    Are you using the compatibility wizard to install the software?

    If yes, and you get the app loaded but the error message when you try to start it. Then sometimes you can try an older or newer copy of that file. Just remember if the file you a changing goes in a Windows System folder do not change it.

    If you are not using Compatibility to install- Try it.

    ikernel is part of Installshiled... The installer for the app.

    I'm not too familiar with the details, but I have been able to fix some ikernel errors by deleteing everything in the temp folders (Installshield copies files to temp directories while installing).

    Try clearing your C:\Windows\Temp, C:\Documents and Settings\user_account\Local Settings\Temporary Files folders.

    Also try rebooting.
