Install problems do to low space on system drive

We run NT4.0 with a C: and D: partition. C: contains windows/system
files and D: contains data. Will be running CAD from the Network.
Having problems run client setup on PC's that have less than 150 megs
free on the C: drive. I know that the requirements are 98megs of swap
space and 60megs of system drive free. Wondering if there is a way to
have it use the D: drive for swap space? Also, install is not
recognizing my Netscape 4.7 or IE3.0 it wants to load IE in order for
Internet Tools to be installed. Any ideas on this problem?

thanks,
rp

You can put the swap file on a different partition (or drive) on NT by going
into the "System Properties" dialog box (right-click) on "My Computer" then
click on the "Performance" tab. Now in the virtual memory section click on
the Change button. Setup the paging file any way that you like.

As for the IE/Netscape stuff I'm not to sure about that. I think that
AutoCAD needs atlease IE 4.0 to use the Internet stuff that comes with
AutoCAD. When I setup my network deployment I didn't go for the internet
stuff since I didn't have enough room on the server (that will change). I
also have IE 4.0 (or newer) on the client PCs, so I don't know if it tried
to install IE and see that it was already there or not.

Hope this helps. :smileyhappy:

Like Keven told you, you can move your swap file and your TEMP directory.

For the Internet Tools, you need I.E 4.0 or higher. This is in the
install guide. Netscape and I.E 3x will not work here.

Hope this helps.

This is crazy,

How can a small (relatively) software company make us change from one
internet browser to another?

I cannnot really realistically comment on this as I have both intstalled, but
I would like to think that specifying Explorer or Netscape or some other
would infringe on someones rights...And I don't think this would be MS.....

Netscape Will Win (especially with the Finnish real Operating Systen
--LINUX--)

Hi Petri,

Autodesk is the 4th largest software company in the World. But that is not the
point here. What is going on is the Microsoft Browser has better hooks for what
the Internet tools needed in AutoCAD 2000. You don't have to give up your
Netscape or even switch browser. You just need the i.e 4.0 or greater to use
these tools.

I will add that I was a Netscape user for EVER. I am up to 4.7 and so frustrated
with it that I am about ready to pull it off my systems. I.E 5 is a much better
browser these days. It is sad, but very true. Ever since AOL purchased them it
has been down hill;-(

Take care.
