- Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition
This article was previously published under Q248643
When you attempt to upgrade your computer from Microsoft Windows 3.x to Windows Millennium Edition (Me), you may receive the following error message:
To work around this issue, install the complete version of Windows Me in a new folder.
This behavior is by design.
This workaround is only valid if you have the full version of Windows Me. The upgrade version of Windows Me searches for Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows 98, or Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition to confirm eligibility for the upgrade.
It is not necessary to install Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows 98 Second Edition to use the Windows Me upgrade; to do so, you simply need to insert the floppy disk or CD-ROM of either Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows 98 Second Edition, during the Windows Me Setup.
