What program is it g231?

 

At what stage in the setup do you get the error message? Any other part to the message?

 

Have you also turned off all realtime anti virus etc and disconnected from the internet? (sorry had to ask :) )

 

As a last resort try to install in safe mode.

Sorry g231 I don't know enough about this RoseOnline to make anymore suggestions.

 

As I mentioned earlier a trip to their forums seems the next obvious step.

I am no "gamer" but from my research a lot of those sites don't want to wait for any download manager.

Just Save it and extract and use their installer.Normally everything goes to 1 folder like CCleaner does.

Good luck,

q231, your screen shot is definitely Vista.

 

Unless you found a really good Aero theme for XP, I can't help but think you are running Vista, and that could be the source of all your problems.

Can your archiving software extract the setup file, if not maybe UE can and hopefully it can and they have a normal setup file inside the archived setup.exe file.

 

Other than that maybe InstallShield is corrupted on your system, it can happen.

 

Got this from the Sun Java website about a corrupted InstallShield:

okay i give up i think i will just reformat my pc. :lol:

I would use Dial-a-Fix first !!! Some users may not realize you are joking.

But I am serious.

Yes, Dial-a-Fix is a great source to reset things.I owe DJLizard a lot of donations.

That little "hammer" icon at the bottom sure comes in handy.I have reset Windows Firewall and System Restore and a few other things with Dial-a-Fix TechWiki. http://wiki.djlizard.net/Dial-a-fix.

Not to mention getting Windows Update and Windows Automatic Update fixed.

His site and he is a good friend to the members of this forum.

I have learned a lot using his links.

 

I would recommend everybody get the latest version and at least save it in My Documents to avoid

the big rush when everybody tries installing and using WinXP SP3.

I had it go corrupt on me once because some program that was built with InstallShield must have not had the best install routine. I had to jump through some confusing hoops to get it fixed. Unfortunately the InstallShield website isn't anything like it was when I went to it for a setup file to fix my problem, so I don't know what to tell you.
