I get this error when I try to install windows xp sp 2:

setup cannot copy the file ocmsn.dll

A window pops up allowing me to browse to locate the .dll file. I have
checked that ocmsn.dll is in the location specified. Clicking retry leads to
a repeat of the same error. Clicking cancel leads to a failure of the
installation. I have tried several times tro install xp sp 2 and have had the
same problem with different .dll files.

I have the CD and while the file name and size is slightly different by a
few bytes from the network self-install file it is essentially the same full
file. I'll have to see if I can find my CD to compare how much filesize
difference.

Having now compared my SP 2 disk with the network administrators install
downloaded file I see they are exactly the same...the CD has a cabinet file
the exact same size with an earlier August creation date whereas the network
install is the exact same size in an .exe file. The CD has some perks like a
NewDotNet fix, but essentially the main SP2 installation files are the same.

Thanks for doing that. So, it seems I can use the CD ok, without losing
anything, but gaining speed and any possible connection problems.
