Hi again chaps,
I have downloaded pscEx's latest build and I cant wait to get it up and running.However I first have to make sure all source files are writable.I have copied my Windowsxp disk to c:\windowsxp.I have no imagination.Then I run CMD from the run box.I change directory to c:\ and then type in "attrib -r c:\windowsxp /s /d.The thing is I dont have any previous experience using attrib and I dont know if it has worked for nothing happens in the box when I press the enter key.Any help as always would be greatly appreciated
David

What you are doing is nearly correct. Include the file name to the path C:Windowsxp*.*

When anything goes wrong with syntax, access, etc. attrib messages this.

If everything is ok, unfortunatelly attrib is very silent. The only help to see it working: The prompt disapperas and appears again when all is done (after about one minute for a XP CD).
