Solved After upgrading to SSD, I cannot install WidC

Specs: Windows XP Professional SP2, Centrino 1.6GHz / 1GB
Hello, today I have upgraded my WinXP Pro Laptop's Parallel-ATA harddisk to a SSD (which is actually a 16GB Compact Flash with a CF-PATA adaptor) and everything's working fine (particularly after I have disabled the Paging File)

But when I try to install the software called "Broadcom Widcomm version bluetooth drivers" or its other version, during the "destination folder" phase, I constantly get this message: "Please select a destination folder on your hard drive" but it's already selected as "C:\Program Files\WIDCOMM\Bluetooth Software\" If I try another simpler folder such as "C:\WIDCOMM\" , no luck, the setup wizard still
asks the same thing.

What could be wrong here?

You don't have a ssd.

Installer is bad or you may be misunderstanding. You can't keep loading on drivers over and over.

If you want, you should be able to select a different folder.

hello and thank you for the comment.

Well, exactly the same installer did work in 2 other WinXP Pro Laptops (with harddisks) and in one of them I can even use the Bluetooth's A2DP feature.

And, yeah I'm able to select a different folder but it doesn't keep installer from asking "Please select a destination folder on your hard drive" and it doesn't go on from that. It's very likely to be about the SSD change, but I might still be misunderstanding the problem.

I've named the CF-PATA setup as SSD for clarity in the title. Believe me it works as a decent SSD, most of the processes work faster and more smoothly than the 5400rpm harddisk.
