A genuine 1608 error in Windows Installer relates to a ERROR_UNKNOWN_PROPERTY.

So, the error you are seeing is probably not related to Windows Installer, but to InstallShields Installer engine. This is most probably because you need to re/install the InstallShield InstallScript driver.

Thanks for the info, but where do I get the InstallShield InstallScript driver from to reinstall it, sorry probably sounds a bit noobish. Thanks again.
