Missing or corrupted DxSetup.exe

    I have a Missing or corrupted DxSetup.exe problem...

    [​IMG]

    ....and I recall seeing this same error message once, perhaps twice in the 2
    or 3 months. <_<

    This same DxSetup.exe error message occurred when I was attempting to
    install non-essential software programs. And when the (above) error message
    window popped up, I chose to terminate the installation and delete the
    non-essential software program.

    Currently, this DxSetup.exe error message occurs when I try to
    install Intel's Network Adapter Drivers 15.4.1 for Windows XP.

    Back on 2010 April 29, I successfully installed Intel's Network Adapter
    Drivers 15.2 for Windows XP
    , and did not have any problems - in other
    words, I did not experience this DxSetup.exe error message.

    My operating system is Windows XP SP3, 32-bit, up to date via Windows
    Update, with the exception of Microsoft's Malicious Removal Tools, and
    Internet Explorer 7 or 8. I have never allowed Windows Update to install any
    Malicious Removal Tool, and because I only use Internet Explorer for Windows
    Updates (my primary browser is Firefox 3.6 including its latest version and
    updates), I find no value nor interest to upgrade to Internet Explorer 7 or
    8.

    According to Add or Remove Programs, I have the following Microsoft .NET
    Frameworks installed...

    1.1 - v1.1.4322
    2.0 Service Pack 2 - v2.0.50727
    3.0 Service Pack 2
    3.5 Service Pack 1

    ....which is confirmed by ASoft .NET Version Detector 2007 as follows:

    Upon reviewing the respective install LOG files...

    [​IMG]

    ....I found no apparent error messages.

    The file dd_dotnetfx3error.txt is empty - and searching for the word
    "error" in the dd_dotnetfx3install.txt file, produces only one
    reference...

    [04/25/09,00:23:40] Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0:
    CRootComponent::Install(): MSIInstallProduct returned
    ERROR_SUCCESS.


    The file dd_dotnetfx35error.txt is empty - and searching for the word
    "error" in the dd_dotnetfx35install.txt file, produces the
    following references...

    [04/25/09,20:08:14] Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1:
    CRootComponent::Install(): MSIInstallProduct returned ERROR_SUCCESS.

    To ensure my Registry is not effected by any new program installation, I
    typically back it up prior to the install. However, because I install or
    updated software several times each week, once the new or updated program
    appears to work as described, I generally delete the Registry backup file.
    This may seem severe, but once I install a new program or update, the
    previous Registry backup become moot. Moot because it has no value since
    restoring it also removes any newer Registry entries, updates, etc.

    I am running Windows Installer 4.5 and have not experienced any
    problems with it.

    I manually update Windows XP by visiting the Windows Update website once a
    week, and utilize the CUSTOM option to check for Windows XP updates.

    For non-Windows operating system software, I visit other websites like
    MajorGeeks and FileHippo. I try to download new software direct from the
    author's website(s) whenever possible.

    When available, I generally update my DirectX files. Recently, I installed
    DirectX June 2010 Redistributable (with filename directx_Jun2010_redist.exe).
    As with all previous versions, I extracted this file a temp directory,
    F:/DirectX_Install. Once extracted, I executed DXSETUP.EXE to install the
    DirectX update. Once complete, I typically leave the Application,
    Application Extensions and Cabinet Files, in place until the next DirectX
    Redistributable is released - and when it is, I delete all files in
    F:/DirectX_Install before executing the new DXSETUP.EXE application file.

    While I have executed the DirectX Redistributable DXSETUP.EXE application
    file several time in the last 2 to 3 years (concurrent with the respective
    DirectX Redistributable release), I have never looked for the DxSetup.exe
    file elsewhere on my HDD. Therefore, I have no idea where it is supposed to
    be located. I read one (confusing website's) expert suggest that it is
    located in the C:/WINDOWS\System32 directory. When I looked, it was not
    there - so I copied the latest DXSETUP.EXE file to it. Unfortunately, it did
    not correct or resolve the problem - the problem remains.

    I am running DirectX 9.0c, and ran the DirectX Diagnostic Tool and no
    problems were found.

    [​IMG]

    Note that I removed Computer Name and
    Page file - their info is irrelevant, in my
    opinion.

    I do have a DirectX directory, that I believe was created with the
    initial install of Windows XP SP2 that came with my Dell. This directory,
    C:/WINDOWS\system32\DirectX, is empty of files. However, there is a
    Dinput subdirectory, C:/WINDOWS\system32\DirectX\Dinput, that contains
    33 Configuration Settings files, and 147 PNG Image files.

    Regarding anti-virus programs, I run Avira AntiVir
    9.0.0.422
    - where I run Avira AntiVir Guard to
    protect my system from real-time virus and adware/malware problems. I
    manually update the definition files at least twice daily.

