Unable to open your tool 'sys:C/amigaguide'

I downloaded the Dpaint IV guide from Aminet. Loaded it into WinUAE, when I run the guide I get that error message. Any ideas what that means?

it is looking for the file Amigaguide in your boot partitions C directory (folder on pc)

It's probably in sys:utilities!

Also, if you go to the "information" menu item in the "Icon" menu, you could change the default tool of the guide file to "Multiview" instead.

It's "DonationWare" so if he's still around, send him a few quid.

Ok Im getting a similar problem when tryign to install XFD_User.

The Install icon is mapped to "Installer" which I dont think exists.

I then change it to System:C/Install.

But when I run it it returns an error - "Program Failed (#87000004)".

That's because they're two different programs. Install writes a bootblock to a floppy making it bootable and Installer is an interpreter for installation scripts used by many programs. You'll find the latter on your 'Install' disk or on Aminet.
