SYMPTOMS

When you attempt to install Microsoft Works 2000 or Microsoft Works Suite 2000, you may receive the following error message:

Setup could not retrieve the Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 results.

CAUSE

This behavior can occur if any of the following conditions are true:

  • There is not enough available space on your hard disk to install Works 2000 or Works Suite 2000 and Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.
  • An error occured during the installation process.


RESOLUTION

To resolve this issue, use the following methods in the order in which they are presented.

Verify that Sufficient Space is Available on the Hard Disk

To do this:

  1. On the desktop, double-click My Computer.
  2. Right-click the hard disk that you want to check, and then click Properties.
  3. On the Free space line, note the amount of available space on the hard disk.
  4. Click OK.

To install Works 2000 on a computer on which Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 is installed, you need 120 megabytes (MB) of available hard disk space.

To install Works Suite 2000 on a computer on which Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 is installed, you need 785 MB of available hard disk space (1.4 gigabytes (GB) for a complete installation).

To install Works 2000 or Works 2000 Suite on a computer on which Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 is not installed, you need an additional 78 MB of available space on the hard disk on which Microsoft Windows is installed.

NOTE: Microsoft recommends an additional 50 MB of available hard disk space for the Windows swap file.

If insufficient hard disk space is available on your computer, increase the amount of available hard disk space. To do this:

  1. On the desktop, right-click Recycle Bin, and then click Empty Recycle Bin. If you are prompted to confirm the file deletion, click Yes.
  2. Back up and then remove any files on the hard disk that you do not use frequently.


For information about how to back up your files, click Start, and then click Help. On the Index tab, type backing, and then double-click the Backing up files or Backing up files, folders topic.

  1. Delete any unnecessary files on the hard disk.


For information about how to delete files, click Start, and then click Help. On the Index tab, type deleting, and then double-click the Deleting files or folders or Deleting files, folders topic.
