    error: unable to upgrade windows installer

    targabuff
      Trying to install Dreamweaver 8 on Windows 2000 PC/SP2. Clicked install button and setup says it needs to upgrade windows installer - hit ok - get error: setup is unable to upgrade windows installer, and quits. Went to MS download site and installed Windows Installer 2 for win2k successfully. Tried installing DW again but got same error. Tried to install in safe mode with installer service running but got same error. Any help or clarification on this error??

          Go to windowsupdate.microsoft.com and make sure you've got the latest
          installer. I think there's a version 3 out there.
