ViSta Installation Problems
You might get any of the following error messagse
during installation, especially within a networked
NT environment where ViSta may not be able to
figure out the appropriate directory structure.
- STANGE FILE NAME: filename
This error message is obtained under NT when
the path specification is in NetBios syntax
rather than standard syntax. Only standard
syntax is recognized. You can circumvent this
problem by using Map Network Drive and then
indicating in a shortcut to ViSta what the
standard path names are.
- ViSta was not found in directory: directory-name:
This error message indicates that the expected
structure of the sub-directories inside the
ViSta folder is not present. The directories
will have to be correctly restructured. You
may need to unzip or download and unzip ViSta
- Your USER directory does not exist.
The user directory is not in the expected
location. Remove the wxls32.ini file from
its directory, and perform a new custom installation,
indicating the correct location for the directory.
- Did not find prefs/user directory.
The user or prefs directory is not in the
specified location. Remove the wxls32.ini
file from its directory, and perform a new
custom installation, indicating the correct
location for the directory.
- All you get is the > prompt.
You have a corrupt or missing xlisp.wks file.
Unzip or download and unzip ViSta again. Then
remove the wxls32.ini file from its directory,
and perform a new installation.
