Hi i've gone to the Above site and downloaded something?
When i clicked on the exe file afterwards it came up with finished ?????
I then tried the essvol.exe and it said i cannot find audio drive i don't really know what i'm doing here no surprise there.
If it is gonna be easier to not run it off CD why don't we try that cause this seems complicated.
The file you downloaded was an archive; double-clicking it just extracted the files from that archive, which is why it just said "finished." So, here's what you do:
Start up a DOS prompt and type the following:
You should now have a new directory (folder) on your hard drive labelled C:\ESS. Move the .exe file you downloaded to this directory and double-click on it. Tell us which files appear there.
Did you unzip it to its own directory? If so, then it's time to continue to the next step.
Go to Start->Programs and look for the entry labelled "MS-DOS Prompt." Right-drag (right-click-and-hold) it onto the desktop and select Copy. You should now have a new shortcut on the desktop labelled "MS-DOS Prompt."
Right-click on the shortcut and select Properties. Then, hit the Program tab, and click on the Advanced button. Select the following:
Specify a new MS-DOS configuration
The two text fields should be active now. Tell us what's in them.
Lt Col Cannon: The deciding factor is free space on your HD. Go to "My Computer" then right-click on one of your HDs (usually C: is fine) and then select "Properties". Then you can see how much free space there is. You actually don't need to go into properties if you have the Explorer's "view as HTML" option turned on.
Look on the CD for a folder named WC1 and copy it to your hard drive.
Did you unzip the sound drivers to C:\ESS yet? If not, do so now.
Now, it's time to edit the shortcut that we put on your desktop a while back. Right-click on it and select Properties. Then, hit the Program tab, followed by the Advanced button. Delete everything that is currently in the two fields and replace it with the following:
