Re: Cant Install IE8 on XP Pro SP3
I had the same problem and was able to fix it by reinstalling SP3. I also disabled antivirus. After SP3 was installed, then IE8 installed. Then run windows update to pick up any updates that the SP3 clobbered.
One indicator of the problem was the running winver showed that I had Build 2600.xpsp_sp2_....07....:Service Pack 3.
After reinstalling SP3, the winver shows Build 2600.xpsp_sp3_....0804....:Service Pack 3. The build number/date also changed after the rest of the updates installed, so my final version is:
Build 2600:xpsp_sp3_gdr.080814-1236 : Service Pack 3.
Be warned that the SP and other updates were over 500MB download.
