    Problem installing DM...

    I have been having trouble re-installing my DM.

    The Installation Wizard returns the error "the wizard was interrupted before Blackberry Desktop Software could be completely installed. Your system has not been modified. To complete installation at another time, please run setup again."

    I have tried virtually everything, but I can't seem to re-install the software. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thank you.

    Make sure the old DM has been completely removed. Go to C:/Program Files/ and delete the research in motion folder, then go to /Common Files and delete the Research In Motion folder. Reboot your PC then reinstall DM.

    What version of DM are you trying to install? I would suggest an older version or DM 5.0 and see if any of those work for you.

    I would uninstall (thru add/remove programs) all OS and blackberry related everything, then reboot PC and start installing DM fresh (before installing anything else)

    Try renaming the InstallShield folder in x:\Program Files\Common Files, InstallSheildOLD will work. And run the install again.
    Also what service pack is installed in XP? Might want to just use SP2, SP3 is known to cause issues sometimes.
    Worse comes to worse, just re-install XP on your VM.

    Hmmmm...Since I am not finding the InstallShield folder (did a search even) could that be the problem? I know the mac very well, and a knew DOS many years ago (I'm dating myself), but I am not that familiar with Windows. I do have SP3 installed, but that was just updated last night, so that should not be the source of the issue.!
    Thanks.

    In XP, goto My Computer > Local Drive(usually C) > Program Files > Common Files, and you should see the InstallShield folder in there.
    Also make sure the user account your using in windows is not a limited account.

    Here's a couple other things to try:

    1- Run this from the command prompt:
    cd %windir%\system32
    regsvr32 vbscript.dll

    Should get a successful message.
    2- Download Microsoft Windows Script Host Version 5.6
