Default Ready to rock the Zeitronix, but now I have problems....

I'm all setup with a laptop and Zeitronix, but when I try to open the program I get this error "Error Starting program
The ZDL.EXE file is linked to missing export MFC42.DLL625" and then I get another one that says "A device attached to the system is not functioning."

I'm running Windows98 and the computer seems to be working fine. I can open the program on my desktop just fine.

One thing I noticed is the software CD says "Windows95" on it, but I know it works with windows 98. WTF?

Good luck...why not just try wiping the Zeitronix program off and installing it again before upgrading to XP

Tried that a couple times. It's just not working.

XP won't install because I only have 32mb and I need 64.

I can't get this computer online for the life of me. I'm about to run to staples and buy a Netgear USB wireless adapter. This sucks.

I think that your MFC42.DLL file just has to be updated, this is a problem that I believe occurs in the context of other programs.
MFC = (in the programming world) classes that programs use, so if you dont have the right stuff, your program won't run.

try to update that somehow. I dont know anything about 98, but maybe there's some fix. google it and try microsoft's site or something.
I also think that 2000 may work for you, it's got less required system load. you can give that a shot.

I have to get the laptop online first. It doesn't have a modem or any ports for one or anything. Not even a floppy, but it does have a CD drive and one USB, which is all I really need.

One thing I noticed is that when I download the program on my desktop with XP I have to unzip the files first, but with the laptop on 98 it doesn't ask anything about unzipping. It just skips that whole process.

Don't go unzipping ----, you know where that lead to I personally am starting to think Windows 98 is just garbage. I have had problems with it on my old laptop for a couple of year, kept having restore the computer. It got to the point that W98 would not even let me get on the net. I bought a new laptop that runs XP and it rocks. Get the memory, it should be cheap and do the upgrade to XP.

I just did some tinking and upgrading the memory looks very easy. I might just try that and see what happens.
