Hi I run Windows 7 x64 bit Premium Home Edition and after trying to update from an old version of ad aware I have not been able to install the latest version (9.6).

I first manually uninstalled the old version, without using Revo and upon installing 9.6 was met with:
"There is a problem with this Windows Installer Package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor."

I then did registry cleans, redownloaded 9.6 numerous times, tried other methods such as trying to install an old version of Windows Installer Package 3.1 and 4.5 (which are both years old) as suggested in a very similar thread, installed old AAW and uninstalled using Revo as suggested - all to no avail.

I still come up with the same message no matter what I've done. Help would be appreciated.
