Canceling Setup During File Copy Process Continues to Copy Files over LAN Connection

If you start Setup from a network share and you click End Task to cancel the Windows Millennium Edition (Me) Setup while the file is being copied, Setup still creates the Install folder (Windows\Options\Install) and the Windows Me cabinet files on the destination drive. This occurs despite the fact that you canceled the Windows Me Setup.


This problem occurs because Setupx.dll queued the files for "file copy" and is copying the files when all instances of the "Windows Millennium Edition Setup" task are being canceled.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.


To end the task for Windows Me Setup, press CTRL+ALT+DEL and, in the Close Program window, select each instance of "Windows Millennium Edition Setup" one at a time, and then click End Task or press ALT+E.
