We got our XP Pro.disc. from Overclockers (nice people to deal with) and today husband installed the new programme. The old system he had was 98SE.
We had hoped to do a clean install, but what has happened we now Have XP but all the files he left on the C drive are still there.
We thought that the disc would wipe all the contents of the HDD and just leave XP pro there.
The main problem is that he bought XP pro. to get the latest XCEL programme....but it is not there. We still have XCEL 97. The PC is not currently attached to the internet as it is going to be networked to mine in a week or so.
We had saved all the important data files to floppy and so we were hoping for a clean install and a new version of XCEL.
So, can I ask all the experts to tell us where we went wrong and why haven't we got the newer XCEL prog.??
Do we have to start all over again and can some kind soul explain what to do in simple terms. I did print off endless articles on this subject but none seems to give the answer we need.
