    I downloaded sp1 adn extracted it to a folder.

    There are hundreds of files in there and 9 folders.

    None of which contain an .EXE file

    Anyone know how to run this?

    Whats the file name to be run?
    Thanks

    why do you want to do something that SP1 does itself. it extracts all the files itself, don't extract SP1 anywhere and just run the pack in the same way you run a normal application install file.

    NEGATIVE,

    The only message I get from clicking on the self extracting cabinet file is: invalid system32 file.

    There's probably an .MSI file you can run instead of the .EXE file.

    I feel that you did not DL/ed SP1 from M$ site...anyways here's the work around.
    Find a file named "update.inf" from all the files that you have got extracted.
    Right click the file and click on install.
    That should do it for you.

    Lepios,

    I agree, I think I need a better DL. I tried on one of these mirrors and it said complete at 71.3mb which must be wrong since sp is a 133mb file. It took 5 hours to get the 71.

    I looked in sp1 extracted files and a computer search and couldn't find update.inf

    Thanks

    The following is the message I get when ever I try to click on the cabinet file.



    --------------------------
    ---------------------------
    C:\My Briefcase\Downloads-Software\SP-XP-downloads\xpsp1_en_x86.exe is not a valid Win32 application.




    thanks

    The file name is correct, you just have a corrupted/incomplete verison. Unfortunately this means you'll have to redownload the whole thing again. If it keeps happening, disable any firewall or "download manager" programs.
