Truecrypt cannot start under Windows 2000

I am having trouble installing Truecrypt on a Windows 2000 server.  The site says windows 2000 is still supported so I am not sure what happened.  I did perform the registry hack to enable 48-bit LBA per suggestion of the program.  I have also tried rebooting as well.

I am getting the following errors which I have tried regular installation and extraction methods.  I have tried 7.0a and 7.1.

 Truecrypt error screen 1
 Truecrypt error screen 2
My goal is for Windows 2000 to access an encrypted truecrypt volume on the network.

Hello bigeven2002,

Looks like the installation of the driver failed. Can you remove the folder c:\program files\TrueCrypt that was installed by setup, create the folder c:\program files\TrueCrypt manually and then run setup again?

A similar issue is described here and was solved by the procedure above.
