I want to start an acid project by doubleclicking an .acd file.

then i get an uninstalliing ACID dialogue box!!!! "please wait while we uninstall ACID" or something similar.

When I start ACID and open files through the file-open menu, everything is fine.

this is acid 5.0a :-)

Good Luck. This is a Windows problem that plagues a lot of programs. One day, every time I clicked on a Word .DOC file, Windows would tell me it needed to install the component I had requested. I would have to cancel and load Word from the application icon. The only thing that solved it was reinstalling Word.

If I were you, I would re-install ACID so that Windows stops getting confused about what is and what is not installed.

you should use this utility

if you get this kind of behaviour its caused by the self repairing function of windows installer. means if a file has deleted of the installation, it tries to recreate it - but it needs the original installer for that. if you have moved the instalation files - that installer dialog keeps coming up and mostly ends in some loop.
