Cannot install FrontPage 2000 on Windows 2000 SP4
Posted on 2003-10-27
I've never seen this problem before, nor have I found any answer to it on the Web.
Basically I'm trying to install FrontPage 2000 on a Win2k SP4 machine. I enter my name, accept the EULA and tell it to do a typical install.
When the progress bar is about 1/3 of the way over, it tells me that windows files must be updated for my installation to proceed, and to insert my Service Pack 4 CD. It does not give any other option, such as browsing for the appropriate files on my hard drive. It also does not like the CD when I insert it and then refuses to install.
The actually error message, which I don't get until after I've inserted the CD, mentions "windows protected files".
It's really frustrating because I don't wish to wipe the user's entire machine and reinstall everything for the sake of one program. Any tips are greatly appreciated.
