Having problem installing application on Win ME

I have just written a very simple app which has only 2 screens with a connection to a small Access .mdb file using a data control. I don't even bother using VSS and use the 'package and deployment wizard' to make an installation package.

Okay, here comes the problem. I tried to install the application from the setup program. Just after double-clicking the setup icon, there was a prompt that prompted me to do update and restart the machine again. So I clicked 'yes' and after that rebooted the machine. This prompt just kept coming back to me again and again and again no matter how many times I clicked the 'yes' button and rebooted the computer. It just would not let me install the app.

What is wrong??!! Any suggestion??

VB 6.0 ( no SP3, SP4, SP5) + Access 97 .mdb file on Win 98. Thanks in advance.

Go to the windows folder, and delete the setup.exe, setup.lst and setup.cab files. After that, restart the setup again...
