Which OS flavour, is it XP Home, or Pro?
Haven't heard of an "XP OBI" and Windows isn't my strong suit by any means.
Anyways, an sp3 deinstall would not be any where near my first choice for fixes to try. My XP Pro doesn't have a chkport file of any type, DLLs or otherwise.
Does the installer get as far as the "Specify database passwords" dialog box?
I'm on XP Professional.
I couldn't locate a chkportdll2 file either on my system.
The installer fails at the step when you specify a location to install the database.
I've even tried to specify a different drive and folder to install the database but I still get the same error.
Any other suggestions?
I couldn't locate a chkportdll2 file either on my system.It's no regular dll you have on your system. It's usually unpacked in your temp directory when you execute the installer. The message you receive indicates that the installer either couldn't unpack properly (e.g. lack of free space), but this usually would have resulted in an error message. Or you have some Antivirus solution that treats that dll as malware (well, portscans can be bad) and has moved the file into a quarantine zone or at least blocked the access.
Another option would be your user lacks execution privileges for network operations.
The installer fails at the step when you specify a location to install the database.This could mean you don't have enough free (temp) space. How much space is left on the drive that hosts your temp folder?
