124 service CDs

My 124 CDs don't seem to work any more.

I'm using Windows XP and Internet Explorer 7.

I can get through choosing the model and get as far as picking any particular topic but it just blinks and sits there.

I've tried it on two computers with the same result.

Some compatibility issue with IE7 maybe?

I started to have same problem when I upgraded to Explorer 7. When the disc starts it says I need to install shockwave....... which can be found on the disc. WEll only way I can get it to run is to go to My computer, click on C: drive then click on Model 124 on drive D. Then click on Program folder and then click on, I believe, 124Avail icon. Wierd but for some reason this has worked. Another way I found to work is to open it up using Netscape.

On my recently purchased 140 CD's Adobe 5.1 installed as part of (what I call) the hook software on the computer. This is even though I have Adobe 7.0+ installed as well.

I think that the older MB CD's don't work very well with the later versions of Adobe, which my CD uses to display the actual topics contained on the CD. I do know that when I changed the association for PDF files back to Adobe 7.0+ from the 5.1 setting (which was put in place when I installed the CD), the MB CD wouldn't work correctly. Restoring the association (done via Windows Explorer - select Tools, Folder Options, File Types and find PDF in the list - then point it to C:\Program Files\Adobe\... don't remember the rest of the path, but look for Acrobat 5.1 or something similar, then Reader and inside that Acrord32.exe.)

You also might try one of my Indexes, which will make finding stuff on the MB Service Library CDs much easier. Follow the simple instruction in the readme file that comes with the download.
