Program system error?

Posted: 12-27-2003, 02:31 PM
As with alot of people I recieved software with a few X-
Mas presents. One of them says it's compatable with XP
but I keep getting an error message.
Anyone know anything about this erroe or if you dealt
with this do you have any advice?
It was a gift to my grandson (8) from Santa and he can't
understand why his grandma doesn't know how to get it to
work.
This is the error:
An error occured durin the move data process-117
COMPONET: Program System bir
file group: ECT
file: D\space\system\Space.mdb
I've downloaded other programs just fine. This is the
only one that won't. Any help?
memory is plentiful....so?
Thank You,
lenny

Hi Lenny,

Try cleaning up the installer.

Start/run services.msc, scroll down to "Windows Installer" and double click
it. Stop the service if it is running, set the startup type line to
disabled. Click apply/ok and reboot.

Delete the contents of the temp folders, there may be a file in there
interfering with the setup routine of the installer. Get both:

C:\Windows\temp
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\local settings\temp

Now reverse the first set of steps and reenable the Windows Installer (You
can just set the startup type to manual). Reboot.

Turn off all other running programs, especially your antivirus software. Use
ctrl+shift+escape, if necessary, to "end task" on everything.

Now retry installing some software.
