This one has really got me stumped, and even worse, I need this stuff installed ASAP!
So yesterday I formatted/install windows xp pro sp2, I did my usual thing, windows updates, firefox, skype etc.. etc..
I then tried to install MS Office 2007 Enterprise. I (still do) recieved the following error message, "Setup cannot find Office.en-us\dwtrig20.exe. Browse to a valid installation source, and then click OK", allowing me to browse for dwtrig20.exe.
dwtrig20.exe IS THERE, the installation works perfectly on another machine of mine!
I then tried to install MS Visual Studio 2008 Pro, this time, i received an error while trying to install Visual Studio. It failed while installing "Visual Studio Web Authoring Component". I extracted this component and attempted to install it 'on its own' and it failed.
I have done some reading and apparently these issues ARE related.
IIS is uninstalled.
Windows Updates are ON.
I'm using a Dell Latitude D820, all the programs I'm installing are legitimate.
I have already reformatted 3 times, the error persists...
Thanks in advance
