16 bit windows subsystem error msg temp file missing???

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.perform_maintain (More info?)

While trying to install/upgrade some software/hardware the following error
message appears:

16 BIT WINDOWS SUBSYSTEM (on a blue background)

(the rest of the message is within the error message window)
C:\Documents and Settings\Me\Local Settings\Temp\
"A temp file needed for initialization could not be created or could not be
written to."

Anyone know what's missing?
Thanks

    Some 16 bit installs under sp2 cannot update Add/Remove
    Programs. Look in readme files in install directory of
    16-bit program They may have you edit some type of ini
    file.
