I installed Delphi 2007 on Windows XP SP2 and then tried to install Update 1
and it failed.
I am trying to reinstall it and I get "Error Code 2908".
I tried to remove the RAD Studio in the Control Panel and I am getting this
error message: Setup resource not found.

    Did you unistall any othe version of RAD studio reboot and  try again? Also are you installing a trial version? If trial it might just have expired.

    Try Uninstalling Delphi and before re-installing it ....

    Goto the Registry and remove this key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Borland\BDS\5.0

    Then try installing it again.

    I had the same problem...

    I deleted the entire installation folder from
    C:\Documents and Settings\<YOUR USERNAME>\Local Settings\Application Data\{2EB4C530-C94F-4893-ABDC-C1E05A89956E}\

    After this, the installation run without problems
