    Hello friend,

    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say.........

    1.This was the problem of the OS files.

    2.They may be deleted accidentally.

    3.So you insert the OS Cd in your system and then restart it.

    4.While restarting press key.

    5.This will take you to the installation wizard.

    6.There you click 'R' to repair your OS files.

    Have a nice day............

    Cabinet file or files with .cab extensions are of immense importance to a system installer.

    Those files contains vital data relating the software that is installed, and saved in copressed mode, missing which there will be no data for the software.

    First of all check the to be installed software, wheather its file system is intact or corrupt, as media corruption will make the software corrupt and some cabinate files damaged or missing.

    Insert the Windows Installer CD into the optical drive, boot from it , click Install Now, input a few details and finally select Repair....., the windows will correct itself and after finishing prompt you to remove the disk and boot normally. Do that and then try installing the softwares.

    Hi dear Aspirant

    First thing you have to do is check whether the system is Run in the compatibility mode or not

    If it is not in the compatibility mode you can go through the following steps

    -->Right click on the Program in which you want to run in compatibility mode

    -->Their you will find "properties " and then Go to click on "compatibility mode "

    -->Then finally click on the "Run the programs in compatibility mode"

    -->Choose to select "Yes " to make save changes

    If the problem remains there you can perform the "System file checker" (SFC) Scan to your system

    For this "start " -->All programs -->Accessories -->Right click on Administrator

    Then in the command prompt type " sfc/scannow" and finally click on "Save "

    It will completely eliminates the issue

    That is al
