I have used Cool 3D successfully in the past but in attempting to reinstall the (VS10) Bonus disc into a new computer I am shown the message 'Windows was unable to find the installation program. Click back to try again. Click Browse to find the installation program manually.' Can anybody help me please. Delcole.
attempting to reinstall the (VS10) Bonus disc into a new computer
New computer generally means new operating system. Is it by chance Vista? If so you may have to change the OSs themes from Vista Aeros to Windows Classic.
Also did you locate the installer (setup.exe) file for Cool 3D on your bonus disc, and did you try running it? I'm not at home currently, where I can look at my bonus disc for VS10, but if I recall correctly you need to locate the setup file and run it.
Is it XP Pro, XP Home, and is it perhaps SP3 updated?
Is your problem with installing VS10 or just the Cool3D program? Your post is a little confusing when reading it. It does appear that you're trying to install VS10 and getting the install error.
When you insert your Bonus CD, does it Auto Run, and provide you with menu choices, such as install utilities, browse CD, ect..?
You can also try copying the Cool 3D setup files to your hard drive and running it from there. Try disabling any spyware, antivirus programs while installing. Just be sure to enable them again upon completion.
I am sorry to have given you some ambiguous information regarding this matter. I have taken your advice and have autorun the program to hard disc successfully and is now working well. Thank you for you help, best wishes, Delcole.
So am I to understand that if I have Vista OS 64 bit that I can indeed use Cool 3d Production if I use Windows Classic instead of Aero? Idf so, THANK YOU so very much...if not is there something else I am missing. Thank you again so much for your help...as always.
