    stuck in Windows hell! pls help!

    powerdogvt Level 1
      I need to deliver a Mac DW-created website to a client, and she's a PC user who wants a CD-ROM. So far, my trials and errors are:

      1. Downloaded my site with Sitesucker, and again with WebDevil, to preserve directory structure locally. In each case, burned folder to a new CD on Mac, then tried to open files in Windows browsers.
      Result: "Can't find the file at /G:/etcetc"
      2. Copied folder onto thumb drive, then opened folder in Win browser.
      Result: worked fine.
      3. Compressed the folder on Mac to create a zip file, burned that file onto CD, tried to copy from CD onto Windows desktop.
      Result: "can't copy or move" folder, which has a lock icon on it in Windows.

      Any suggestions much appreciated!

          Why? Don't you have the site's files locally already? Just copy the root
          folder's contents in their entirety, and burn it to the CD.

          All your client would have to do then would be to upload those files to the
          root of the hosting account.

            She wants to open and view the pages directly from the CD, and it's not working on the Windows side.
