Half-Life install fails with ISSET_SE in SETUP.EXE



I'm trying to install Half-Life on my (newly) XP'd machine. Despite trying it from Administrator, from hard-drive, etc. the install always fails with

ISSET_SE caused an Illegal Instruction in module SETUP.EXE at 0001:2CB4

This is the original Half-Life (1.01 was it?) CD. Any clues would be greatly appreciated!


(added later) - I don't run Norton or any other av tools...
Installs fine on my XP Pro system. Did you do a upgrade or a clean install? If you did a upgrade I bet thats your problem. Try doing a clean install of XP (delete the windows and program files directory's) that way there's no old windows registry or .ini settings messing with your system.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
