JSI Tip 6025. 'The install Shield engine 'ikernel.exe' could not be launched - Error loading type library / dll'?

When you try to install a program that uses InstallShield on Windows XP, you receive:

The install Shield engine 'ikernel.exe' could not be launched - Error loading type library / dll.

This error will occur if any of the following files are NOT located in the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder:

Stdole32.tlb
Stdole2.tlb
Stdole.tlb

To fix this problem, expand the files from the Windows XP CD-ROM, by opening a CMD.exe prompt and typing:

CD /d C:\
Expand <CD-ROM Drive:>\I386\stdole32.tl_ %SystemRoot%\System32
Expand <CD-ROM Drive:>\I386\stdole2.tl_ %SystemRoot%\System32
Expand <CD-ROM Drive:>\I386\stdole.tl_ %SystemRoot%\System32
