After 99% of QuickTime has been downloaded, I get a message that says "Windows cannot find msworks.exe. This program is needed for opening files of Zip type." I currently have MSWorks 4.0 installed (on an IBM Aptiva computer, with Windows 95 system), and I cannot find the msworks.exe file -- I'm sure I've deleted it. The Aptiva "diagnostics and utilities" cd doesn't contain the file; nor does the "product recovery" cd. When searching on Microsoft's website, it appears that the .exe file is on a floppy disk (which I don't have), and not the cd. Any ideas how I can load the .exe file OR how I can load QuickTime without needing this file? I absolutely need QuickTime in order to teach an online course starting on Monday.....Thanks!

Here is a link with instructions for reinstalling MSWorks 4.0 on an Aptiva. Hope it helps.

Keith,
Thanks! The winzip file opened the QuickTime file, and I didn't have to worry about the msworks.exe file after all. :tazz:
