Have you tried installing the program in folder without spaces in path?

No. The name of the folder is "WinXP SP3 OneNote Slim". I'll try installing again with a renamed folder "WinXP_SP3_OneNote_Slim". I think that's the cause of the error. Thankyou.

I meant WinSetupFromUSB directory.

C:\WinSetupFromUSB 0.2.3 -->C:\WinSetupFromUSB

The name of my folder is C:\WinSetupFromUSB 0.2.3 . There is a space between B and 0.

Well, how to say it any clearer?! :blink:

Put WinSetupFromUSB program in a directory, which do NOT contain spaces in its path, as you did, in "C:\WinSetupFromUSB 0.2.3".

In other words- RENAME "WinSetupFromUSB 0.2.3" to "WinSetupFromUSB", or "WinSetup", or "WS" or whatever, but WITHOUT spaces in name. Do NOT put ANY spaces or special characters in name.

I'll try again soon.

Thankyou.
