PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:WindowsXP
Problem Application Name & Version:Earthlink TotalAccess2004
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:"D:\Windows\Access\Earthlink TAR.msi returned 1635"


I am unable to install Earthlink TotalAccess2004 and continually receive the error above. Microsoft say that it is an Earthlink problem. Earthlink says it is an OS problem!
I have done the following to try to fix it(Some several times):
1. Reloaded WindowsXP and all the updates.
2. Removed Earthlink, via regedit, from my computer and tried to reload it again.
3. Ran "RegistryMechanic"
4. Installed MDAC 2.8 from Microsoft
5. Tried installing from the internet instead of the CD.
6. Pulled my hair out and cussed a blue streak. This didn't help,but, made me feel better for a moment.

Where does the TAR.msi error come from and how can I get past it?

Thanks

Sorry, I never did get this resolved, even with some extensive chatting with Microsoft and Earthlink. I finally dropped Earthlink and went back to AOL.
