Error 1714

I had Anquet Maps installed on my computer.  I had responded to Anquet's exhortations to update to Version 6.0.  The update went wrong and to try and get the programme back I uninstalled it and tried to reinstall it.  However I try I end up with Error 1714 newer version installed or if I try to download the updated version of Anquet it informs me that there is an older version installed.  I have contacted Anquet support and after weeks of correspondence and many attempts to uninstall, clean, purge and exorcise any reference to Anquet I still can't load my Anquet Maps programme.  They gave up and advised me to restore my computer to its original state (no way).  They said " I'll re-iterate that this is not an error generated by Anquet software, but by corrupted Microsoft Installer files"  I even braved the Registry (and survived) to purge any reference to Anquet but to no avail, I still get error 1714. Can anyone help?
