The error message I am getting is:

Fatal Error: Setup cannot create a temporary folder.

Setup cannot continue.

[ERROR=3]

This is what i found in the log file for the upgrade. I

haven't been able to find anything online about this

error message, hopefully someone has run across this

before. I am trying to upgrade a Windows 98 computer to

XP. I was able to upgrade it to ME, but I still get the

same error when trying to upgrade to XP.

Thanks,

Patrick
