Windows XP and Vista Installation Issues

Some Windows XP and Windows Vista machines have problems running the Operation World installer.

Computer Operating System

The Operation World CD-ROM is not intended to run on a Microsoft Windows version earlier than Windows 95 or a Macintosh version earlier than the PowerPC. Search capability on the Mac requires a fairly modern machine (200MHz PPC with 128MB memory and MacOS 8.1).

Today's Prayer Summary somtimes doesn't work on Macintosh

The Today's Prayer Summ. icon on the CD fails on single-digit days of the month. A patch is available.

Browser Software

The Operation World CD-ROM is not intended for use with browser software earlier than Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 or Netscape Navigator 4.0.

Operation World Database Issues

1. Overlayed Windows: When the user presses a button on the toolbar to create a new data view, the newly created window exactly overlays any previous window (including a window used to select the country, denomination, etc.). To solve this problem, click in the bar at the top of newly-created window and drag to another location on the screen to expose the underlying window.

2. Installation with Existing Borland Database Engine (BDE): If the installer finds an existing software installation has installed the Borland Database Engine (BDE), the Operation World database will report missing modules and will not run. A patch for this problem is available.

3. Non-administrative users on NT/2000/XP systems: The OW database must be installed by a user with Administrator permissions on these systems. After installation, the database will not run for other users. A patch for this problem is available.
