Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
Went to add the fax software that comes with xp, and keep getting "cannot copy file" messages. files are locked, and cannot copy them even as administrator.
This worked for me!
The problem is a corrupted security database. See MS Knowledgebase article 884018 for the explanation. That contains a link to another article (278316) with the method needed to solve it.
You will need to determine the location of your %Temp% folder as part of the process. This page helped me figure that out.
Once I reset the security database, I rebooted and did the fax service install from Control Panel-Add/Remove Programs - Add/Remove Windows Components and it went without a hitch.
