Post subject:  Trouble installing Zunetheme for windows XP

I am having trouble installing the Zune theme on my Dell with Windows XP.

I have no issues actually downloading the .msi from the winsow url http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=75078 and running it i get the normal Zune desktop Theme setup window. I go to Next and check to accept the agreements. When I actually click install I get an error that says "System cannot open the device of file specified." If i click retry i continue to get this message. If i click cancel I get a follow up message.

"The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2755."

I would really love to install the Zune theme so if someone has any suggestions of how to do this please let me know.

First, I must ask this, is your copy of XP legit?

Second, have you tried downloading here:
http://download.cnet.com/Microsoft-Zune ... 18187.html

Third, if not last, check the MD5 hash on MS which they normally always have it, if not, then check the link I gave. Perform a disk check for errors: @ command prompt: chkdsk /f (The f switch is to automatically check for errors).

Cheers

Go to RUN > type "cmd" (without quotes) > in the command prompt: type "chkdsk /f" (Also w/o quotes.

This will automatically check your C drive for errors or installation problems. If problems persist, then will go further, lets do this one at a time.

Cheers

I had this problem - it was caused by the file being encrypted.

Check the files properties/Advanced...."Encrypt contents to secure data"- if it's checked, un-check it.

Corporate I.T. shops will sometimes setup your system to automatically encrypt any file placed under your home directory. Try downloading the file to a directory that is not under your home directory.
