    Angry Cannot install Ipod Mini software 1.0 for Windows
    I just bought an iPod Mini, and when I try to install the iPod Mini 1.0 software for Windows on my Windows XP Pro SP1 system, I get the following error:

    1608: Unable to create InstallDriver instance,
    Return code: -2147024894

    I have followed all of the instructions described on with no luck. I did all of the steps and even closed all my programs that were running in the background. I donít know what else to do. I called Apple and they said it wasnít their problemónice. I have a week to return my Ipod to Apple. Can anyone offer insight to my problem?

    Thank you in advance,

    Are you installing off the cd? Maybe you could find a place to download the installer and try with that.
    I'm in your forums, writing sentences in a grammatically acceptable manner.

    After all those instruction and reboot it still won't work?

    Try executing this from command line, then start installation:
    "CProgram Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Driver\8\Intel 32\IDriver.exe" -Embedding
