Go to start/run, and type
regsvr32.exe regwizc.dll
OK, then,
regsvr32.exe licdll.dll

If no help, try an Upgrade or Repair setup.

If you run an XP "Upgrade"setup, from the original, or "Gold" version of the setup CD, and you have SP2 installed, it might go into
a setup loop, and you could lose your install. Uninstall SP2, BEFORE you Upgrade setup from CD (that lacks sp2 on it.)
