? Looking For File At Startup?

Recommended Posts

I have a machine win98 P2 128 ram 10GB hdd.

Took all forever to clean temp/cookies/whatnots. and run scandisk defrag. machine is quick for is's specs.

at start up after win 98 splash screen, I get a line ~ C:\set class path C:\program Files\Photo Deluxe 2\AdobeConnectables ~ (~ is not in the line) what is windows looking for. so far I have no problems just curious.

Hello Mikex,

My gateway (Win98 and exact specs as yours, too) does the exact same thing and has since day one. Try looking in Start/Programs. I have Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Photo Deluxe there. I know how Acrobot Reader works but have never tried Photo Deluxe. Liz

Re-read the question, I'm sure you know what it is! I'm a doof. No, not sure what it is looking for....But my Gateway does do the exact same thing. Liz

I believe that the computer is not looking for anything.

What the "path" statement does is inform the computer

and programs -- In this case, Adobe Photo Deluxe -- where

to look for it's data and other files.

This kind of smacks back to the old DOS days when

most program installations would append the path statement.

well if it was WIN 3.1 I would just delete that line from the win.in file and that should fix it.
