HomeARC on Windows 2000! In 4 Easy Steps!
BY DAN, HUNGARY
You will need the following in order to get the HomeARC running on Windows 2000:
1. A copy of the installed HomeARC directory (i.e., C:\homearc).
2. A text editor of some sort, like Notepad.
1. Copy the HomeARC directory in its entirety to a directory of your choosing.
2. Go to the drive with your Windows 2000 directory (i.e., C:\WinNT) and go to (Windows 2000 Directory)\system32.
3. Open the file autoexec.nt (located under [Windows 2000 directory\system32]) in your text editor and add the following line to the bottom of the file:
(Path to HomeARC directory)\memctrl.com /i
Please note the above (Path to HomeARC directory) is where you copied the HomeARC directory to (i.e., C:\homearc).
4. Now reboot your computer and run the HomeARC!
NOTE: If you do not have your yourname.INF file saved, you will need to create a new one. In order to do this you will need your original HomeARC CD!
LNF: You can skip this entire process by downloading the installer for W2K â€“ it does it for you! â€“ at http://www.techxcellence.net/downloads

P.S. From WS Computer Team: GBY, Dan, for figuring this out and sharing this wonderful tip with us all! This is just great and will be a big blessing to anyone that is interested in using Windows 2000.
We have still not found any way to get the HomeARC to work in Windows ME (Windows Millennium Edition), and it does not seem that this procedure can be duplicated there. Microsoft removed support for â€œreal-mode device driversâ€
