Error messages in TIGER/Census Tract Street Index (CTSI) Version 2 Windows software

INSTALLATION ERRORS

Most installation error messages can be ignored. Click on OK to continue and proceed with installation process.

RUNTIME ERRORS

Error message: "Cannot find installable ISAM" or "Reserved error 1070"

If you selected default drive and path during installation, go to step 3.

  1. You selected a drive other than the default (C:) drive when you installed the CTSI Windows software. Edit \WINDOWS\CTSI.INI so that the line that states dBASE III=C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\XBS110.DLL has the correct drive designation.

  2. You selected a path other than \WINDOWS when you installed Windows. Edit \WINDOWS\CTSI.INI so that the line that states dBASE III=C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\XBS110.DLL has the correct path designation.

  3. If the program worked at first, it is likely that you subsequently installed a Visual Basic program that overwrote the drivers. If you did not install a Visual Basic program, some CTSI system files may have become corrupted. Erase \WINDOWS\SYSTEM\XBS110.DLL and \WINDOWS\SYSTEM\VBDB300.DLL. Rerun setup program. During installation, you may disregard many or all messages you see by clicking on OK.

Multiple Windows programs that conflict with TIGER/CTSI
Note that Windows programs that will conflict are at least partially written in Microsoft Visual Basic.

Each time that you run an install or setup, save a copy of VBDB300.DLL and XBS110.DLL to another subdirectory for safekeeping. You may create a different subdirectory for each program in which case you can keep the original filenames in the target backup directories. If you want to store these files from the CTSI installation with the files from the installation of another program, in the same subdirectory, you will need to copy the files to a different filename in the target backup directory only. If you are going to use a program that conflicts with the last program that you have used, erase VBDB300.DLL and XBS110.DLL from the system directory and copy the appropriate versions. This can be automated with the creation of a batch file.

Only one CD-ROM folder in the Windows software

If you see one cd-rom folder when clicking on your cd-rom drive, that is usually the default cd-rom disc directory. Double-click on the cd-rom drive letter seen in the second window that contains the CD-ROM folders.
