    I need some help with Windows 3.11. I was installing Windows 3.11 using floppy disks. It was installing fine until it said that wfwsetup.dll couldn't be copied to my hard drive because it was used and it wasn't. I need an answer please! Thank you!

    :eek: Wow, 3.11 huh? What is the exact error message? Are you installing to a clean hard drive? What was on it prior?

    Sorry about that. I have Dos 6.22 install and I is a clean drive. You have to have a Dos installed on the hard drive first.

    Right.



    You might do a directory on the hard drive, dir, from a dos prompt, and see if you see that file there for some reason.
