DEP.EXE will be deleted under XP

03/29/2006 07:00 am
I can install DE 1.3 build 199 whitout any problems.
And it works fine, when I work with directly after installation.
But next time system reboots, dep.exe always will be deleted!
When I install again, dep.exe exists in C:\WINDOWS\system32\MetaProducts until I reboot again and so on.
I install always as admin.
My IE-Version: 6.0.2600.0000 xpclnt_qfe.010827-1803, Update: Q321232
Please help ...

It seems that you didn`t reboot windows when it asks you on the previous DE uninstallation.
On uninstallation DE asks Windows to remove DEP.EXE on the next reboot (if it cannot remove it itself). You install the new version, reboot Windows and it removes DEP.EXE.

Please reboot Windows before the DE installation, install it, then reboot it again and check for DEP.exe. Please write about result to
