sorry. me again. error code 1603

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.messenger (More info?)

sorry. it's me again. i posted this message a few days ago,
but no-one replied. hopefully not because it's a hopeless
case, but because people didn't see it? anyway, if someone
could help, i'd be dead happy...

thanks in advance

HERE GOES:

while installing the new messenger version (and for some
reason, i can't install older versions either now!), error
code 1603 appears.

the event viewer tells me that Produkt: MSN Messenger 6.2
-- Fehler 1325. "(Diverses)" ist kein gültiger kurzer
Dateiname.

(i.e.) "Divers)" is not a valid short file name (i hope
that's correct translation.

also Event ID: 11325(no idea if this is of any use)

    Uninstall messenger, remove its folder from Program Files and then DELETE
    ALL REGISTRY ENTRIES releated to messenger. If you have AdAware installed,
    make sure it's not running, also disable you anti-virus. Then do a clean
    install.

    i've already tried that, but I didn't disable my antivirus.
    that's an important detail, then?

    thanks - i'll try immediately.

    Ok, sorry to hear it did'nt help, the only option I can see, is to ask
    someone who has MSN 6.2 installed to send it to you, then just put the
    folder to you program files directory.
