    Trying to install XP SP3, and got the same message
    “setup cannot copy the file helpsvc.exe – Ensure that the location specified below is correct ( c:\windows\pchealth\helpctr\binaries ), or change it and insert ‘Windows XP System Files’ in the drive you specify.”

    I have no idea what this means or what I should do….you casually say “Download the patch from Microsoft Download Center”…. but WHAT patch?

    • I was referring to the patch that this post is about – KB2229535
      You could try downloading XP SP3 and use the same workaround. I can’t guarantee that it’ll work though.
