HP OARS tool

Does anyone have a set of instructions on how to install this tool since they got rid of the ASTaware Search Tool. I am trying to install it on an XP laptop where I used to be able to run previous versions. I run the oars_installer.exe which completes OK. I then run oars.bat which opens IE with a page not found error.

There must be a step in between that I am missing but can't find anything that tells me what I should be doing.

Looking forward to responses.

Regards, Mike.

Are you still having a problem with this? 


Check for an existing OARS icon showing in your task tray.  If it exists, kill the javaw.exe process running and then try restarting the oars.bat
