||SU0168 Error During Installation --
The Windows 9x/ME setup program on the "full" and
"OEM" distributions exits with an
"SU0168" error if it thinks you are attempting
to upgrade from a previous version of Windows.
Nevertheless, you can perform an upgrade with
the following technique:
directly to MS-DOS. If running Windows 3.1x, you could also just
exit to MS-DOS. Do not simply launch an MS-DOS
prompt ("DOS box") from within Windows. If you will be
installing from a CD-ROM, make sure that the appropriate
MS-DOS drivers are loaded.
rename the files WIN.COM and WINVER.EXE --
WIN.COX and WINVER.EXX are good choices. They
will probably be in your \windows directory. If
there are other copies of these files elsewhere
on your hard drive(s), remove or rename them,
Windows 9x/ME setup program. If you are loading from
diskettes, it will be A:\SETUP, where
"A" is the letter of your diskette
drive. For the CD-ROM distribution, it is usually D:\WIN95\SETUP
(or D:\WIN98\SETUP or D:\WIN9x\SETUP), where "D" is the letter
of your CD-ROM drive.
If you already have a \windows directory (and you
probably will), setup will attempt to install
Windows 9x to \windows.000. Change this directory
specification to \windows (or wherever the previous version of
Windows is installed).
