What with the holidays and making money, I never got around to thanking Peter Evans, Nancy F, Laurie Gorton, Bill Troop and Robert Woods for responding to my query about my disappearing dict.spl, which, in defiance of page 3-74 in the manual, refused to load on two recent huge jobs.
Probably terrified of this list, the beast came back almost the moment I complained.
But, with two huge back-to-back jobs on the horizon, I will keep Troop's and Nancy F's advice taped
to the wall just in case.
Now, a further query on the path issue for Peter Evans, who says my autoexec.bat should read:
What my autoexec.bat actually says is:
rem *** DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE! ***
rem This file was created by the System Configuration Utility as
rem a placeholder for your AUTOEXEC.BAT file. Your actual
rem AUTOEXEC.BAT file has been saved under the name AUTOEXEC.TSH.
NOTE: The Norton notation is new as of last night, when I downloaded AntiVirus 2000.
What autoexec.tsh says is:
REM [CD-ROM Drive]
NOTE: WINDOWS.000 showed up during the summer, when I did an uninstall/reinstall. WINDOWS.000
contains one folder, AOLshare, which is empty. I no longer use AOL.
My query to Peter: could the two references to WINDOWS.000 be causing dict.spl not to load (which
never happened before the uninstall/reinstall)? Can I delete the two references to WINDOWS.000, or
is this a question for Microsoft?
