I have a laptop that I use at home and it is running on Windows XP operating system. I changed the OS as initially I was on Windows 7, so I downgraded and installed all the drivers including the network drivers.
However, when installing the Intel network driver, I experienced an error message that popped-up as shown below. What does this mean?
Intel® Network Connections:
Installation failed. Missing or corrupted DxSetup.exe.
Intel (R) network connections failed installation error
The problem here could be that the drivers that you are trying to install are not compatible with the system specifications of your computer or the XP that you are using. So I advice you to check the model of your computer and go online and see which drivers it supports, instead of downloading the wrong ones.
For instance a computer, HP Compaq 610 will not work with all HP drivers but it has its specified drivers that it can support and therefore, installing on it say drivers for a DELL machine will bring a problem.
Alternatively, just go to the driver in the device manager and right click on it and choose the option to update the driver online. The driver will be sought from the Internet and automatically installed.
Hope this helps.
