ModelSim Xilinx Edition (MXE) - Install: "Error 432 reports: Setup has detected that unInstallShield is in use. Please close unInstallShield..." (Windows XP)

Description

When I install ModelSim XE on a Windows XP machine as a user (rather than as an administrator), the following error occurs: 

 

"Error: Setup Initialization Error: Setup has detected that unInstallShield is in use. Please close unInstallShield and restart setup. Error 432."

Solution

You must have administrative privileges to install the ModelSim XE software on a machine running Windows XP.
