Hi Folks -

I am running XP Professional SP2 and have the SP3 CD. However, it won't autorun when I insert it. Is there a setting I can change in Windows that will allow this type of CD to autorun or is there a file on the CD I am supposed to double click to get it to run?

Thanks very much!
John

Click on "Setup.exe"

Thanks.

I don't see Setup.exe in the root folder, but I do see WINDOWSXP-KB936929-SP3-X86-ENU.EXE.

I do see Setup.exe in the subfolder called DOTNETFX, and another Setup.exe in the SUPPORT --> TOOLS subfolder.

Which one should I double click?

Thanks again.
John
