Since install of CPF V 3.0 installed programs want to be reinstalled[HELP]

Hey everyone, first impressions of CPF V 3.0 are wonderful but I’m having one small problem.

I’m a Psychology major at a local university and as such have SPSS (a really large, powerful, statistical program) installed on my computer. In addition I have AMOS and SPSS Smart viewer installed as separate programs that add additional functionality.

To the problem! When I first started Windows after restart the windows installer popped up and told me it was trying to install AMOS which is already installed. Since AMOS installer is not on my local hard drive it could not be completed, obviously.

Next I went to open up MS Outlook 2007 and the Windows installer popped up once more begging to install SPSS Smart Viewer, also installed already, also without an installer on my local hard drive. Once again, it obviously could not be completed.

[Edit: I turned on AOL Instant Messenger and Windows is asking to install SPSS Smart Viewer again. What’s the deal here?]
