Subject:        Shakespeare CD technical problem

Mr. Cook,

One of the members of your Shakespeare list suggested that I sent you an
email discussing a software problem that users of W. W. Norton's "The
Norton Shakespeare Workshop CD-ROM" might be facing.

Whenever an owner installs the CD with the 'run from CD' option checked,
a shortcut is created.  This shortcut points to the WRONG FILE and needs
to be corrected manually.

The correct shortcut path is D:\windows\shakstud.exe, where D:\ is the
letter identifying the CD-ROM drive.

The full directions on how to remedy this issue can be found at

Please post this email to your group if you see fit. I'd appreciate any
help in making sure the CD is enjoyed without technical glitches.

Thank you,
Alessandra Zarate-Sanderlin
