Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop
I have a Acer T180 Desktop, that I recently replaced the harddrive on, and re-installed Windows XP.
Before replacing and installing the new hard drive, the dvd/cd burner worked great.
Since then, when I insert a CD/DVD ... the drive will see what's on the disc, but won't allow me to run it.
I get error message ''d:setup.exe is not a win32 application
I checked the ''system'' to make sure it has the latest driver - which according to Windows / XP - It does.
I replaced the IDE cable going to it.
I have another PC, that I swapped the burners back and forth, and the burner worked on the other computer, and the other PC's burner worked on this PC.
All you need to do is that put the CD in the CD/DVD drive that you have access and not properly closed. For example here is the situation. I put a cd installer with a file named in the cd setup.exe and it is located in drive D: i access the file setup.exe and I run it or install.. then I decided not to install the programs.. what I did is that is did not cancel the installation but rather I immediately open my cd/dvd drive and get the cd..
What are going to happen? the installation is in the process and I did not cancel the installation properly. In the installation logs of the windows it still have to install the programs but it cannot find the file setup.exe that is located in the Drive D:.
Try to put a cd in your cd/dvd drive with file named setupexe on the cd.. that will solve your problems. TY
