Hi there Barry,

Check to see if your Installation CD hasw any blemishes or scratches on it.
That might be preventing the disk from being read properly and boffing the
install.

Let us know what happens!

thanks for your response
I checked the disk and it seems to be fine. Prior to the cannot continue
message i get a series files such as cfgmgr.dll that setup cannot delete.
Hovever I select setup says it will not interfere with the install and
provides a skip option. After several of these I get the setup cannot
continue message.
best regards

Hi there Barry,

In that case, if you have multiple memory modules, try swapping them around,
or if you can, change them altogether and see what happens.

Let us know how it goes!

thanks for your suggestion:
I changed all the memory modules with no change. I should note that prior to
setup providng the cannot continue message i get a series of files beginning
with cfgmgr.dll that setup cannot delete this will not prevent setup from
continuing. In any case I am given the option to skip this file . After
several of these messages I get the setup cannot continue message

Hi there Barry,

I'm very much inclined still to think it's the media in that case...or
possibly the Optical drive from which it's reading...do you have a second
optical drive in the machine you can put it in?

Hi there Barry,

Yeah...I'm seriously thinking it may be media at this point. Do you know
which version of Windows you have? Is it Pro or Home? And also, is it an
OEM or FPP (Retail Box)? Depending on the version, I might be able to help
you out with getting replacement media from Microsoft.

Hi there Barry,

You might want to see if anyone you know happens to have a PRO OEM Disk
available, or possibly see if the place where you purchased the software may
be able to burn a copy for you. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any places
that were trustworthy enough to pull an image down from.

If all else fails, you can get replacement media from microsoft by filling
out the following form:

Hope this helps.

Best Regards,
