Windows Installer error message problem


Try to repair the window first if failed then your 2nd option should be fresh installation.

Are you installing the windows by booting from hard disk, if yes then try to install windows by booting your computer with cd rom.

Also try to install latest service packs for overcoming windows errors.

You can also find out the solution by checking whether your windows installer service is running.

You can check it by going to run, enter “msconfig” and press enter.

You will see a windows menu like below


Check windows installer if it is running. If it is stopped then change its status to running and try to install your program again.
