Re: 0x80070005 Insllation failed

System is XP Professional and SP level 2. I tried both suggestions to reset
the registry and neither worked. The first option says 'subinacl' is not
recognized as an internal or external command. The second option had this as
a result -Configuration of Registry Values was completed successfully.

----Configure available attachment engines...

Configuration of attachment engines was completed successfully.

----Un-initialize configuration engine.. --

I re-ran update, and it still failed.
