When the installation routine is unable to find the necessary installation
files (even when directed to the appropriate i386 Folder) it usually means
that the installation files are compressed. This is often the case when the
files are pre-copied by a manufacturer on the hard drive. If you do a search
for the files that the installation routine claims are missing (fxsapi.dll
or fxcfgwz.dll, for example) you won't find them, but you will find
fxsapi.dl_ and fxcfgwz.dl_ (notice the underscore). These are compressed DLL
files and will need to be decompressed. Double click on them and you will
get a prompt for the file to use to open them. Click on BROWSE. and select
Win32 Cabinet Self-Extractor, which is in the system folder. With any luck
it will uncompress them all and make them visible as DLL files. The install
routine still may not find these files. If so, then you must manually direct
the installation routine to the i386 folder that contains these extracted
files.
