Installer fails on mpm.exe

  • I'm trying to install 2.9 on a Windows XP Pro SP3 system. The basic installer
    fails repeatedly on a file named mpm.exe.

    An error occurred:
    source file: Libraries\MiKTeX\Core\Process.cpp
    source line: 296
    message: The operation failed for some reason.
    info: C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex/bin\mpm.exe

    Any ideas what's up?
