Solution or Workaround
This error occurs when trying to run ARCW, ARCEDITW and ARCPLTOW:
Too many parameters -t$arc0 File Creation Error [PC Arc/Info 3.5.1 Arc - 01/26/97] Can not create c:\temp\ t$arc0\T&EXTSML.VAR
The 'Start in' variable for those modules is not set or is invalid.
Define the 'Start in' path:

If you don't have the above icons on your desktop:
1. Click Start > Programs > Windows Explorer 2. Navigate to C:\arcexe\install 3. Grab the Winsetup.exe file and drag it onto the desktop 5. Rename the shortcut icon on the desktop to anything you like 6. Double-click this new icon. All the windows extension icons will be displayed.
Warning: Don't delete, mover, or rename any of the icons in this window.
Now you can define the 'Start in' path as described above.
