Installatio of Act 2006 Fails

I am installing Act 2006 on a new Dell XPS 7100

 

Everytime I try it gails at installing service

 

I have tried it in Windows 7 64 Bit 32 bit and now xp 32 bit and it is the same error every time.

 

The hardware is a Phenom X6 but al drivers are installed and the PC works with no issues except for ACT. 

I do not have antivirus or firewalls running at this time.

 

The exact errors are as follows:

Act! Error - Setup failed to configure the server.  Refer to the server error logs and setup error logs for more information

 

It rolls back actions and then

 

Error: -1603 Fatal Error during installation

Consult indows Installer help MSI.chm or MSDN for more information.

You might try this ACT! Knowledge Base article -

But be aware that ACT! 2006 was never designed to work on Windows 7 and is more than likely to cause problems.

So I now have found the real problem.  msde does not like cores that are not in the power of 2. 

This is a documented issue in sql express 2--5 and affects msde as well.  The problem I am having now is I cant get an of the workarounds to work

Any Ideas?
