This normally helps with many problems on XTree and Win98 !

Hmmm, I can't tell you what's wrong with your attempts to run XTG 3.01 under Win98. But I can tell you what I'm doing to run it successfully under an internet up-to-date Win98 (not yet the CD version of Win98SE).

1. My Win98 shortcut icon has C:\XT\XTG.BAT in the cmd line, runs in a Normal Window, and a check in the "Close on Exit" box.

2. The Advanced Program Setting has a check in the "Suggest MS-DOS mode as necessary" box, but it never suggests DOS mode and always runs fine in a normal window.

3. 3. The shortcut properties Memory tab has all the pull-down boxes set to Auto and checks in both the Protected and Uses HMA boxes.

4. The shortcut properties Screen tab has 50 Lines initial size, and checks in both the Fast ROM Emulation and Dynamic Memory Allocation boxes.

5. My XTG.BAT says only: C:\XT\ %1 %2 %3

6. I DID have to reset the XTG configuration for Disk Logging Method from Quick to Standard when I upgraded to Win98 last year.

My only complaint is that I always have to manually enlarge the XTG window because it starts up in 50 Line mode in a 25 line window?!?! But, other than that XTG is still my favorite way to install ZTreeWin betas and updates!!

Hope this helps you, Arthur.
