Are policies enabled on the machine?

If so there is a setting which disallows access to the registry and that could be the problem. If not it could be that you have a damaged registry in which case you can try Regclean from Microsoft.

This depends a lot on whether you are installing this over the network onto a WIN9x PC, or WIN NT PC. If it is being installed on a WIN NT Workstation, you need to ensure that no one else is logged on the workstation, and that you have Administrative rights to the PC, as (by default) only Administrators can change the registry in Windows NT. Hope that helps, and good luck!!
