Cause

This problem may occur if there is a significant load on the computer when you start Setup. For example, the problem may occur if it takes longer than five seconds for Setup to start.

Resolution

You can safely ignore these errors. The errors do not indicate that there is a problem with Setup or with the computer. Setup will continue correctly.

Workaround

To work around this problem, close all nonessential programs that are running on the computer before you start Setup for the .NET Framework version 1.1 SP1 or for the .NET Framework version 1.0 SP3.

Note If this problem occurs when you use the OEM recovery media to install Windows XP or Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, restart the installation.

Status

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
