With the information you provide we can only guess.  Phrases like 
"I always get an error somewhere in the process..." are not very
helpful.  Many error messages on Windows are indeed incomprehensible.
But if you don't understand them yourself, please post them to the
list.  For the Windows experts on the mailing list, they *are* helpful.
