Crystal Reports 2008 installation fails


I recently re-installed Windows XP SP3 on my laptop and need to re-install Crystal Reports 2008.

I place the installation CD into the drive and the Auto-run application starts up and asks for the language to install.

I select English and click on the Install button.

After about 10 seconds I get a very cryptic error message.

Crystal Reports 2008 Setup Error

Crystal Reports Setup 2008 has failed.

If the problem persists, please contact Business Objects Product Support.

Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
