Windows Vista installation package Error



Sometimes virus can stop this type of installation. In order to solve this problem, you have to use Antivirus software and remove all viruses from your computer. Then try to install this software.

Other option is delete the software from your computer and copy a fresh copy of software from other source as like CD/DVD or pen drive. Because may be the exe file of that software is corrupted or some of the install file are lost.

If you don’t have the backup of this software, then download a new version of that software.

There is another thing; Microsoft Corporation has never updated this software for Windows Vista or Windows 7. So that may be the reason why you cannot install this software in Windows 7.
