I get an error when I open Add/Remove Programs. This is since installing PatchXP. Any help guys?
That doesn't look too good. I am not fimilar with patchXP, what does it do? If possible do a system restore to before you installed it.
Now I know why I should have used System Restore
...should take people's advice more often. Anyway... that isnt helpfull... anyone got a solution?
What version of XP are you running? I don't think PatchXP works with OEMs
What's an OEM?
Im running SP1 if that helps.
OEM usually means you purchased your computer with the software already loaded
I'm running XP Pro with SP1 and don't have a problem with PatchXP. My XP isn't OEM
I bought my copy of XP, so that makes it not OEM then.
Hmmm... would re-installing XP work?
That usually happens when the syle your using isn't really compatible with XP, or actually compatible with the Add/remove section.
Switch to a different theme, try the regular XP theme first, and see if it goes away, then use a theme that doesn't cause that error.
That's what I did anyway.
I reinstalled SP1, and the error has gone away. It must have been a problem with the theme then, because I ran the patch and it works without the theme on.
The theme I was running was: FatalE from http://www.studio-28.tk/
Ooooh, I just found this on their site.
I guess Ill give themes a miss for a while then.
So far, I haven't had any problems with PatchXP and themes :shrug:
just rename the shell folder of the theme you are using to the name of the theme and voila problems solved
sboulema hit it. Read this.
