    I upgraded to XP-pro from 2000. When I went to use my dial-up, I found that no modem was installed. So I tried to install it and received this error message:
    'The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.'
    I also discovered that the installation ISScript.Msi is missing.

    Any ideas?

    Hiya and welcome

    Can you tell us the name of your modem? It may need upgraded drivers.

    Regards

    Thanks Eddie.

    It's a Creative modem. I had the upgraded drivers.

    I went ahead and did a clean install of XP. The modem installed perfectly. I've also noticed many features unavailable on the upgrade. Now I just have the painful process of re-installing, customizing, re-configuring........:(
