ANCDUBAI,

also i have heard of terminal services being installed can cause this issue - just a comment i noticed on a forum, they removed terminal services and all was solved

Do you have a file or folder named "Program" in C:\, or a file or folder named "Update" in C:\Program Files\?
If so, check where they came from, and remove/rename them if possible, then try again.

Hip hip hurray. Thanx a ton oBdA. There was a file called program on c:\. I simply deleted the same and the setup went through like a charm. This is great.

Thanks once again
