Re: access denied when installing win xp service pack 3
Are you logged in as an administrator on your PC? Access Denied is almost always an indicator that the current logged in user does not have sufficient permissions to install applications. Let us know if this is not the case. Hope this helps!

if your question refers to service pack 3 it is that lastest upgrades to the original operating system
for example win xp came out as win xp
later on in it's life a service pack 1 then 2 and finally a service pack 3 was issued where by all the updates were in a pack so that if you had win xp disc and installed it , then you could install service pack 3 and the operating system was up to date
xp is now no longer supported by microsoft and is rapidly falling out of service
win 7 is now up to service pack 1 ( last time I looked ) but with the large amounts of installing up dates , it may be around pack 2
.with the release of win 10 , win 7 will be no longer supported after a period of time
You should be able to get XP 32-bit SP3 added. However, Windows Update will not work with XP SP2. Thus you will need to manually download the update and then install it. This is the link to the update: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24 . Click on the Download button. This is the version usually used for computers that aren't on a network.
I hope this helps.

I hope you have WIN XP on your computer. Windows XP has 3 versions of service pack (SP) available. SP1, SP2 and SP3. For more information on obtaining SP, please refer: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322389
Following is the direct link for downloading SP3 http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=68C48DAD-BC34-40BE-8D85-6BB4F56F5110&displaylang=en
NB: SP is a huge file and will take long time depending on the speed of your internet connection. SP2 download would fail in 'dial up' internet connection. Also installation of SP will take a long time, depending on the configuration and the performance of your system
The only known solution to this problem is to either uninstall service pack 3 and 2, install the modem and install again SP 2 and 3, or format the computer, install Windows XP service pack 1, install the modem, then install SP 2 and SP3. A pain, I know. It's probably easier to just change modem. I welcome any developer who is willing to build an unofficial installer for this modem to work with SP 3 and Vista. Why throw away a useable modem only because the company that made it wants you to do so?
Beethoven 9 is not part of the service pack. Go to microsoft and download the service pack as is. If you don't have a fully registeredwindows program, you will have problems until you register it. I've downloaded all service packs and updates for the past 7 years on different levels of windows without any problems. You must have them registered to prove you have an authentic purchased program, not something copied from someone elses setup disks.
When you launch Windows Updates, don't choose the Express Updates but choose Custom. Then when you are presented with Service Pack 3, there is the option to not select it and then choose to continue to see what other updates there are. Personally, I do not recommend Automatic Updates or Express, always do it manually and always select Custom so an unwanted update doesn't get in under the radar and cause further problems. The rule of "if it isn't broken, don't fix it." really goes well with PC's.
