In the process of installing WXP Pro I had to let the installer "ignore" the following files because the installer said it was unable to copy them:

netfx.cab
tabletpc.cab
mediactr.cab

So far there does not seem to be any problem yet but I wonder what are
these for. My pc is neither tablet pc nor media centre pc. Can anyone
shed light on the above?

Used for installing .NET Framework and Media Center, as you alluded to.

I searched in the CDROM and found none of those three files. Is the error message legitimate or phony? What causes the installer to issue such error message?

I used the same CDROM to install WXP to this pc more than once before and did not see this problem. I tried installing WXP using the same CDROM to a different PC for an experiment and found no such problem.

look at your dosnet.inf for the locations of those files
and check your cd if u have those directories and files..

Ihanks for your response.

I found tabletpc.ca_, and mediactr.ca_ but not netfx.ca_. Instead there are netfxocm.dl_ and netfxocm.in_. Then what does this means?
