Read your posting on TEMP files. PAF4 runs fine. I have located a PAFTEMP file but no C: emp.
I did as you suggested StaRT>SETTINGS>CONTROLPANEL Click on settings.
was unable to click on ENVIRONMENT as there was no place for me to do that.
I can't find anywhere to change the Windows OS Environment variable.
Just in case I did change the DOS Autoexec bat file to include"SET TEMP=C: emp". But that has no effect at all. So how the heck does one change the environment variables in WINDOWS98?
I also followed your advice in seeing all files were closed in PAF4.
The way the program is working is that the screen that is locking everything up shows up at first behind the welcome screen and then pops in front of it. Then the machine locks.
After many trials, all at once on entering PAF there was no welcome screen at all, only one that indicated files were being convertedthen LOCK-UP SOLID again. This happened again and again after about three reboots, then PRESTO back to the original problem. That is what it is still doing.
I would like to try that TEMP environment variable solution if I only knew how.
