windows installer stalls

  TomG 16:21 13 Jun 2004

I'm trying to install the tools off the xp pro disc.

The installation gets so far and stops (no error messages). I've left it for hours but nothing happens.

I tried copying the folder onto my hard disk but this failed also. I've tried stopping and then restarting the installer service - no luck.

Installer doesn't work in safe mode nor if you strip everything down using msconfig.

Any suggestions?

Run Scan Disk and Defrag then re try downloading

Try this click here I have a vague recollection of helping out a client with this when they has problems with Office updates on an XP operating system, this despite the advice on the Microsoft website.
