Hi there,

I have a problem with the installation of kmeleon under Windows NT SP6a german.
After I installed the browser I can't start it. It seems to spawn itself for half a second
and then it stops running. No browser windows pops up at all.
Any ideas.

Best wishes,

Dietrich

Ooops, sorry for posting silly questions to this forum while they are already answered in previous posts.
I should have read the other posts more carefully. Ok, here it goes "my" solution:
The problem is missing files from the kmeleon 0.1 distribution. Namely files which come with Visual C++.
I checked support.microsoft.com for the latest fix packs for Visual C++. Service Pack 4 is the most recent.
Now this service pack is a bit of a pain in the back because it's 130 MB in size. I downloaded all the parts
but I don't think all the parts are necessary for kmeleon to run. The vital part is "vs6sp4_10" which contains
"mfc42.dll" and "msvcrt.dll". You can open the extracted .cab file with a cab viewer or with some other cab
generator-extractor. You can find the files in ..\os\system\. Extract them to a temporary location and then
move them to %SystemRoot%\system32. Be careful, you have to end and stop a lot of programs because
usually mfc42.dll and msvcrt.dll in particular are used by several processes.

Wish a nice browsing experience with kmeleon!
