Windows 98 Help AUTOIT MAJOR PROBLEM

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I had named a AutoIt file explorer(so after it was converted it was explorer.exe) and then I sent it to my friend and it crashed his computer.

Could this have something to do with the main file Explorer.exe being overwritten by my AutoIt file?

Works fine on my computer, Windows XP, but when he runs it on Windows 98 it jacked up his computer.

Any help is necessary.

doesn't sound very logical to call your autoit script Explorer.. thats asking for trouble......

Did you ask him to rename it to something else and try again ?

Yeah but it worked fine on mine so I didn't see any problem.

Oh well

If his copy of windows 98 is still messed up, you can use either a DOS shell to replace the AutoIt exe with the original file (from a friend, or prehaps online somewhere. Maybe from the install disc too??) I suppose you could also use a Linux live-CD if you don't have the original 98 install disc, or any way to boot into DOS. Slax does wonders at helping to replace bad windows exe files :D
