Problem with Active Sync Install

Win XP Pro, SP3
I am having difficulty installing Microsoft Active Sync 4.5.
Having DL'd the setup file from Microsofts site, when I run the installation file, I get an error message:

Windows Installer
The feature you are trying to use is on a
CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not
Insert the 'Microsoft ActiveSync' disk and click OK.

I am unable to get any further because I do not have the requested ROM.

Exactly the same thing happens if I use the setup file DL'd from FileHippo.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think I got it on a CD with a acer pda it then allows updating it. So you may need to buy the first one. Not sure on it or get it with Hardware as I did

I have tried using it both directly and via the dsktop. The results in both cases are the aove error message.

Microsoft Active Sync is free from Microsoft and other sites. I have used it in the past without a disc. I don't know why I am getting this error message.
