I just installed xp and now need to reinstall works but i cant get works to
pop up for re-installation. The cd is in the cd-rom but it won't come up. it
is version 4.5 and will work with w95 or windows NT Workstation 4.0.

Any suggestions
Thanks

Also. This discussion board runs awful innefiniantly on my somputer.
Everything else runs fine but this board is hard to use. Does anyone else
think this way?

You can try installing your old version of Works using Windows XP's
Program Compatibility Wizard:

If not successful:

Consider purchasing Works Suite 2005 which is fully compatible
with Windows XP.

Microsoft Works Suite 2005 (also includes Microsoft Word 2002)

($99.95 - $20.00 rebate = $79.95) (excellent value)

Also, you need to install Java for a better web-based newsgroup loading:

From My Computer, select the CD drive with a right click,
select browse. Find the setup.exe file and double click it.

Your new XP installation is not set to autorun CDs, you can
set that by again right clicking the CD drive and select
properties.

Works 4.x, 6, and 98 already have compat fixes installed. For Works 4.x it only requires Windows to lie about the free disk space (will only report a max of 2 GB of free space). Works 4.5 is compatable with XP cos MS made it so. You are very free with other's money.

Did you run setup. We don't read minds.
