Re: OS Patch Install on Standalone Failed - System Can't Find File Err



CREV wrote:
On a standalone WinXPSP2 box I have copied OS and Office patches to
the hard drive, then doubleclicked to install. Both types of
patches have installed fine this way in the past. Currently only
the Office patches still install. The OS patches bring up a Setup
Error window stating "The system cannot find the file specified" -
except there is no file name specified. Anyone know which one(s)
is/are missing? Or another solution?

We don't know what patches you are trying to install and are getting these
errors with...
Anything in the event log?

Patches through the end of 2006....
