Bugs[edit | edit source]

Installation[edit | edit source]

It is recommended to copy the installation files to the hard drive for installation. The installation program does not recognize some files in PRECOPY1.CAB during installation, and the installation package lacks two tracking programs, and the installation prompts that the file cannot be found.

Missing files:

  • hcount.exe
  • selfhost.exe

Files not recognized by PRECOPY1.CAB:

  • layout.inf
  • layout1.inf
  • layout2.inf
  • lic_help.txt
  • license.chm
  • migdb.add

The missing tracking program can be found in a patched version at present. It is not included in the installation package because it cannot be confirmed whether it belongs to the original file content of this version. The tracking program file and the files that are not recognized by PRECOPY1 can be downloaded here.

Combine the above files, put them in the directory containing installation files, and start the installation.
