I've been having some trouble installing XP SP3 recently - anyone else seen this error? I got the 350MB or so SP3 offline install, but about halfway through it stops because of a missing file: clbcatq.dll. If I skip it, it also claims to be missing clbcatex.dll, at which point if I skip the file, the whole installation fails, and uninstalls any changes it has made. Any ideas?

(I did try to do the online version, which also quits about halfway saying it couldn't find the needed files - didn't specify which ones.)

The correct SP3 package should be 316MB. Edited to change from 316GB :thumbsup:.

Sounds about right - yeah, that's the one I downloaded. Good thing it's not really 316 GB! :thumbsup: Any ideas anyone?

I find that particular file in several places, the most notable in the Windows/System 32 folder.

I also find it mentioned several times on logs of various updates, so it appears to be key to update installation.

It's not a new file, I see references going back to 2004.

If you don't have one in your current install...I'd consider doing a repair of that before doing anything else.

I see it installed in the usual places: System32, Sys32/dllcache, i386, Service Pack folders...and KB 902400.

Me...I'd do a repair install of SP2 and hope for the best or a repair of XP itself, since I have CDs with SP2 consolidated.

Yeah, that's the weird thing - it's actually already on the computer. When I manually point to a location that has the file, it doesn't recognize it. It's the weirdest thing - I suppose if it hasn't happened to you, it doesn't make much sense. Well, no, it doesn't make much sense either way! Anyway, maybe I'll just leave SP2 on for a while - at least until I get the time to reload Windows. Anyone ever seen any Virus or Spyware hide itself as those files? I just cleaned a bunch off and now AVG8, AdAware 2008, and HJT are coming back clean, but something just doesn't feel right. Oh well!

Actually I haven't, but that's not a bad idea. Everything seemed to be working fine, at least on the hardware end of things. I'll give it a shot.
