Well you certainly came to the right place, Bob. Check out the other messages here and the other pages of this XTree Fan Page website for answers to your questions about XTree.

Yep! ... been there, ... done that, too. Although I never had your problems using XTreeGold under Windows 95, and later even 98, and now also under Windows ME & NT4, there are some things that Explorer does better. Then I found ZTree, and my prayers were answered!! (see below for more)

Hmm... Perhaps it's the driver for your Zip drive that only makes the disk available to Windows and not the DOS mode that XTree runs in. You might try an updated driver from >>http://www.iomega.com ANYONE ELSE HERE HAD THIS PROBLEM?

> Is there some way to utilize xt with Windows 98?

Sounds like your immediate problem with XTree under Windows 98 should be fixable by following the instructions at >>http://xtfp.arkanda.net/x36faq.htm

But there's still the basic problem that XTree development has not kept up Windows and hardware development. That's where ZTree comes in to pick up the slack!! Check out the XTree "clones" page at >>http://xtfp.arkanda.net/x63clone.htm for comparisons. Or just go directly to the source at >>http://www.ztree.com/html/ztreewin.htm

I can't say enough about how ZTreeWin has carried on the XTree tradition for the new 32-bit versions of Windows. More info is available at >>http://www.serve.com/vico/index.html and the ZTreeWin Forum at >>http://www.serve.com/vico/bbs1/config.cgi

Hope this helps you, Bob. Come join the fun!!!
