Powerquest Partitionmagic - Patch to version 8.01

  busybaz 12:15 25 Mar 2004

Installed partitionmagic 8.0 on new windows 2000 system but cannot run prog - error message "error #1874 configuration file not found"

Google search seems to indicate answer is to download patch to version 8.01. All the recorded Powerquest links for this patch now eventually lead to Symantec pages, & they only seem to have version 7.0!!

Anyone have the patch or any ideas?

If all else fails I've got the patch on file, it's 12.15mb zipped.

Manythanks for the quick responses. Already tried the suggested reinstall from the link, no joy & 12.15mb is a too large for email. What next?

Symantec bought Powerquest, just hope they do not make a mess with Partition Magic.

How big's your mailbox,busybaz? If you go to

click here

you can open a junkmail account with a free 15mb mailbox and I could send it there.

Or do you have a Yahoo ID? If so I could split it with HJSplit and put the bits in my Briefcase.

leo49 - Thanks for the offer. Don't know the size of mailbox (have you tried finding anything on the NTL site?!!!!) so have fired a query to them -do not hold your breath!

Suppose you need to know capacity to determine what size to split files to - watch this space or do I mail you direct?

Get in touch direct and we'll sort it out.

If you want big mail space, you could try lycos click here.

Another way is both of you get to msn messager and transfer file from there.
