When i try to run this file it won't open and "Send report to Microsoft" appears.This is what is shown under the Technical Details in report:- C:\Doc.and Set.\name\Local Settings\Temp\WER4.temp.dir00\accompat.txt. Does anyone know what the problem is.

Don't you need to save it to floppy?

This is the download thats used on computers that already have an OS.It's over 3MB.I suppose i can download the floppy one and use it if i disable existing disks.

i just used it a few weeks back to transfer everything from my old drive to my new maxtor and the first download i tried was the floppy version. it didnt work(gave me an error saying could not find X:/L.bat on the floppy even though it was) but the windows version worked ok for me.

When MaxBlast gave me trouble,I found a post stating the software isn't happy if you use an NVidia graphics card.I used to get a "General Protection Fault" error.

I managed to use a Maxblast floppy on the new disk after i disconnected power from the other disks.You could be right about the graphics as i have NVidia on this computer and it would not run on another which has a NVidia card as well.Pity it wouldn't work with the bigger Maxblast download as you can do a lot more with it.Thanks for the pointer about NVidia.
