Update.exe errors on trying to install Win XP Service Pack 2

Last Modified: 2013-11-14
I have tried installing Windows XP Service Pack 2 both by download and from the Microsoft SP2 CD. In both cases I get the following string of errors generated. The installation gets through to a point where it reports "Performing Clean Up". At this point it stops with the following errors/messages:
AppName: update.exe
ModVer: 5.1.2600.2180
AppVer: 5.5.1005.0
Offset: 000029116

How can I get the installation to complete?
