Today I downloaded the complete CD version of OpenCASCADE and am having difficulty installing. For background I am using Win 98 on Pentium III machine with 384 megs of ram and a 80 gig hard drive.
The first error message is at the beginning of the install process. "PATH not modified. May be autoexec.bat is read only." There are two copies of Autoexec.bat on the computer; neither are read only.
The install process continues, but then I get a second error message and installation stops. Another user, Willy on Dec 11, 2001, posted about the same problem but there were no replies to his post. The error message is, "Error 1406. Could not write value folders to key..." I am trying to install into c:Programs/Downloads/Cad and Design/OpenCASCADE 4.0. I have many, many programs installed and to allow each program a primary folder on the C drive, like the default install location of OpenCASCADE, would be ridiculous.
Any ideas/solutions would be greatly appreciated. The download was rather large, requiring borrowed use of a T1 line and I am very anxious to get this program installed.
Thanks ahead for any replies.
