  2. Checkpoint:-

    Make sure you have the latest WI for your OS -


    Windows Installer 3.1 Redistributable (v2)
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...fc-5f56-4a38-b838-de776fd4138c&DisplayLang=en


    If you have the right version, perhaps you need to unregister and re-register the Windows
    Installer

    To unregister and re-register Windows Installer:
    Click Start, and then click Run.
    Type in the Open box: msiexec /unregister and then click OK.
    Click Start, and then click Run.
    Type in the Open box: msiexec /regserver click OK.
    Type commands exactly, including the space between c and /.
    This will not affect programs which use Windows Installer that are already installed.
