'Setuperror'

 

Buried a bit deeper on the ISO but it appeared to be in the main directory if browsing the MS Update backup on C root.

(I've deleted mine because I'm afraid that Windows will 'accidentally' start the installer if left there.)

 

I hadda setuperror64 and several others in there before I came by the standard setup executable.

 

Kinda like if you failed at auto fail you could always go in and run it manually on yourself.

 

 

BTW...hadda screenshot but forum doesn't do imgur.

This forum supports Imgur, yes. You just need the direct link (with the .jpg, .png, etc. at the end). And when are you getting that error exactly?

I didn't get an error. Those are the names of executable files in the Windows 10 installation folders.

If you meant "setuperr.log", then yes it's a log used to troubleshoot Windows 10 upgrade problems since it logs errors in it.

I was being silly.

 

I assume the setuperror.exe runs to tell people

 

"Oh noes! You have to pay twice for your Windows OS key if you want to change architecture to 64-bit!"

Probably a SorryThatSomethingHasHappened.exe in there somewhere too.


Or the all classic, smug, "Hi" exe

I still don't understand what you're asking for in this thread.
