Subject: Q: "Original Oxford English Dictionary on Compact Disc"
I have not been able to get my Department's "Original Oxford English
Dictionary on Compact Disc" to work under Windows 95. The CD-ROM,
single disc version, was copyright 1987 by Oxford University Press and
published on Compact Disc by Tri Star Publishing of Fort Washington, PA.
The program to access the CD simply hangs up in Windows 95, in a MS-DOS
window, and in the MS-DOS mode.
I have called the two numbers in the documentation, but they are no
longer assigned to Tri Star or Oxford UP USA.
I would like to buy the OED 2 on CD-ROM for the Department, but I just
hate not being able to use this $600 plus CD.
Has anyone had and solved this problem? How? Is there a Windows 95
