    Does anyone use the personal web server which comes with the Windows 98 SE
    CD-ROM? I have installed it just recently, but the installation was not
    successful. I was, however, still able to use the program, but with no
    knowledge as to how it works! I am not using a network (intranet), and
    thought that maybe I need to be on a network to make this thing work. It
    tells me to drop files on the publish icon, but I can't! Any advice as to
    how this whole thing works would be great!

    By the way, some of the reasons that the installation was not successful was
    because of error messages I was getting while installing. One of the
    messages was "An unknown error has occurred while trying to update the
    registry". When I click "Finish" to finish the installation, I get another
    message saying "Installation was unsuccessful", then it asks me to restart my
    computer to complete the installation. But as I said, I am not as worried
    about the error messages as I am knowing how to use the personal web server!

    Thanks in advance!

  2. You actually have the wrong newsgroup, as this isn't related to Windows
    Update issues. But, you might wish to post in the Windows 98 PWS newsgroup.
