I have been updating clients pc's (Windows 2000 SP4) from the Antispyware to the Defender. In most cases I just need the GDI file into the \winnt\system32 folder and then the Defender installs 100%. I am now struggling with one machine, same spec, same OS but I get the message: Windows Defender requires windows installer 3.1 or later. To view a list ......... and the link is the same one that take you to the GDI help files. I googled it and only came up with one reply from a place where you have to pay to see any replies to the question.
Has anyone else encountered this and if so has anybody worked out what the heck is going on. This particular client loves his Windows 2000 but he also wants all the latest bells and whistles out there. A far cry from my pc running Vista!!!!
Thanks guys and any input will be much appreciated!
