Are you installing to the C:/Program Files folder, or somewhere else?

How far into the installer do you get the message?

Have you updated your XP machine with latest Windows Update updates?

I had heaps of dramas updating from VW Landmark to VW Landmark Renderworks with the 12.5 online updater. I had to edit the Windows registry and remove VW from there. I could not uninstall from Control Panel/Add Remove programs because VW was not there. I got around it but it took about 3 hours in the end and lots of Ggggrrr.
