Installing Sierra Wireless Aircard 890

I keep getting an access is denied error when trying to update the drivers to get this aircard working.  I'm using windows xp. I checked permissions on everything to make sure admin had full rights.  I also did a repair from the repair cd just to try.

run ProcMon (probably using RunAs/[local admin user account], so that it has access to everything) as you start the application. That will show you any missing files/folders and registry entries (entries will show 'NAME NOT FOUND' in the 'Result' column) or permissioning problems (ACCESS DENIED).

Remember to filter out stuff you're not interested in e.g. Explorer.EXE, Svchost.EXE and so on

This should reveal any locked folders/sub-folders/registry keys that are trying to be accessed but is being denied. Get procmon here:
