So far I've only heard one person say the installer actually works, and
found at least two other messages in mailing list archives asking for
the password.  Last time I asked here, your virus suggestion was the
only response.

I've tried the CIH virus cleaner, and I've checked with Innoculan with
the latest virus updates.  As far as I can tell my machine is clean of
any and all known viruses.

That doesn't mean that I don't have a corrupted or misversioned DLL file
somewhere.  If the installer program truly does work, than a bad DLL on
my machine is most likely the problem.

Thank you very much for your help.
