Henry, I will give you directions to remove the registry keys so you can install again. Follow the directions carefully. Make sure you look carefully at the items specified. There are other registry entries that are similar. Make sure you are getting the entry specified. I am also running XP. 1. Click on Start. 2. Click on Run. 3. In the 'Open:' field key in "regedit". 4. Click OK. This will start the Registry Editor. Be very careful from here on. A mistake can be fatal to your system!!! 5. Click on the '+' in front of 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE'. 6. Click on the '+' in front of 'SOFTWARE'. 7. Click on the '+' in front of 'Unigraphics Solutions'. 8. Click on 'Solid Edge'. Do not click on the '+' in front of 'Solid Edge'. 'Solid Edge' should be the only item highlighted. 9. Press the Delete key on the keyboard. The entry for 'Solid Edge' will be removed. 10. Click on the red 'X' in the upper right corner of the Registry Editor. This will close the registry editor. Try to install again.
