Advanced INF Install Failure RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am so far very impressed with SteadyState, and I am running into one problem and my research and browsing the threads in this forum have not turned up any answers.

    Whenever the computer powers up, the locked user account logs on automatically and the following error appears:
    Advanced INF Install
    INF Install Failure.  Reason: Access Denied.

    The first thing I did was disable all startup programs in MSCONFIG (except for SteadyState stuff) thinking that it was a startup thing but that didn't help.

    Nothing urgent but annoying nonetheless.  I would appreciate being pointed in the right direction.

    Windows XP Professional SP2.

    Hi, this error is most likely caused by other program instead of SteadyState. You can refer to the following link:


    "Advanced INF install failure. Reason: Access is denied" error message when you install Office 2000



    I suggest you temporarily set the account to Administrator and finish the installation. Then, you can check if the issue still occurs.
