I never had this problem with previous versions of kmeleon. I even updated, for the first time, to service pack two SP2 on this old machine. Are these "VC 8 Runtimes" something new to SP3?
Thanks again for the help. I just checked my disk space. With fresh install and service pack two my disk usage is nearly 80 percent of the clunky old 6gb harddrive.
I'll bid on an 80gb drive on ebay tonight.
1.) Thx for feedback.
You should not be harsh, people here are volunteers & the forum is moderated...
The older versions installed VC 7.1 runtimes directly into the K-Meleon folder. This is not so easy with the newer VC 8 runtimes. MS made it saver and harder.
The VC 8 runtimes are not part of XP SP3.
2.) When You are pressed for HDD space You can delete the backup files XP keeps to be able to roll back the SP2 & SP3 just after You are sure their respective install succeeded. That way XP with SP2 and SP3 all should fit on about 2 GB partition space.
They did on my old Pentium III. All other stuff like program files had to go onto another partition and I had to clean for temp files but it worked.
