OK :-)

I do not know, is the machine account is responsible for the error. I think the intermediate problem is to shallow error reporting code at that section, which does not allow to pin-point the exact culprit.

Yes it is. It is Windows 2000 native domain.

I will do that for sure. I would like to clarify - do I have to make the trasform with the Properties table additional record, pointing to settings.xml file, or else .msi package install will fail?

I am sorry, but I do not know what exactly to report. I think you all suppose, that the problem is in the autehtication code section, when using machine account. But from the error output, I am not so sure about that. I was educated to report only the exact information, which is manifesting the bug, without any hypotehsis of my own, in case if I am not developer intimate with the inner workings of the software. I think this would be wise.
