XP SP2 Failed to Install

  fpg 23:43 16 Dec 04

Early in the install procedure there were two error messages which I do not understand -
Update.inf integrity query and
Cryptographic Service needs to be running.

Where and how ? The SP2 disk is OK having been used on another PC with no problems

Help appreciated

jimv7 - this did not work but worth a try - thanks

Santos7 - followed the thread and found the solution. Crytographic Service was set to disabled so I set it to automatic and the problem was solved. many thanks.

Note How - control panel/Admin Tools/Services/Crytographic Service/Properties -- then change the status. Never heard of it before this.

Merry Christmas both and to all who run this excellent website