    Regarding adware/malware problems, as a redundant program to Avira, I also
    have Ad-Aware AE installed - though in a passive mode
    only. In other words, Lavasoft Ad-Aware Service is
    disabled when Ad-Aware AE is not being run - with its
    Real-time Protection off. In addition, the
    Ad-Watch option is also disabled. In short, I rely on
    Avira for adware/malware protection and use
    Ad-Aware to manually scan my system one, maybe twice a
    week.

    I do not schedule any software updates, and always disable the automatic
    update option or preference.

    After running both Avira and
    Ad-Aware, my system appears to be free of viruses and
    adware/malware.

    To supplement my investigation, I ran HijackThis and
    it generated the following LOG file...

    Carefully following the direction of Marc Liron, Microsoft MVP 2010,
    as detailed here...
    http://www.updatexp.com/scannow-sfc.html
    ....I executed sfc /scannow, but it did not resolve the Missing or
    corrupted DxSetup.exe
    problem. Hopefully, it did not create other
    problems.

    It do not know if it has any relevance, but I recently removed Microsoft
    Messenger
    (entirely) from my system. Having never used it, it's
    Service was disabled, and it's option in Outlook Express had
    been removed, for over 2 years,

    Other than reinstalling my operating system, anyone have a solution or
    suggestions of how I can resolve this Missing or corrupted DxSetup.exe
    problem?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thank you for your reply, support and links, Donald. :eek:)

    I have been using 3 or 4 of them for the last 2 years.

    I have never used the Driver Update Utility, and was surprised by the
    results. Surprised because the Intel system read my PC as a Windows 2003
    Server, and the driver it recommended was EXACTLY the same one I had
    downloaded. Nevertheless, I downloaded it again and used the extraction
    without installation process to view the of directories and files associated
    with this driver.

    I have additional investigation to pursue and will update you once I have
    resolved this problem.

    Thanks again!!

    Hello again, Donald.

    Well . . . I decided to CHANCE using Intel's Driver Update Utility.

    Even though this Utility incorrectly ID'd my operating system as Windows
    2003 Server, the Driver associated with the download had the same Digital
    Signature as the 15.4.1 version that I had download for Windows XP Home.

    I proceeded with the Intel Driver Update Utility and downloaded the Version
    15.4.1 PROWin32.exe file.

    After the download was complete, I reviewed the online Read Me (htm) file
    [http://downloadmirror.intel.com/18717/eng/readme.htm] before executing the
    PROWin32.exe install. Having never extracted Intel files without installing
    them, I chose to employ the /f parameter and specified the destination path.

    Believing the /f parameter would function as it is described - Extracting
    the Files Without Installing - I anticipated reviewing the files before
    executing an install. Unfortunately, though not completely unfortunate, this
    is not how the process went. In short, with the /f parameter incorporated
    precisely as defined by Intel, the Windows 2003 Server PROWin32.exe began
    installing in the same manner I have witness several times in the last 2 or
    so years. So, I just went with the flow.

    Once the install appeared complete, I checked the path location that I had
    specified after the /f parameter, and there it was, a new directory named
    Intel 82562 based Network Controller. This directory has five File Folders,
    two Rich Text Format files, and a TIC File. I opened each of the File
    Folders, which include a Win32 subdirectory, as well as other subdirectories.
    And in the \Intel 82562 based Network Controller\APPS\PROSETDX\Win32
    directory, I found the DxSetup.exe Application and Configuration Settings
    files, as well as the PROSETDX.msi Windows Installer Package. As you may
    guess, I was now smiling W-I-D-E-L-Y.

    Next, I proceeded to open Device Manager and check the version of the new
    install, and there it was . . . Intel PROSet Version 15.4.98.0 . . . not
    Version 15.4.1 that I was expecting, but that wouldn't be the first time a
    manufacture mis-labeled or did not properly identify its drivers or files.
    Oddly, the 15.4.89 release has the same Intel 82562 10/100 Network Connection
    Driver, 9.13.41.0, as the 15.2 release. Obviously, Intel was updating issues
    other than this driver. Then I ran the various Intel Diagnostics on the
    Connection, Cable and Hardware - all passed, so I rebooted, went back online,
    and proceeded to this newsgroup to inform you, and another fine gentleman
    named Peter whom also provided his support, of the results.

    There must be something WRONG with the PROWin32.exe file (a file I
    downloaded more than once, to insure the one on my HDD was not corrupt or
    otherwise defective) that downloads when Windows XP Home Edition is selected
    here . . .
    http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Sea...roduct=Intel®+82562+Fast+Ethernet+Controllers
    because, as I said above, it has the same Digital Signature as the 15.4.1
    version recommended by the Intel Driver Update Utility that ID's my operating
    system as Windows 2003 Server.

    Many thanks for your support, Donald, I could not have accomplished this
    without you.
