‘The Required Section Was Not Found in the INF’ Error Message in Windows XP

Filed under: Windows 2000,Windows XP — Rahul Patel @ 4:08 pm

Shortly after plugging in the printer during installation, the following error message displays: The Required Section Was Not found in the INF . It does not matter if the software or hardware is installed first, and uninstalling and reinstalling will not resolve the issue. Clicking the Finish button is the only option. The other components of the installation do finish normally.

NOTE:This document can also resolve some Cannot Find File Specified errors, including ones that do not allow browsing for the missing file.

Product Key not accepted after Integrating SP3 media

Filed under: Windows XP — Rahul Patel @ 11:19 am

The problem arises if the /integrate command is run under Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008. The /integrate process will not report any error and appear to work but if you try to install from the media your product key may not be accepted. Luckily the fix is easy. Run the /integrate command under Windows XP or Windows Server 2003. For more information around this issue
