I tried to install the Large package of MikTex 2.4 on my
new Dell Dimension 8300 running XP Prof SP1. I got the
following error message:
Extracting files from esvect.cab...
Error: The package information file
cannot be written.
Refreshing file name database...
Error: The file name database cannot be created.
Package installation didn't complete.
I have applied all the current critical updates and my
system appears to be virus free.
Previously, I had tried to install the Total package of
MikTex 2.4 on the same OS and got the same error on a
different .cab file.
Surprisingly, I could install MikTex 2.4 on the XP Prof SP1
at work without any problems.
Thanks in advance for your help.
