Setting up Pcitco91 (dual cpu) with WXP: Pre-install: Check that the network cable is in A, else it won’t find the network. Check that the machine is already registered at http// Recreate the account pcitco91 on the cern webservices page. DO do this manual step. It ensures that the automatic step later on will not fail!

Install: Run the installation floppy from Using fdisk: I deleted all partitions on C. Recreated one large primary DOS partition. FAT32 = large disk partitions. NTFS = large ? “Yes” You HAVE TO reboot. Then format C: Volume name pcitco91 Then install. Allow it to convert to ntfs It (again) recreates the computer account. Then it copies files to the hard disk. Then it logs in as administrator!

I set the admin pw. I set the display to 1280x1024 I installed vnc 335 (though this may not be necessary now with remote access…)

14 Nov 2002 Java VM auto installed itself

27 Nov 2002 Trying to install a printer. (Couldn’t find it at first…) It’s in the system tray, right click, printer wizard.

17 Mar 2003 Installed Exceed 8.0

4 April 2003 Started to install 3.0Alpha Chose: Install into c:\etm\pvss2\pvss3.0Alpha Select custom install; Carefully select all options EXCEPT Ado 2.6 Online help german Online help html AddON>Speech 3rdParty>Speech

Select Demo App dir c:/BackedUPFiles/PussyApps/DemoApp Select Aqua App dir c:/BackedUPFiles/PussyApps/AquaApp

Program Folder: PVSS II 3.0Alpha

First time I installed it said: It said: A read only file c:\etm\pvss2\3.0Alpha\bin\mscvirt.dll was found (read only). To overwrite click yes. (I did and got General failure when copying the file c:\etm\pvss2\3.0Alpha\bin\mscvirt. Check the installation directory and re-install. Err -4 Aborting PVSS II setup!

PVSS00oledb.exe has failed to start because wkwin32.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem. NB pc91 has c:\winnt\system32 whereas Minion has c:\windows\system32

I repeated the installation as described above ( ie without Ado and putting the 2 apps in separate dirs this time (!!) ) and it went through OK. I deleted a 2nd copy of demo app from PussyApps though. An old (2.11.1 !) readme came with this installation. The PVSS Console 3.0 starts.

Actually I had to reinstall it again later…
