Description Thirumal Venkat 2005-10-18 14:04:42 UTC
Hi I am Thirumal,
Well to be honest I am a rookie and I am still 15 years old. Well I'm pretty 
good in Php, Html, and Javascript, but I installed your MSI Win 32 on my Windows 
98 Second Edition, The first time it worked properly, but the second time I 
click on it(Even after Formatting my Disk and Installing New OS) the message 
"Error 2075. Could'nt Resolve ServerName " appears on a new MessageBox and Then 
I don't have any choice to click on "Finish" and exit the setup; download a new 
copy and install it. Make your software a bit easier to be accessible. I hope 
this problem occours if you change the "Name of the Setup Program" or "Folder 
where we Keep the Setup Program". Please help innocents like me to have a 
Yours Sincerely
Thirumal Venkat

You have TCP/IP installed on the box?  Were you disconnected from the network
at that time (e.g. using Dialup Networking, without dialing in first)?

If we fail to resolve servername, we could use your IP address as the server
name, I'll look at making that adjustment.  In the interim, please add this
line to to your \WINDOWS\System32\drivers\etc\hosts file (if it doesn't exist
you can copy the hosts.sam sample file to be named 'hosts'):   www.example.com

where is your IP address, and www.example.com is whatever you
want to call this machine.  ONLY MACHINES WHERE YOU MODIFY 'hosts' WILL KNOW
THIS NAME - it's not a substitute for registering the name with a DNS provider.

But, it's a slick trick for testing.  Please report back if this works.

  No response, assuming issue is resolved.
