DB2 Connect Server 9.1 installation issues

I've received following errors during the DB2 9.1 Fixpack7 installation on Windows 2003 Ent server. I’ve used local user account db2admin, (member of admin group) . What causes these issues? Any ideas?

no. the local admin account is disabled, but my account is a member of local admin group. I also have tried using SYSTEM account during the installation and I still get the same errors. I tried uninstalling clean and reinstalling few times with no luck. thanks for your response.
did you have such problems when trying to install older fixpacks?
I've not tried older fixpacks/versions, should I?
