Downloaded the software for Advanced Alert.

Changed the config file for WSS instead of MOSS as described in a discussion. 

Ran the setup.exe.  Ran perfectly!

Ran the application, saw the "Alert Group" option on the dropdown menu.  Clicked on that entry.  Got the following screen

Unknown Error

Looked in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\LOGS for latest file and saw this message:
