What type of processor? IS it SSE3 caompatible?
If so; try creating a new user account in XP (an admin account) and try installing under that account. If it works its an os problem.
The processor is a Pentium 4D, so yes it is SSE3 compatible. I tried creating an Administrator2 account and installing from there. Same result. Grrrr.
