Hints and Tips for Client 32 Windows* 95 installation
- Make sure Plug and Play is disabled on the adapter. To
change this default, boot to Command line mode or MS DOS
and run SoftSet2.
- Copy the supplied EPRO.INF and EPRO.LAN onto a diskette.
- Open the Network configuration screen (My Computer/Control
Panel/Network/Configuration). Look for any reference to the
Intel EtherExpress PRO/10 ISA adapter. Highlight each one with the mouse
and click on "remove". When all instances of the adapter are
gone, click on OK and allow the machine to restart.
- As Windows* 95 is restarting, if it displays the message "Windows
has found new hardware and is installing software for it", then
Plug and Play is still enabled on the adapter. Go back to step number 1.
- Run the SETUP.EXE program for Client 32. It is located in the
\ENGLISH subdirectory of the Client 32 software.
- On the NetWare* Client 32 Installation screen, do not check the option
to upgrade NDIS drivers to ODI automatically. Select start.
- Select the "have disk" option on the Select Device screen.
Enter the drive and directory where the EPRO.LAN and EPRO.INF
files are located. Although PRO/10 ISA drivers ship with Client 32,
the ones included in archive E10CL32, are newer.
- Highlight the non Plug and Play driver.
- On the PRO/10+ Properties screen, set the I/O address to what
it was set in SoftSet2.
- On the Recommended NetWare Client 32 properties screen, set the
appropriate settings for the version of NetWare you are using.
- The Client 32 installation program will copy files. It may ask
for the source of the Windows 95 installation files. Click OK
and then enter the correct path to the files.
- The Client 32 installation will finish, and you must restart in
order for the changes to become effective.
General Installation of Client 32 with DOS/Windows v3.1x
- If you receive the message, "EPRO.LAN did not remain resident" when
starting Windows 95, verify that Plug and Play is turned off on the
adapter and that you have installed the non-Plug and Play version
of the driver.
