Category   :Install Issues
Platform    :Win95/NT
Product    :   BC++5.x


When installing BC++5.02 from the cd and doing a CD install,
I get an error "Cannot create destination file .".  What does
this mean and how do I get around it?


This is most frequently caused by these three situations:

1.  If the error states a file name that it cannot create, then
check that file on the HD (most likely a dll in the system32 dir).
make sure that the Read-Only attrib for that file is not set.
While your at it check all the Read-Only attribs in the system32
directory, and make sure that they are not set.

2.  If the drive where the temp directory environment variable
is set to, is low on disk space, then free up some disk space, or
change the temp drive to another drive on the system.

3.Check to see if the file is already on the hard drive.  If it 
is and the attbributes are not set to read only, rename the file,
and then continue with the install.  Chances are that you will 
not be able to rename the file, if this is the case reboot into
DOS mode and rename it from there.
