Hi,

Where are you installing MSN from? Directly off the net? Or do you have a copy somewhere?

The message implies that the installation application has been corrupted. Try downloading it again.

Cheers,
Tim.

One of the MSN Messenger setup files has become corrupted,you should try downloading from the web site again using the repair option of IE that you are using.

Hi,

You need to have IE5+ installed. You've got that? I presume so...most people do these days...

Also you need to be installing the right version of MSN. Dont try to install the version for WindowsXP as it probably wont work!

The correct link to the version you want is...

http://explorer.ninemsn.com.au/install.htm

(remove spaces from the above URL)

...which is a version for Win98.

OK, if that doesn't work... Do you have anti-virus software enabled? You should disable it before doing the download/install.

Also try disabling any firewalls you have running as its possible a corruption could be introduced there.

Cheers,
Tim.

D'oh... It looks like I've pasted in the wrong link above. Try...

http://messenger.ninemsn.com.au/default.asp?client=1

(Again remove spaces from above URL)

Cheers,
