Re: Installation problems Windows XP


I really haven't tried installing anything under XP, but this procedure
worked for Win95/98/ME. Instead of having 'modenv.bat' (usually in
$SOMETHING\MOD6V2\BIN directory) called from the autoexec.bat (which I
think works on Win98), put all the lines from modenv.bat directly into
autoexec.bat - something like this:

set LIBS_LIB6v2=%MODINSTALL6v2%\modlib\libs.lib
set EXECUTABLE_TYPE6v2=i386-windf

Does XP even have autoexec.bat? If not, there must be some system file
where startup variables can be defined. After that, the only thing needed
in mod.bat file is something like this:

@echo off
%MODINSTALL6v2%\bin\modeller6v2 %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9 > %1.log

Needles to say, mod.bat should be in the directory that is included in
the PATH.



PS It may be that your archive was unpacked without preserving the
directory structure, which would explain the non-existing 'bin' directory.
