    NAV 2000 and Win 95

    I did something weird today.

    I have a Win 95 system that has been powered down for over 4 months, except for very brief moments to test VB 6 programs and one WordBasic thingee.

    Well, as the system has nece rhad NAV, I looked thru my pile of NAV boxes and found that NAV 2000 should install onm a Win 96 system.

    Sure 'nuf, the installation worked.
    However, when I rebooted, during startup, I got a message that the E:Program FilesNorton AnyiViruesnavap.vxd file could not be found.
    Actually, the path used the short filenames.

    I hit a key and the installation continued.

    I was able to run NAV when Win 95 finished booting, so I set the options.

    I then re-installed, but same problem.

    Note the file is indeed present

    I then dialed onto the internet and ran LiveUpdate.
    Live Update ran with no apprent errors.
    When I tried to resrt AutoProtec tand when I rebooted, I got a message that the virus definition data base could not be initialized.

    So, I uninstalled NAV.

    Anybody recall these problems, and solutions?

    I'll search at the symantec web site.

    I believe that the following supports my suspicions.

    I am guessing that the driver is being referenced before the SCSI drives are known to the system.
    If so, then I can likely get around the problem by making a copy of the relevand .vxd file on the C or D drives and changing the relevant registry/system.ini entries.

    Wouldn't the virus definitions subscriptions have expired by now?

    The VDs that were installed with the product would still be valid.

    LiveUpdate did download an update, did not complain about any subscriptions.

    Sure, but probably WAY out of date, The update might have been for other file updates, but I guess my question is are the Definitions showing a current date?

    Howard,
    Why don't you get a spell checker such as IEspell at http://www.iespell.com/, it sure would make your post a lot easier to read.
    Of course Al Gore could not spell either.

    And when did MS release Windows 96?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Al Gore went to CERN? Funny, that's just down the road from here, and I didn't see him!

    Re: NAV 2000 and Win 95

    The VDs installed with the product were as of 12 July 1999.
    LiveUpdate installed a program update and a VD update.
    Don't know the date of the VD update.
    I uninstalled NAV yesterday, so I cannot check.

    Today, I re-installed NAV.

    1. The error with NAVAP.vxd seems to have two solutions:

    a. Allow the error to occur, AutoProtect stil lgets enabled upon reboot.
    b. Disable autoprotect on reboot, then error does not occur, and manually enable AutoProtect.

    2. After installing NAV today, I ran LiveUpdate, but it seemed to hang, so I eventually killed it.
    Since then LU claims it cannot find an internet connection.
    This problem will likely go away if I uninstall, then rei-install, NAV, LU, etc.
    But it ain't worth the effort. Other than messing with NAV the past 2 daze, I've used that computer for no more than 1-2 hours over the past 5+ months.
