Can't upgrade from ie6 to ie8. have tried several fixes from ms website already.

This is the error I keep getting: "An error occurred while copying file inetcorp.iem. Cannot copy file to destination directory."

Had the same problem on WinXP Home Russian SP3 during ie6 to ie8 upgrade: "Не удается скопировать inetcorp.iem".

Googled this article, opened Start - Run - ie8.log

139.109: Скопирован файл: c:\WINDOWS\inf\IEM\0419\inetcorp.iem  - was the last entry.

I went to the folder C:\WINDOWS\INF and found a file named IEM. The installer most likely failed to create the folder IEM and showed the error.

So I simply deleted the IEM file, and clicked Retry on the error window. All OK.

Did this solve your problem?
