The ikernal is an installation engine and it has been updated.

Please read this page click here download the updated engine (item 4) and see if that solves your problem.

i've been pulling my hair out with this one all week. nothing i have tried will sort this out.the disc is ok as the apps instal o.k. on two other pc's (o.k. o.k. eula and all that, just for test purposes!!!) well, today as a last resort, i have reformatted the hdd, reinstalled windows and all the necessary drivers etc shut down all running apps except explorer and systray, tried again to install the software and guess what? still the same error. GRRRRRRR. the only thing i've noticed is that when the pc boots after the message:- mode prepare code page function (850 or something)... the next line says mode select code page function is not available on this device. could this have any bearing on the problem? this message was there both before and after the reinstall.
