We found a very simple (and trivial) solution to the problem. We
rebooted winXP in safe-mode (logged in as adminstrator) and installed
pymol without any problem. Now it runs fine.

Unfortunately this -and previous suggestions- do not fix the problem we
encounter when installing pymol on our brand new Dell winXP/SP2 systems.
We tried the suggestions in the pymol-wiki, we tried the specific
16-bit Dell issue and we tried the shorter path method without any
success. What happens now is that the installer doesn't start up at
all, although the wowexec is loaded. The wowexec process just hangs
till one logs out/reboots.
Anyone another idea how to fix this? Thanks for the help!
