Default Re: Error

Well, problem solved I guess. The user I was trying to run this under has Admin privileges, but I also tried running everything possible "As Administrator" (the AutoRun.exe, Setup.exe, PRLauncher.exe, etc). Nothing worked. It used to get part-way thru the updates before crashing, and now it wouldn't even get that far.

I then pulled out an old hard drive that still had Windows 7 loaded on it and installed that as the boot drive (vs the XP drive I was using). I don't normally use this drive as the Product Key is in use on my main PC - but just for the exercise...
Once up and running, I installed PR from scratch and fired up the updates. Everything ran perfect. So, with no other hardware changes I'm left to conclude it was an issue with XP.

Any confirmation from the development group? Will the updates run on XP or not?

Thanks, RobBob

"The following sections describe why you may receive a given error code.

This problem may occur if a file that the Windows Product Activation (WPA) requires is damaged or missing. This behavior occurs if one or both of the following conditions are true:
1. A third-party backup utility or an antivirus program interferes with the installation of Windows XP. !!!

2. A file that WPA requires is manually modified.
