Well the reason that the file isn't found is because C isn't your CD Drive. Go to Start > My Computer. Here, try and find which one is your CD Drive. It's most likely something like E or D. If it is E or D, replace the C in C:/setup.exe. So instead of typing that in Run you would type E:/setup.exe or D:/setup.exe.

Hope this helps :)

yes i am
Do the following
Make sure the cd is in the drive
Go to
Windows Explorer
Click on the D drive
Look down the list and make sure there is a Setup.exe file on the root directory of the cd

If there is no Setup.exe then see if there is a Autorun.inf or Autorun.exe file
if there is either of these files then retrace steps in post 6 and instead of
D:\setup.exe
type D:\Autorun.exe
or autorun.inf

post back with results

Don't understand what is wrong. March 29th I installed software for a digital camera and it ran fine, no problems. Just popped in the old cd and zipped thru installation.

Hmm thats strange. Ok I need to see whats on the disc.
Do the following
Make sure the cd is in the drive
Go to
Windows Explorer
Click on the D drive

Next click on your Print Screen button on your keyboard
Now go to Start> All Programs > Accessories > Paint
In the empty white area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your desktop

In your next reply attach the screenshot. If the file is to large then go to HERE and register. Upload the file and then post the link to the file

The link is not giving me the file you uploaded. It just goes to the mediafire homepage.
Look at the page you get after uploading the file. On the right there should be a text of the link to copy and paste. Please include in next post
