Tried to set a locally saved picture as the wallpaper on my parents new
emachines desktop 'puter. It wanted to install MS PhotoGallery and required
the XP disc with the photogallery.msi file on it. Unfortunately, emachines
does not provide OS setup discs with their computers and now every time we
start the machine, it continues to try and install PhotoGallery using the
photogallery.msi file. In fact, you have to cancel out of this about 4-5
times before it gives up. Is there anyway to kill this process, permanently?
I cannot get XP setup discs from the computer manufacturer.

Many thanks in advance,

Hello,

I have just had a similar experience and found that the file in
question was on my HP printer installation disc. I inserted the disc
into the drive on bootup, windows installer found the file and the
problem was solved.

Regards.

I have the same issue. I put in the installation disc and still no
luck. Here is the message I now get.

The file C:temp\PhotoGallery.msi is not a valid installation package
for the product PhotoGallery. Try to find the installation package
’PhotoGallary’ from a folder in which you can install PhotoGallery
