    Need your help: Setup.LST error

    I copied a set of VB packaged installation files onto another folder. When i executed the SETUP.EXE, i received an error message saying 'Could not open the file named:SETUP.LST' followed by another error 'The SETUP.LST file could not be copied - Setup cannot continue.

    thanks,
    manny

    "Could not be copied" normally means the file is locked by another application, you don't have access to the source or destination, the destination has a copy that can't be deleted, the file's damaged or something along those lines.
    The most difficult part of developing a program is understanding the problem.
    The second most difficult part is deciding how you're going to solve the problem.
    Actually writing the program (translating your solution into some computer language) is the easiest part.

    Please indent your code and use [HIGHLIGHT="VB"] [/HIGHLIGHT] tags around it to make it easier to read.
