Service Pack and Path

by TheChas In reply to installing downloads

Well, the first thing you should do is make sure that Service pack 3 is installed.

Then, Windows updates as needed.

I would then check the Path in Environment variables and make sure the folder that expand.exe resides in is in the path statement.

Still, installing SP3 and Windows updates should fix the issue.
