I have reinstalled OS9.2.2. Had to do a full reinitialize and reinstall. Now I am reinstalling all my apps. Seems that MS Setup for MS Project and MS Visual Foxpro will not run.

Does anyone know why the setup doesn't run anymore? The programs work fine on OS9.2.2 prior to my disk problems. I would like to get them installed and working again.

Any hints or pointers would be appreciated.

Check your Disk again... I bet its corrupt

OS9.2 does that unless its the FULL version. It may be, I don't know, you haven't given us enough info... what type of machine? Etc.

Ditch 9.2 and go back to a FULL 9.1, or 9.04 if you can't get a full 9.1.

Thanks for the idea. I ran Norton on the disk, the apple disk utility and Techtools. They don't see a problem. What specific issue are you alluding to?

I did a full reinstall from original CDs.

The specific error that I get is: "Microsoft Setup was not completed correctly" Nice!?

Running on a PBG3 (1999) Bronze

OSX10.1.2 & OS9.2.2 (I use OSX mostly with some work in OS922)

Thanks for your help

Try DiskWarrior, its a nifty little program thats fixes all sort of directory (and subsequently file) problems. What Ciph is alluding to that that if you upgraded to 9.2 off of the downloadable files off Apple.com its not very good. Having the full install CD of any OS will always be better than the downloads off of Apple (9.1 anyone). The only reason I am running 9.2 is because it came on my G4, otherwise I would stick with major OS releases on CD form.

Talked to an MS Support person today. It appears that this is a known issue with OS9 onwards. But the support on the two products has long expired so basically it is called "pound salt".

I will have to try and restore from the backup since it did run on OS9.2 prior to be doing the full reinstall.

I'll look into DiskWarrior too. I was waiting for them to come out with a full OSX compatible version since I now don't use OS9 other than Classic in OSX.

Thanks for your help
