    A referral was returned from the server

    I've tried installing two different English Japanese programs and get a response of "A referral was returned from the server", what gives? I've tried using my admin account, run as admin, even set UAC to null and still get the same message. Thanks in advance! The two programs are Tagainijisho and zkanji, and I don't have group policy as my windows is home version.
