We recently moved a Harddrive from a P90 clone to a Compaq Deskpro,
changed NIC and video drivers. Now when we try to start InfoMaker 5.0 we
get the error "one of your libraries is damaged, please reinstall the
product".
We reinstalled... and uninstalled an reinstalled (add another cycle) and
we get no change in the error message. I didn't think that IM loaded any
libraries in the %windir%\system
directory. We used the following install method (I apologize if any HTML
control characters wind up in this post, I normally use a text base NNTP
client):
========================================================
Installing Infomaker on Windows 95

From the CD run Setup32 and select the following options --
Install Products
32-bit - Short Names
Select Custom for Type of Install
Select the Directory to install Infomaker; The default is c:\Pwrs
(Recommended)

In Infomaker 5.0 for Intel 32
- Select everything except “Optional Painters”
- In ODBC Drivers Select only “SQL Anywhere ODBC”
- In Native Database Drivers select “ORACLE v7.1” and “ORACLE v7.2”

In IM 5.0 Deployment kit for Intel 32
- Select everything
- In ODBC Drivers Select only “SQL Anywhere ODBC”
- In Native Database Drivers select “ORACLE v7.1” and “ORACLE v7.2”

Use the Default settings for the rest of the installation
========================================================

IM 5 doesn't install anything into the windows/system directory, other than
ODBC drivers. Everything else is in the c:\pwrs directory. You should have
the following structure for IM5
c:\pwrs\im5i32
c:\pwrs\im5i32\olreg32
c:\pwrs\im5i32\sys32
c:\pwrs\sys32
There might be other directories, but this is the base product.

I would guess that your working pbl is corrupt. Im the im.ini file (in
c:\pwrs\im5i32) look for the section
[Application]
DefLib=R:\PB5DK32\Im5_ye.pbl <====change this to another existing pbl
WorkingDir=R:\PB5DK32 <====use the same directory as the
above
