best. I just need to find somebody on a WinME and WinNT machine
to get the information for me now.
The BuildLab appears to only be on XP machines.
I see why Eric has a time with this between versions of Windows.
Now, it appears MS has a full release with SP2 incorporated into
it that does not have the ServicePackFiles\i386\ folder and
NoteTab's Help Replace MS Notepad is working again it it. ;) I
have to check for the existence of the
^$GetWinPath$ServicePackFiles\i386\Notepad.exe for account for it
until I can get somebody to send me their CurrentVersion settings
that have that install.
If you don't like the weather here, hang around 10 minutes and
it'll change. If you don't like the current Windows build, hang
around 5 minutes and it'll change. <g>
FWIW, in WinXP SP2, the servicepack and dllcache copies of
notepad ahve to be renamed or removed in order to replace
notepad. Windows can restore from either of those places.
Furthermore, you need to get rid of the copy in
C:\Windows\notepad.exe if you want to shut Windows up from crying
about its beloved notepad missing. <g> In Win2000 and XP and XP
SP1 only the dllcache has to be dealt with to the best of my
knowledge, but I am just now getting to thos in my Clip. The Clip
is designed to do replace/restore MS Notepad (toggle) in all
versions of Windows.
