GMI Software Fixes

On some computers the setup programs for the Wisdom of African Proverbs CD-ROM and the Operation World Plus CD-ROM give errors which cause some functions not to work, such as printing the online User’s Guide. These problems have only occurred on some systems running Windows 95, 98 and NT; Windows 3.1 is not affected. If you get errors while running the setup program, you may need to run an additional setup program which can be downloaded here.

Examples of errors that you may see:

If you see any of the above errors, follow these steps:

  1. If you have this problem with Operation World Plus, click here to download owpfix.exe (about 280k). If you have this problem with Wisdom of African Proverbs, click here to download aptfix.exe (about 280k).
  2. After you finish downloading the appropriate file, copy it to a temporary directory and run it. Four files will be created in that directory, including these instructions (FIXCD.HTM, which can be viewed with your Web browser). From there, run SETUP.EXE.
  3. Follow the brief instructions that appear on your screen.
  4. When the process is completed, be sure the CD is in the CD-ROM drive and run the software. In order to confirm that the process was successful, try going to the online User’s Guide from the Main Menu and click on the link, "To print the entire (approximately 30-page) User's Guide using Adobe Acrobat Reader, click here." If a print dialog appears on your screen, this is working properly. If the software has live Web links and you have Internet access, click on the Main Menu link to get back to the Main Menu. Click on the More Resources button, then click on the first yellow "sticky note". Click on the link (e.g. www.gmi.org) to see if your browser comes up correctly. If it does, the setup errors have now been corrected.
