There are several posssible causes for this...try the following first.

Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer.

Open the following folder: C:\Program Files\InstallShield\Developer\Redist\Language Independent\i386.

Double-click Isscrpt.msi.

Follow the instructions that appear on the screen.

Does this reinstall the InstallShield or does it error, as well?

That's the usual suspects...

Click Start, then Run, type services.msc and click "Ok".

Locate and double click on Windows Installer.

What is the value listed in the "Startup Type:" field?

Empty user and system "temp" folders.

Click Start, then Run, type %systemdrive%\temp and click "Ok". Click on "Edit" on the toolbar and choose "Select All"...press the "Delete" key and accept the change.

Click Start, then Run, type %systemdrive%\%windir%\temp and click "Ok". Click on "Edit" on the toolbar and choose "Select All"...press the "Delete" key and accept the change.

Click Start, then Run, type %systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Temp and click "Ok". Click on "Edit" on the toolbar and choose "Select All"...press the "Delete" key and accept the change.


Click Start, then Run, type prefetch and click "Ok". Click on "Edit" on the toolbar and choose "Select All"...press the "Delete" key and accept the change.

You can copy and past the commands in blue into the run box to reduce the chance of error.

Reboot and try to install...
