    What does the autoexec.nt file contain (it's a text file)? Something must have altered that file on your system for some reason.
    Check out the Forum Search. It's the short path to getting great results from this forum.

    Just make sure you download a new java virtual machine after you get it to install because it will overwrite your existing one with Microsoft's JVM version 4.0 which is just riddled with major security holes. At least it does that if you install Virtual Studio 6, If you have just VB it might not, I don't know but just something to keep an eye out for.

    If you have access to another computer running windows 2000, compare the contents of your autoexec.nt and the other computer. Make a back up of your own autoexec then copy the new one to your system32 folder. Restart your PC and then try to install VB. That should do the trick. If you don't have any other PC with win2k, let me know and i'll send mine to you.

    Are you sure you don't have it? Check to make sure hidden and system files are being displayed. Anyway, find attached a copy. Hope it solves your problem.
