When installing Guard1 Plus you receive the following error:






This error is caused by InstallShield (a third-party product used to manage the installation and uninstallation of various applications, including Guard1 Plus). It is due to an incompatible version of a .DLL file that was installed on the system, such as Oleaut32.dll, Olepro32.dll, Asycfilt.dll or Stdole2.tlb. For example, version 3.50 of Oleaut32.dll is installed and used only by Windows XP and so causes this error if it is installed on a machine running any other operating system.




Refer to InstallShield KB article Q108188 to resolve this issue.
