setup.exe fails

Mon Feb 14 18:26:00 GMT 2005

Hello Brian,

Thank you for your reply.

Following your hints I:
- stopped & deactivated sshd service in Control Panel
- started setup.exe
- changed from Keep to Reinstall for all components
and setup.exe worked as expected.
Eventually I activated & started the sshd service in Control Panel.

Once again thank you very for your prompt & accurate reponse.
