In Response To: Windows 98 '*' crash??? (Jose R. Camara)

I have the same problem and there is no work around to it other than to use ZTreeWin (ZTW). Keep your Xtreegold for DOS usage though.

If you decide to use ZTW ensure you edit the file *.BB2 in the ZTW directory if you wish to use the ZIP & Unzip feature by placing the path to I.E. PKUNZIP in front of the entry for example E:\utility\ ... The reason why I mention this is that the ZIP and Unzip feature did'nt appear to work even though I put PKZIP.EXE in the ZTW directory. I did no realize that it still required the path in the *.BB2 file in front of the PKZIP entry of each line. If you use it you will understand what I am on about. Once you have fixed it, quite the program then restart and all will be well. The text contained within the file *.BB2 does not explain how the file is used to any great degree that's why it took me a while to work it out.

ZTW is a great program and is now my replacement for Xtreegold. It has the same interface & features with the addition of handling long file names. If you use ZTW use the PKZIP V2.5 as it handles long file names very well.
