Allways restart when install.

I have wrote a program and used the 'Package and Deployment Wizard' to create a setup program. Now when I want to install my program he first say: "Count not found the fill C:\Documents and Settings\Philippe\Local Settings\Temp\msftqws.pdw\ST6UNST.exe". I have manually past the fill in that directory and it works.
The real problem is that he say he must restart because some files are out of date. I let restart him but when he is restarted and I start the installation program he gives me the same error and ask to restart. The file he refuses to "register" is shlwapi.dll.
This file exist already on the PC but he has the version 6.0.2880.1552 instand of 6.0.2900.2180.

What must I do so the computer don't ask to restart?

This is not my problem. I have made the setup program with a WinXP PC and install it on a Win2000.
