Can't run 1701 Ad with Windows XP SP3

1701 AD has been on my computer and played successfully for almost a year.

I recently installed Windows XP SP3. Tonight I couldn't start 1701, I couldn't uninstall 1701 nor could I re-install.

The message I got when trying to install 1701 was:

1701 AD Autorun
Could not start setup.exe
Operation: open file.\\setup.exe
Parameter: Directory: E:\flags:10

When I try to use the setup.exe it tries to read the disk but keeps telling me to insert the originial disk which I have.

I'm even getting errors when I try to go the http://support.asyr.com/

Use restore point and go back to before SP3. Wait a couple of weeks and download it again. They should have the bugs out by then.

I cannot get rid of pceu virus on a windows xp pro fujitsu desktop because it has disabled safe mode and I do not have the windows xp cd to reinstall windows and the cd/dvd drive does not work .


Download the SP3 installation ISO. Save it to your Desktop. Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop. Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next." Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn. Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive. Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn." Click "File," then "Browse for a source file." Navigate to your Desktop and select the SP3 ISO file. Click "Open." Click the blue "ISO to CD" button located on the bottom left of ImgBurn. The program will begin creating the Windows XP SP3 installation CD. This process may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the speed at which the CD-R/DVD-R is being burned. Click "OK" once the CD-R/DVD-R has finished burning. You've successfully created a Windows XP SP3 installation CD.

My computer only boots successfully after a forced shutdown.


Is it possible that you have installed winxp twice? You say that you installed XP Pro sp3 was that an upgrade from xp home? if so then you will need to uninstall one or both versions of XP then install only one.. Make sure you backup any important files first though

Did you try uninstalling the last batch of updates?
To see the updates under "Add or Remove Programs", you'll need to check the appropriate box at the top.
If uninstalling does not help, you may have to start over.

Possible approaches to avoid the same issue when starting over:
  • Don't use SP3, unless you know that you *need* it. Check Wikipedia to decide whether you need it.
  • Install OS with SP2 and all updates, only then apply SP3.
  • Don't install all updates at once. Install them in batches of, say, 10 a batch. If the same thing happens, you know which batch was responsible.
