    Red face Shell=winamp.exe Changing ini files

    How are you suppose to change the system.ini file from shell=explorer.exe to shell=winamp.exe without any problems? I did it on a spare hardrive and it said error and I had to reinstall windows! Anyone know how this is done?

    Heh, windows is silly like that. If it can't find the shell it tells you that you need to reinstall it. If it gives you that error, it means you mistyped the shell.

    press f8 on startup, boot to command prompt, and type in "edit c:\windows\system.ini" and fix the shell= command.

    Make sure you don't make a typo this time :razz:

    You need the full command line

    "Shell=c:\program files\winamp\winamp.exe"

    No option to boot to command prompt? What OS are you using? What were the options?

    Well, if that's true, use a win98 boot disk to boot into dos, and edit it from there.

    Do you have the same sound card on your regular computer as your MP3 Computer? If not, your player is probably looking for the sound card in your regular computer.
