Cab Files Treated as Folders

XP treats Cab files like folders, to stop this type regsvr32 /u cabview.dll
at the command prompt (Start/Run/CMD)
To reverse it type regsvr32 cabview.dll.

Cab Files Install and Relocate

1. Insert your windows XP CD.
2. Click on, Perform Additional Tasks.
3. Click on, Browse this CD.
4. Look for the I386 folder, right click on the folder and copy.
5. Get into, My Computer and create a unique folder.
6. Right click on your new folder and paste.

Then alter the source path: Start/Run/Regedit

In the right pane, double click SourcePath and type in exactly, the path to
where the cab files can be found. (The folder to where the cab files have been
copied to). Registry, exit.
