IF THAT DOESN'T WORK...
Here is an alternative solution provided by a customer (JF). Per his instructions, it is a "simple, but a tedious workaround."
"Apparently, the long file names (files names more than 8 characters) are unreadable...so as each error message appeared, I simply renamed the folder or file name to match the file "not found". It was about 20 files and folders to change and took about 15-20 minutes.
"The last fix required me to run the driversetup.exe. After those two fixes. I was good to go."
