Hi

When I try to install the Mac Drivers for windows XP i get and error that says the installer is unable to find cDocum~1\Admin~1\LocalS~1\Temp\_is6\Macintosh Drivers for Windows XP.msi.

I've checked and that file is there. I've tried installing throught the .msi file but it requires a setup.exe to launch the program.

Are you installing from a drivers disc made through bootcamp or some other way?

same here. i'm getting the same problem. I'm trying some different configurations with Boot camp and parallels so I can have Boot in FAT32, link to Boot thru Parallels, and another Parallel NTFS drive for super-huge files. the mac drive install worked the first time i added a non-bootcamp parallels drive. but i erased both partitions and started installing an NTFS Para-drive before putting on the BC-drive. can't find the file, but i'm looking right at it.
what gives??

the funny thing is, I haven't reformatted or anything, I had setup xp a couple of weeks ago. Since then I've gone about my business and I tried to update my sound driver because I got static out of my speakers while playing Flight Simulator. The driver I downloaded and installed didn't work so I tried to reinstall the mac driver but i got the message saying it can't find the .msi file. It's strange. The bottom line is never delete that Driver file that the CD and install creates in your local disk.
QUOTE Thanks
