WinXP SP3 Access Denied when installing
Posted on 2013-06-21
We have a pc, upgraded from Win2000 to WinXP Pro SP2, now trying to install all the patches and we're stuck on installing SP3. It gets about half way through the install phase and quits, last file it says it is installing is: fxsapi.dll, not sure if that's the problem, but the only error it gives is: Access denied. I've tried the Microsoft solution to run the .cmd file to adjust registry permissions, some change, some fail, reboot, try XP SP3 again, same thing happens. I've disabled our Antivirus TrendMicro, same thing, we really only have 1 application that we use on this box, it's tied to our security system and dials in to get updates and make changes. I'm logged in under domain admin account. I think it has to do with registry permissions, but not sure where to look or what to change to get SP3 installed, I've tried installing form the windows update site, as well as a standalone installer that we have.
Thanks for any suggestions.
