Nancy,

did you run the netsetupxxx (where xxx is your PCPlus version) program FROM the directory on the COMPUTER or from the Flash Drive.

It sounds like you ran it from the flash drive. Pull the flash drive, go to the C:\Powerchurch\PCPLUSxxx\install and run the netsetupxxx program from there.

Hi Neil,

Thank you for your reply. I pulled the flash drive and found Power Church in my C: drive, but there is no install file there, just these two:

msvcr71.dll
pcstart115.exe


So I tried to run the exe file and got:

Usage: pcstart115 "p:\pcplus115\"

I'm doing something wrong :(

That is what sits in Program Files when it thinks you are accessing a network installation. It's there because you installed it from the flash drive.

Go through the process again, following the steps in the article linked below. Copy the "PowerChurch" folder from the flash drive onto the local disk C and then run Netsetup115 found inside C:\PowerChurch\PCPLUS115\Install.

Excellent, thank you so much. I understand now what you were saying....I had neglected to Paste it to my computer first, and it ran from the flash drive. It's actually very easy to move.
