Error 1901: Unable to install an application on my PC

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I am at a loss with the following message as it appears while I try to install an application in my PC.

“Error 1901: Error attempting to read for the source install database: C: WindowsInstaller213a4.msi”

My PC configuration is:

Windows XP SP1 Professional

Direct X 9.0a

ATI AIW 8500DV (Driver 6.14.0001.6255)

Pentium 4 2.4 GHz


80 WD HD

Why does the error occur? I can hardly cope up with the problem and I need a solution badly.
