Recently had to reformat my PC, and decided to update Windows XP to Service Pack 3 (Previously only used SP1), but now can't install MusicMatch 8.2. After a few moments, InstallShield is classified as "Not Responding" and upon ending the process, the following message is displayed:
"An error ocured while launching the setup. The remote procedure call failed"
What does this mean, and is there a way to get MusicMatch v8.2 working on XP with Service Pack 3? I really don't want to use any other version of MusicMatch
Re: MusicMatch Jukebox v8.2 won't install on XP SP3
After some searching, I found out that if you uninstall Internet Explorer 7, your Musicmatch will come back to life. It worked for me, I use Musicmatch 7.1 from Dell.
If you tried to uninstall to fix it and couldn't get it to do so, or if you tried to fix it by installing over the top of it, just do a re-install after removing IE7.

What do you mean by you can't download a new version of Musicmatch? Are you asking for the download link for Musicmatch or did you already downloaded the software but having trouble installing it? If you are looking for the download link then here it is:
This is because it no longer exists in this form. Musicmatch was bought out by yahoo who has since sold it to Rhapsody. You would need to download their version as the older musicmatch software is no longer supported or updated. Sorry. Hope this points you in the right direction.
It is recommended to disable the anti-virus during the download. Simply because there are so many different anti-virus software versions available and they can (and sometimes have) caused iTunes to not download correctly if at all.
Your OS is your Operating System.
IE: windows xp 2002
If you do not know what service pack you are running you can check it by opening your start menu and right clicking on My Computer. When the drop down appears, click on Properties.
Here you will see
Microsoft Windows XP
(SERVICE PACK SHOULD BE LISTED HERE)
if its not service pack three then you need to update your operating system.
You can do that by clicking on the Automatic Updates tab. Make sure that Turn off Automatic Updates is NOT selected. I prefer the middle option of letting me pick which updates to install or not install personally.
I would do the check on your OS before uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes for sure though. Let me know how it goes :)
