Re: ARRL's QST Back Issues on CD-ROM

Thanks to all who offered suggestions.

It turns out that the QST cd-rom installation programme creates a file in a
temporary subdirectory called ~ssetup, which it is supposed to delete (both
file and subdirectory) at the end of the process. Some of the installation
programmes on the cd-rom sets apparently work properly and eliminate the
file and folder, while some don't. If the warning appears during the
installation process for one of the QST sets

access the subdirectory (\~ssetup) using the Windows Explorer, and drag
the single file in it to the trashbasket. If the message reappears
immediately, trash the ~ssetup folder as well.

The QRP-L saves the day again! Everything is now up and running.

Thanks, guys.
