Hi

Are you trying to FTP via Internet Explorer or with a 3rd party program?
Where are you trying to FTP to?

Alright, I went to the photo newsgroup and there was a site that you could
go to and see if you have duplicate photo's. The site was
ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/services/technet/samples/ps/win... .
I clicked on that and nothing happened.
Is that what you wanted to know??? Please help. I did not think that was
a photo newsgroup issue. Thanks for your time.

Hi

You're right - the link doesn't work. I tried a Copy & Paste into Internet
Explorer, but then got an error message to say I hadn't got permission to
access that site. I could however access it by using a 3rd party FTP
program. I don't know why access was denied via IE, but you may like to
install an FTP program - there is a free one here:

Hi Dennis

I've just managed to get through by clicking on the link using IE. I don't
why it wouldn't work earlier.

I just thought it would be 1 or 2 files in there. Wow!!!
I don't know what to do with all those files or even which one to look for.
I got there with the free download that Will Denny suggested and also went
in by copying and pasting into IE .
I clicked on Windiff.exe and a pop up screen tell me IE cannot download
WINDIFF.exe from ftp.microsoft.com. The connection with the server was
reset.

Help me please.

Tried again and a pop up screen comes up that says it was unable to load
because it was missing GUtils.dll.

You have to download gutils as well. Maybe you also want the help file windiff.hlp. These files are also on the the Windows 98 CDRom at CD\tools\reskit\file.

CD\tools\reskit\file.
