    Install Explorer Error

    I have attempted to install WinME about three times. I have tried from Win98 and also tried from DOS. Each time, after about an hour, it'll get to the point after a few restarts where it should be finally ready to run WinME when I get the following error message:

    "Explorer has caused an error in EXPLORER.EXE
    Explorer will now close
    if you continue to experience problems, try restarting your computer."

    Restarting just brings me back to the same message. This is very frustrating as I am unable to even enter into WinME. I've also tried to start up in safe mode but I still get the same message.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Re: Install Explorer Error

    Just want to let anyone else who may run into this problem that I did find the problem and have it fixed. I am now running WinME.

    I discovered that I had two identical copies of explorer.exe. One was in C: and the other was in C:Windows which is where it should be. By deleting or renaming the file in C:, I eliminated getting the error and was able to do an install of WinME.
