You have not filled in your computer specs: hard drive size, RAM etc. How large is your page file and how much room is left on your hard drive?

All I can say is I have not had trouble with the tool on my computer, which is over 5 yrs old. Either the file was corrupted on the download or I can only assume the error is correct and you have insufficient space or paging.

Hard drive 1 TB 277 GB free
Ram 3 GB
Page file 4 GB

It runs on virtual win 7 on my vista with a 1GB page file so the corrupt cab must be on the computer. It is a three year old PC little used - recent fresh install of win7

Thanks

Have you tried downloading the USB tool again?

You seem to have a lot of problems with the ISO and now the USB tool. I can only assume there is something unusual about your computer, maybe a hard drive going bad and corrupting the files?

Are all exes? No most programs are not self-extracting cab files.

Right click on the USB tool exe and choose "run as administrator", see if that helps?

Ok windows resource protection says did not find any integrity violation. Run as admin no difference

the windows patches are arent they? I could get a patch for manual installation see if it opens?
