    Default Installation error w/Win98

    Hey Y'all, If you can spare a moment, I ran into registry trouble while installing PWS on my home 98 machine. I believe it had to do with the MS Transaction Server portion of the install. I looked thru the postings and couldn't find any older postings regarding this type of prob... can y'all help point me in the right dir? Tanti Grazie, Kelly

    Hi,<BR> Yes I had the same error it&#039;s MTS changes to registry error<BR>number 0x80004005. Tried Norton utilities to fix registry and<BR>windows problems in general but still get the same error. It&#039;s<BR>most annoying. And I think it prevents certain features of ASP<BR>pages from working.<BR><BR>Cheers,<BR>Jim<BR>
