I get an error message when I try to install Resume Manager. It tells me that it can't find the file instmsia.exe or instmsiw.exe. What does this mean?

Microsoft updated their installation program after they released Windows 98. Our software requires that you have the updated installer. We do not include it in the download, because the installer increases the size of the download. Also, most users have already installed the latest Windows installer.

If you get this error message, you can download a free upgrade file, and run it to update your Windows installer. Then, run the Resume Manager Installer again and it should work properly.

You can read more about the installer at the Microsoft web site:

You can click one of the following links for a 1.4 Mb download. PLEASE NOTE: Microsoft creates the following software. Sarm Software cannot guarantee the software effectiveness or compatibility with your computer.

If you have Windows 95/98/ME, download:

If you have Windows NT 4.x download:

After downloading, run the program. Then run the Resume Manager installer a second time.
