I have been trying without success for 2 days to install the tr
ial version of Flash Builder 4 but cannot get past the following erro
r - displayed affter launching the Set-up.exe in the Adobe flash Builder 4 Standalone folder.
The following information is showing the PDApp.log file:

I am running XP service pack 2.
I have installed and continue to use Flex Builder 3.
Also running fully licensed copies of MS Vis Sudio 2005 and 2008, Adobe Master Collection CS4 and CS3; also trial version of WebOrb - all of which are working fine.
I have been running the setup/install using an account with admin rights
I have tried installing after booting up in Safe mode - doesn't help
I have confirmed that my account has full control over all the folders/files in the installation package
I have tried the install with virus protection turned off, and have tried right click>Run As> Current user - with "Protect my computer..." unchecked.
I suspect that I am either missing a dll or a dll needs to be registered - most likely the one required for opening and parsing the setup.xml file shown in the error log above, however, I have no idea which dll(s) are implicated.
Any help will be very gratefully received!
