am trying to upgrade my pos ME box to XP without reformating since I have files on there I don't want to lose. I am unable to copy them to either a CD, ZIP, or flash memory device. I recieved this message "The option to upgrade will not be available at this time because Setup was unable to load the file E:\I386\WIN9XUPG\.DLL The system could not find the file specified." Is there anything I can do to get this POS working again? If I reinstal ME will it erase my files ? Sorry for the supid questions but Im having a long week and my brain is on vacation right now. I also recieved "Setup was unaable to locate or load setpapi.dll, or the file is corrupt. Contact your system administrator.
