Howdy:

Does your system meet the minimum requirements especially the processor:

Supported processors: AMD Athlon 64, AMD Opteron, Intel Xeon with Intel EM64T support, Intel Pentium 4 with Intel EM64T support

Murray

Addendum: I just read your profile and, if that is the system you are trying to install this program on, forget it.. You don't have the required processor for it.. I take it you did NOT read the "minimum system requirements" notice before downloading and trying to install right ??

If you had read their link you would see Windows XP Professional x64 Edition trial software is what they are trying to install..

Their processor won't handle this version..

I have no OS.
I got attacked by a virus and I lost all of my C:\ files.
So I thought I could download windows XP Pro trial!
Yes, my computer meets requirements.
I am trying to run it from DOS. (MS-DOS Prompt)

Anything wrong?

No, your system DOES NOT meet the requirements of the trial you are trying to download..

You only have a Celeron 1.1 processor and you need way better for the 64bit XP to run..

Learn to read what you are getting and what you have to have in order to run it..

Once more.. straight from the link you provided.. in the System Requirements area..

Supported processors: AMD Athlon 64, AMD Opteron, Intel Xeon with Intel EM64T support, Intel Pentium 4 with Intel EM64T support

Now, what you are running..

Intel Celron Processor (1.1 GHz)

Your processor doesn't even come close to what is needed!!
