    WinXP.ini <- The truth is out there... I think.

    We just got a new computer a few months ago, and it had XP - I'm still used to using 3.1 and occasionally other still DOS-based systems like 95 and 98. I was reinstalling Borland Turbo C++ 4.5 for Windows, and it asked me to register. I've already registered when I installed it on our previous PC, and so I took the only other option: Later. I used to take care of this by going to win.ini or similar files and using EDIT.COM to take out the file. Every time I log on, I get the message saying that Windows is having problems running remind.exe - the "Register Later" program. I'm not surprized - it's old. Anyway - XP has a completely different kernel, and I'm wandering how to solve the problem this time. Anyone?

    Yea until the programs action is taken again. Check your services to make sure something using it is not running (start---programs--admin tools---services).

    try right clickin -> properties -> compatability -> run it in compatibility mode for Win95 or 98.

    if that fails uninstall it and download a new version, i think 5.05 is free.

    or like RoD says.

    Moved... Sean, I'd PM you to let you know, but I can't...
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
