After reading it I was hopeful, but no success and same error after following all of the steps several times.

Any other suggestions?

Hm, you might file a case with Symantec.

I would love to do that (file a case) but I'm trying to install the trial version and Symantec won't let me file a case for that version.

Ironic... I want to try their software in view of purchasing several licenses for a small business, but because they won't help get it installed I may never know if it's what this business needs and would have to try another vendor.
