Hello,
I have a Dell Latitude D820, XP pro, Office 2007. I am getting 2503 and 2502 errors when I try to install some programs and I am not able to install MS office updates and Adobe reader updates.

The specific errors are:
Error 2503 Called Runscript when not marked in progress
Error 2502 Called Install when no install is in progress

Any ideas?
