I already checked on the persissions, i am logged on as administartor, UAC turned off.
There was a bad uninstall of the product, had to run "Windows Installer Cleanup" because was receiving message "already installed" at setup.
Now i have this Error 1402. Something else i need to clean up before reinstallation?

Thank you for any advice.
