Title: Installer Error
Post by: stuwage on October 23, 2004, 11:04:34 pm
I've search the message board and wasn't able to find anyone else with this error.  When I try to start the Windows installer, I get this error:

The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.

I'm running Windows XP, and I know other people with my OS have gotten this to work.  Am I missing something completely obvious?

It says something about spyware (check for spyware first), and something about retrying it a couple of times, to see if it works..

My best bet, is that you've got some spyware... Check for virusses and for spyware, then try the installer again..

I've had the same error and did a scan for spyware but It still doesn't work.

Help? ???

See this thread (http://uqm.stack.nl/forum/index.php?topic=2201.0) and this thread (http://uqm.stack.nl/forum/index.php?topic=1991.0). Sounds like a broken download.
