    Bob,
    Access the CD from Explorer. Click on "Index.htm" in the root folder of the CD. There will then be a menu display. Click on "ebook" and follow directions to copy CD.

    ( BTW, Inside Out is a great book with lots of good information. I use it a lot. )

    <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29> I've done that, as well as accessing from the screen that appears when autorun loads when you load the CD. I go through the procedure, but it doesn't copy the files to the fixed disk. It runs fine from the CD.

    The autorun.exe on the desktop doesn't seem to do anything. The following paragraph appears at the instructions screen for loading the e-book.

    Note: Depending on your security settings in Internet Explorer, the File Download dialog box might appear when you click one of the links above. If it does appear, click Open to start the installation. Other security dialog boxes might also appear.

    I can get around the problem by copying the necessary files to a new folder on my fixed disk, and then creating a shortcut, which I can place on my desktop. It does seem strange that it doesn't work from the CD. I've loaded their Office 2003 e-book with no problems. <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15>

    Bob,
    I had taken the copy of the book off my HD when I added a new drive a while back. I just reinstalled it to see what happened and it went over fine. Don't have to use the CD in the reader, so all info is over on my HD to get at a particular chapter.

    Don't know if this will help but I copied this from the text file included with IO. While it says "network", I think it still applies to all. I did check in the bonline.ini file and it is set at "local" for me.
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    HOW TO MAKE THIS PRODUCT AVAILABLE FOR NETWORK INSTALL
    ================================================== ====
    1. Copy the contents of the ebook directory and all subdirectories
    to a network share.
    2. Make the share available to users.
    3. Instruct users to run the setup.exe file.

    The setup for this electronic book can be configured by
    the network administrator either to run from the install
    point (network install) or to download all necessary files
    to the user machine (local install). By default the installation
    is configured to run from the installation point.

    How to modify the type of installation
    --------------------------------------
    1. Open the file "bonline.ini" in a text editor.
    2. Edit the InstallType parameter to read either:

    InstallType=Local
    or
    InstallType=Network

    3. Save and close the file. Note: If you receive an error when saving the
    file, verify in the file properties that the read-only file attribute is
    not checked.

    Hope this helps.
