I have still not been very successful in getting PC CDROMS to work on
my relatively new SA RPC.
Encarta 96 tells me I don't have enough colours - my Win95 bit thinks
I have only 16 colours as far as I can see, though the PCconfig seems
to think I have 256. How do I convince Win95 of this?? I can't find
a readme file that seems to help in !PC. The user guide for the x86
Card mentions installing a Windows Screen driver but I can't find the
equivalent info for Win95.
Another CDROM which I got working on a 'real' PC this morning refuses
to work on *my* machine - it requires the Adobe Acrobat reader and has
a file on the CD to install this, called Acrobat\PC\setup.exe but if I
try to find this from within Windows95 I am told the file PC doesn't
exist, though it is definitely there if I look from RiscOS. In fact I
installed the Acrobat reader on the 'real' PC without difficulty.
Where am I going wrong?
Any help for either or both problems gratefully received.
