworks on the xp or is there an easier way? Thanks for any help.
