Hi there,
Can anyone help with this probelm?
I'm trying to install SP2 and the install stalls with a couple of runtime errors. The text box shows 'Runtime error 203 at 636E3EF5' and 'Runtime error at 5A003CD1.'
I've searched the Knowledge Base but can't find anythoing related to it. Is there a genius out there that can read codes like these?

Hi there,
Thanks for resonding. I have a system in the house running XP S1. The copy is validated and I went to download SP2 - no problem, but during installation the previously mentioned errors came up in a text box several times towards the end of the installation. The unit does not have a CD installed so perhaps some of the runtime errors related to CD use?
Thanks, florian1

An error that occurs during the execution of a program. In contrast, compile-time errors occur while a program is being compiled. Runtime errors indicate bugs in the program or problems that the designers had anticipated but could do nothing about. For example, running out of memory will often cause a runtime error.
Do you not have a CD ROM ?
If you do have one then why dont you just slipstream SP2 ?
