That's what's happening right now? Can you explain a little more about that?
Yes it's not an error window I have ever seen before. I took screen caps of each message and posted the .jpeg image with a brief description of when it happens.
When I click the SAS.exe (again tried both versions), [attachment=2]wizard.JPG[/attachment] is the first image I see. It acts like it's trying to install a program the same as it always has in the past. Then I get [attachment=1]Installer2.00.2600.0.JPG[/attachment] using the Windows Installer version that comes with Windows XP Pro. I do not have any service packs installed, nor have I ever updated anything relating to XP on this computer. I assumed the error meant I needed a newer version of Windows Installer so I went to Microsoft's site and got the updated Windows Installer 3.01.4000.1823 V2. After installing the new version of Windows Installer I try to again run the SAS.exe (both version) and get [attachment=2]wizard.JPG[/attachment] again as I should. But after the progress bar completes I get [attachment=0]Installer3.01.4000.1823.JPG[/attachment]. It's like this version of installer has individual commands needed to run a simple .exe rather than using a wizard even though the Install Wizard box does pop up as it always has for every other program.
