where did you download XP from?
That, "README.TXT, [#] REMOVED WINDOWS XP COMPONENTS" suggests this is some cracked version to me.
I have downloaded and installed MS Windows XP Professional 5.1 (SP3) but it lacks Outlook Express. In a file README.TXT, and under the heading '[#] REMOVED WINDOWS XP COMPONENTS (Nothing has been removed that could cause System Problems or any Problems with other Sofware Applications)', there is listed the following (it is an unattended edition):
* Applications: Address Book, Games, Internet Games, Paint, Pinball, WordPad.
* Old Drivers: Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM), Display Adapters, Ethernet (LAN), IBM PS/2 TrackPoint, IBM ThinkPad, ISDN, Logitech WingMan, Microsoft SideWinder, Modems, Multifunctional, Portable Audio, Printers, Scanners, Serial Pen Tablet, Sony Jog Dial, Sound Controllers, Toshiba DVD decoder card, Wireless Ethernet (WLAN).
* Multimedia: Images and Backgrounds, Movie Maker, Music Samples, Old CDPlayer and Sound Recorder.
* Network: Communication tools, FrontPage Extensions, Internet Information Services (IIS), MSN Explorer, Netmeeting, Outlook Express, Windows Messenger.
* Operating System Options: Blaster/Nachi removal tool, Desktop Cleanup Wizard, Out of Box Experience (OOBE), Security Center, Tour, Zip Folders.
As you can see, under the heading 'Network', it lists Outlook Express. How could I do to get Outlook Express or an equivalent program? Thank you for reading and regards.
