Portal toolkit installation with WS Portal 5.0. Test environment fails

Having problems, just as in recent post, for installing Portal toolkit with WebSphere Portal V5.0 for Test Environment. I tried all the options that the readme.html file suggests (Shorten PATH envt variable, Short directory name C:\WSED (Webshpere Studio Enterprise Developer 5.1.2), and uninstall/ install). But it still fails. I am installing toolkit in Webshpere Studio Enterprise Developer 5.1.2, and so I dont see log file in C:\WSED\runtimes\portal_v50\log\wpsinstalllog.txt (may be its cuz of WSED).
I have tried installing the toolkit like 3 times already.....
Please any help it highly appreciated.....

Well, one reason for failing is if you have any websphere server service started.

The thing is, if you fail once, uninstall will not work, and any further atempts to install to the same path will cause the installer to try to fix the instalation, which will fail.

The only solution for this (apart from an os reinstall) is to try to install to a different path for every atempt.
