Activestate python installation

hi
this is a question regarding installing Activestate python
whenever i try to install the latest Activestate Python on WinXP SP2,
it gives me error saying
"The wizard was interrupted before Activestate 2.4.2 could be
completely installed. Your system has not been modified ....."
any ideas why this is going on?
thanks

Writeable drive?
Is there an install log file you could locate?

As "David" mentioned on ac**********@listserv.activestate.com, could
this be due to an anti-virus program aborting the install on you?

You could generate an install log to see if that yields some clues:

Are you installing with an msi file from a logical drive other than C:?
If so, that's probably the trouble. Copy the msi file to C:\ and try it
from there.
