Solved 1628: Failed to Complete Installation

August 31, 2011 at 16:08:20
Specs: Windows XP Pro (SP3) 32-bit v2002, Core 2 @ 1.66 / 512MB Ram
I'm attempting to run a setup program that configures my computer for network use with an archival software called TextWorks v13 by Inmagic.

When I run the setup launcher it gives me the "preparing to install" message with a progress bar. Once it seems to finish the following error message pops up:
"1628: failed to complete installation"

Here are all of the steps I've tried to remedy the situation:

- Installed latest Windows Updates
- End running process' idriver.exe, msiexec.exe
- Updated windows installer service to 4.5
- Erased Temp directory
- Reinstalled v13 updated TextWorks software
- Set local security policy > Restriction > Enforcement to "All but Local Admin"
- Ran the "Fix Me" app found at

None of these have resolved the error message...
What else can I try?

Windows XP Pro 2002 (SP3)
Compaq nc6320
