Question about Sony Ericsson P990i Cellular Phone

3 Answers

"Installation aborted " error message.


I bought this Sony Ericsson P990i, 3 months back. I have a big problem installing software and applications on my phone, whenever I try to download any software or even a theme for that matter it gives me a lot of error messages and Installation Aborted is one of them. I have an XP service pack 2 and the connection is also fine but I really don't understand what happens to the download even before the installation reaches its 90 percentile mark. I request you to kindly advice my on this and help me coz with downloading anything on my phone its merely a piece of shit..Waiting for your response.

    This is Constantine1 again, I really want to thank you for your kind effort to solve my problem. I did try the solution you have provided but to my dismay it doesn't work. I still get the same Installation aborted message, I am sick and tired of this message now. I tried everything possible that a non-tech guy could but it still keeps disappointing me. My friends say that I should've bought a Nokia phone as its very easy to use and doesn't give complicated error messages, but I am a Sonyericsson fan and didn't wanted to buy Nokia. I request someone to please help me with an appropriate solution and I'll ever remain thankful to you.

P990i, not recognized by the pc is the result of compatibility issues of hardware and software used.The support items won't correct or solve the problem because the solution is problematic too.
