    Default Dissapering Desktop in WinME

    When I install PWS, the installation goes through fine, but when I restart, my Desktop dissapears and my system tray does not load. Has anyone seen this happen?

    Default PWS has been known....

    To do some weird things in WinME<BR>You might try uninstalling, and then reinstalling PWS using the method below. (I&#039;ve never had, or heard of a problem with it.<BR>....Here are the steps...(Thanks to Bill James) <BR><BR>1) Download the newest version of PWS from <BR> http://download.microsoft.com/msdownload/ntoptionpack/en/x86/win.95/download.exe. <BR> Yes, this is the NT 4.0 Option Pack, but it includes the version of PWS for <BR> Win95 which can be used on WinMe with the following tweaks. After <BR> downloading Download.exe, run it and select the option to download PWS for <BR> Win95. <BR><BR>2) See http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q246/0/81.asp. <BR> Download the patch and implement per the instruction in this KB article. <BR><BR>3) Important! Do a Custom install of PWS, installing only the Transaction <BR> Server component. To do this, uncheck all the options, then check <BR> Transaction Server - it will add checks to the other components needed for <BR> it, but not the Personal Web Server option. <BR><BR>4) After Setup completes and a reboot, re-run Setup and add PWS. Reboot after <BR> Setup completes. <BR><BR>5) PWS should now work. Easiest way to implement using it for local copies of <BR> your web pages is to copy the contents of the entire local folder structure <BR> of your web site to C:Inetpubwwwroot (or the folder you selected during <BR> PWS setup). To clarify, if the local copy of your web site is in <BR> D:MyWebSite, with the default start page and all sub-folders located <BR> there, you copy all the files and sub-folders, but not the D:MyWebSite <BR> folder itself. <BR><BR>6) If you are using ASP and your start page is default.asp, allow your file to <BR> overwrite the default.asp file already in C:Inetpubwwwroot. If you are <BR> using index.htm or some other start page, you need to rename the PWS <BR> default.asp file so it is not the default page for the local site. <BR><BR>7) In your web browser address bar, type... <BR><BR> Http:// <BR> ...to bring up your start page. <BR><BR>
