    Hi,

    The unsuccessfull effort of installing Notepad ++ might have come due to the compatibility factor.

    Possibility is that the program is not compatible to the version of Windows you are having.

    It might also happen because of the Service Packs installed, whichever you have installed SP1 or SP2 might find the incoming program not suitable and blocking the effort.

    Sometimes Antivirus and Firewalls also block external program installation.

    Take note of the situation and act accordingly.

    Thanks.

    1. Exit all programs, and then restart the computer.
    2. After you restart the computer, close or disable any antivirus or antispyware programs that may be running.
      You can disable the programs from the notification area. To do this, right-click the third-party program icon, and then click an option to close or to disable the application. If this option is not available, see the program documentation, or contact the program's manufacturer for instructions.
    3. After you close the antivirus program or the antispyware program, install Windows XP SP3 from the full download package that you downloaded in method 1.
    4. After Windows XP SP3 installation is complete, restart the antivirus program or the antispyware program that you disabled in step 2.
    upgrade registry upgrade...................
    1. Click Start, click Run, type %windir%\svcpack.log, and then click OK. The Svcpack.log file opens.
    2. On the Edit menu, click Find.
    3. In the Find what box, type DoRegistryUpdates failed, and then click Find Next.

      If there was a registry update failure, a "DoRegistryUpdates failed" error message is displayed in the file. This indicates that an issue is preventing the registry update. This error message resembles the following:xxxx.xxx: DoInstallationoRegistryUpdates failed.
      xxxx.xxx: Access is denied.
      xxxx.xxx: Message displayed to the user: Access is denied.


      Note In this message, xxxx.xxx represents the time stamp of each entry.
