“Setup cannot copy the file staxmem.dll” error when installing IIS on XP

When I tried to install IIS on my laptop which is running Windows XP Pro SP2, I got this error during the installtion:

“Copy error
Setup cannot copy the file staxmem.dl_.

Ensure that the disk labeled ‘Windows XP Professional Service pack 2 CD’ is in the drive selected below, or provide the location where the file can be found.”

After some search on the Internet, it turned out it is a very common error that people encountered when installing the IIS componet on XP. Microsoft has a Help and Support article for fixing this error: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555268.
