FREE downlaod of CiscoView @ httP://

I tried to install the free eval version of Ciscoview as you offered.
I understand that this product is not supported, but....

The installation failed with 3 different errors:

error opening mib.txt
couldn't read file c:\cww\etc\cview\
snmp: MIB mapping failed

I'm running in standalone mode on an NT4.0 box

According to your E-mail, Cisco is offering the free software to promote
usage of Ciscoworks. 

I am currently evaluating network mgm't products for
a Client of mine. Ciscoworks would certainly be a contender in this
process. However, If I can't even get ciscoworks installed, I obviously
be recommending it to my Client (or to anyone else for that matter).

Additionally, if others in this mailing list experience similar
difficulties, Cisco's promotion may backfire on them!

A little assistance here would be in everybody's best interest, don't you
