Common InstallShield errors
Error -1607: Unable to Install InstallShield Scripting Run Time
This error most commonly occurs when there are insufficient access rights during installation.

Error -1608: Unable to Create InstallDriver Instance
This error most commonly occurs when there are insufficient access rights during installation.
Try ensuring that you are logged on with admininstrative rights and that there are no restrictions in place that might prevent the installer from operating (examples include network group policies and anti-virus software protection) and run the installer again.
 
Error -1628: Failed to Complete Installation or
Error -1628: Failed To Complete Script Based Install
The most likely cause of a 1628 error would be if one accidentally tried to run the installer more than once at the same time.
Try removing the installation CD and then restarting your computer. Once the computer has restarted, re-insert the CD and wait for the CD menu to appear. When the menu appears, click just once with the left mouse button on the top installation option. You should now wait for the installation to start.
  Note that depending on the speed of your computer, there can sometimes be a delay between clicking on the CD's install option and the actual installation window appearing on the screen.
