Had a good thing going and everything working until a virus showed up. Wiped the hard drive, reloaded the Windows XP OS, loaded other software from discs, but the (Cisco) Linksys AE2500 USB wireless device won't light up and when I try to install the software from the disc, it says, "The application failed to initialize properly. (0xe015002) Click OK to terminate the application. I have verified that the USB port works with flash drives.

You have no idea how much I will appreciate any help. THANKS!!!

0xc0150002??

Install

Visual C ++

Restart the PC and try to install the software

If that fails,you need to download latest updates(C++ and framework) and then install the software

good luck

Thanks so much for the response. I downloaded from the link and restarted the computer. When I started to run the software I ran into the same error. Where can I find the C++ updates.

Thanks again for the help.

Again, I really appreciate the help.

Downloaded all critical updates, restarted the computer, and unfortunately received the same error. I've also noticed that the Cisco USB router does not light up "blue" like it used to. Thanks for the help.

AKehl, just a thought :-

Obviously if you cannot install your Linksys device, you cannot connect to the internet with that computer, but if you can connect through another one - a friend's or a public one - you could go to the Linksys web-site and download the latest XP drivers for that model onto a memory stick and install from that. But use the correct install system. Most wireless units ask that you start the install with the unit disconnected, and then during the install process you are told when to plug the unit in.

Guys, thanks again for the assistance. Hit the Windows and R keys and didn't find any errors or unusual devices. I have the PC hooked up to the router with a cable so that's how I'm able to use the internet, download Windows XP updates, etc.

I downloaded the latest Linksys drivers and they end up in a folder titled "xp" In the folder are the following files of which I'm not sure what to do with any of them.

AE1200xp.sys
AE1200xp64.sys
AE2500xp.sys
AE2500xp64.sys
bcmh43xx.cat
bcmh43xx64.cat
bcmwlcoi.dll
bcmwlcoi64.dll
bcmwlhigh5.inf
Again, thanks everyone....

That, and/or just plugging in via your ethernet port if you have one.

Chris, thanks for trying to help. Unfortunately, this model of wireless router device has a USB connection and this wouldn't fit in the Ethernet port.

I'm back to the drawing board on this. Nothing seems to be working as I simply cannot get the drivers loaded for the device.
Thanks again everyone for reading, responding, etc.

SUCCESS!!!!!

Apparently, rather than using the Setup CD or downloading the drivers from the Linksys site, I needed to physically plug in the device first, then go to the "Add Hardware" routine, then search for the drivers on the CD.

It worked!!!!

Thanks again to everyone who responded. I would have never figured this out on my own.
