WinXP SP2 OS
I have noticed that setup.exe doesn't run for a couple of programs. I thought that something was wrong with the apps. but it seems the be happening for others as well.

Any ideas?

Its a installshield error usually relating to the system32 folder

Go to MS and download the Microsoft Install repairer, it should fix your sys32 files.

Hi

I have been around MS site a number of times and can't find any 'install repairer' download. Have also tried the knowledge base and also looked for '32-bit Setup Launcher' but nothing shows.

Try this (http://support.microsoft.com/?id=884016)

You may need SP2 for the one above.

Hi

I downloaded and installed Windows Installer 3.1 v2 (3.1.4000.2435) but still cannot get 'Setup.exe' to work.

Cheers

What kind of file or program is it?

One of the programs was Adobe Pagemaker. However, this morning after the computer had been in hibernation overnight (i guess it needed a sleep), the 'setup.exe' app loaded and ran the installation program.

Thanks for your suggestions.
