The installer states that I have no free disk space available.
There may be a few reasons for this.
1. Make sure you have enough disk space on the drive you are installing on AND the drive that contains your Windows folder (they may be different drives). Our installer places a temporary ODBC installer in your system's temporary folder. It installs ODBC to your Windows folder, and then removes the ODBC installer. Therefore, you need enough space for the ODBC installer and the installed ODBC files on the drive that contains your Windows folder. This may be different than the drive you are installing the ChemOffice applications to.
2. Make sure your Windows Temp folder is defined and points to an existing folder. Win95 users can check to see where the system's temp directory is defined by going to an MS-DOS Prompt and viewing the AUTOEXEC.BAT file located at the top level of the C drive. The temp path will look like:
SET TEMP=(your path)
If you do not have this line, then you need to add one. Something like:
Windows NT 4.0 users have to set the temp paths in the System Properties.
To access the System Properties:
1. Open the System control panel by going to Settings in the Start Menu and choosing Control Panel
2. Double click on the System icon
3. Click on the Environment tab
Under the User Variables there should be a path for the Temp variable.
Make sure that your system has these paths set up and that they are pointing to a directory called Temp on your hard drive.
You should always make a backup of the AUTOEXEC.BAT before making any changes to it.
If that doesn't help, copy the entire ChemOffice installer folder from the top level of the cd-rom to your hard drive. Restart your computer in "Safe Mode" for Windows 95 users or "Windows NT (VGA Mode)" for WinNT users and run the installer (that is now on your hard drive) again to see if some extension was causing the problem. To boot into Safe Mode, at the "Starting Windows 95" screen press the F8 key. A menu will appear. Try Safe Mode option 3 or 4.
