I have this realy frastrating problem. Every time i try to install apps that use install shield i get an error message:

Install Shield Engine (iKernel.exe) cannot be installed. (ox10000)

This just started recently and also i just clean installed win 2k (SP 2)
Tryed searching microsoft and installshield.com knowledge bases, but none of their solutions helped.
I tryed the following without any success:
- reinstalling IE 6
- reinstalling ikernel.exe from installshield.com
- deleting installshield/engine folder
- checked the permessions in DCOM

please help!
