Standalone Build automation error

Hello forum, long time reader first time poster.

We're trying to build using the automation interface that is shipped with he standalone build engine. This has worked for us in the past, but on the current VM XP image we get the following

Win32::OLE(0.1701) error 0x800a801d
ERROR: CAN'T BUILD - INSTALLSHIELD OBJECT NOT DEFINED, this refers to the line "Win32::OLE->new("$classid", \&destructor )" - where classid = "ISWiAuto16.ISWiProject

The build engine was installed and not copied, we have tried manually registering the automation COM object, and we have uninstalled and reinstalled. All of theses attempts are met with the same error.

Does anyone have any idea how we can get round this?

A couple ideas here, but I'm not sure where to go if they're false. Are you sure you're running a 32-bit host process (pretty likely on XP), and that HKCR\ISWiAuto16.ISWiProject exists in your registry (should have been put there by the installation's registration)?
