Ok, so I've finally managed to tear myself away from World of Warcraft long enough to start playing with The Goods from my trip to PDC (I know, it's been over a month already!).
I thought I'd do the sensible thing, and not screw up my home PC by installing everything on there, so I stuck in Disc 3 and started the install of Virtual Server. All was going well, until BANG! "Error 1402: Could not open key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\Msxml2.DOMDocument.4.0\CLSID. Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personnel." Now, I know I shouldn't be, but I'm an admin on the box, but what the hell, "Run as..." and enter the admin password just to be safe - the same error.
Nothing on Microsofts site - this error message doesn't apply to people running Windows 2000 or XP apparently. Anyhow, a little more (Google rather than Microsoft) and I got Yeep's solution on Digiwar.com - Delete all registry keys refering to version 4.0, reinstall msxml4.0, and then install Virtual Server - So many thanks to Yeep.
