So, once you know what the error message means it seems obvious, but it
wasn't obvious to me!
Actually in my case that would be desirable since I would prefer to
install from the disk than run up usage on my limited Wildblue satellite
service. However I think of PUP as an update application and updates
don't come via CD/DVD. It would work if I left something off the
original install that is on the disk ...
Thanks to all.
