Hi, I'm trying to install VMWare on my WindowsME, and get the following
'Error1723. A problem with Windows Installer Package. A DLLfor this install to complete could not be run.'
I also notice that my System Restore no longer works. Any suggestions as to what I can do will be very much appreciated.
Thanks Sarum.

Thanks Johnboy, I was installing from the net, so CD not involved. Your Google address suggests that 1723 is a common problem; and I shall work my way through the sites. Thanks again - Sarum

Hi Sarum,

A quick look at the vmware site (http://www.vmware.com/products/desktop/ws_specs.html) seems to suggest that it doesn't support your operating system.

Just a thought :)

Simply, Thanks for your reply. You're right, a quick look at the page you suggested would have saved me a deal of time - may I add that 'quick' may not be the word; but thanks again. Its good to be reminded that its worth going back to where you started to find a fault.
Cheers
