Hi all,

when installing the WI2.0, I got the Error 1601 - The Windows Installer could not be accessed......

On that particular machine, the reason for this was an improperly configured DCOM.

This fix solved the problem on our machine:

* start dcomcnfg (start -> run)
* open to the Default Properties tab
-> Default Authentication Level: Connect
-> Default ImpersonationLevel: Identify

Hope that helps.
greetings
Reinhard
