When I try to open the windows components tab in add\remove, I get the following error message:

Setup was unable to open information file wmaccess.inf. Contact your system headministrator. The specific error code is 0xe0000003 at line 0.

Same thing happens when I try the setup CD. I'm running SP2 RC1.

wmaccess.inf - this file should be in your %WINDIR%\inf\ folder.

The file is corrupted like Wasim said or simply not there.

To resolve your problem...

1) Take your SP2 RC1 and extract the files

XPSP2.EXE –x:C:\SP2RC1

2) Locate wmaccess.in_ and decompress

EXPAND -r wmaccess.in_

3) Put it back to the inf folder

This problem should be solved

I copied the wmaccess.inf from windows\service pack files\I386. Then I got the same message, but for wmpcoem.inf. Did the same for that file.

Now, when I go to add\rem windows components, I don't get the component tree. It goes directly to "setup is inspecting your configuration and installing the components you selected".

And I still can't access the list. :)

The last tips I can give you is to download SP2 RC2 and install. But I know there's new bugs about Windows Components with this new service pack. If it don't work I'm out of ideas.

Good luck
