[WriteLog] 11.07 install error.

Thanks for the advice Dean.  There are 7 computers here that are in various
networked configurations during contests - all used for logging on WRITELOG
and all working fine.  I have one old WINDOWS ME (Don't laugh) computer I
never use for logging and never hook to anything.  It has no USB devices,
keyers, micro-anything attached.  Just a bare bones computer I use for log
storage, backup, and data analysis.  About all I ever run on it are WRITELOG
and Excel.  Every prior load of WL was just fine - but I need the newest
version to get the Ontario sections straight in yesterday's contest.  Yes -
it should be thrown out or upgraded, but its perfect for the purpose
intended :-)   I think the unzip program inside 11.07 is looking for a .DLL
that isn't there or is not a recent version.

Are you actually planning on using the software from this machine or is this
just a question to see how resourceful the list is??


What hardware are you using?? Any USB devices or interfaces?? Winkeyer??
Microham Keyers?? Antenna switches?? Rigs?? 


I suspect the answer is to be found somewhere in that direction but you
seriously should consider running the software on a machine that meets the
minimum hardware spec.

I get the following error trying to install 11.07 on a VERY OLD machine:

"A device attached to the system is not functioning."   It loads on all the
other computers around here.

Any ideas?
