  2. Greetings,

    This usually happens if your Windows Installer is not working properly.

    To correct, do the following --
    If you're using Windows 2000 or XP, click Start, then Run, and type the following:
    %systemroot%\system32\msiexec.exe /regserver
    then click OK.

    If you're using Windows 98 or ME, click Start, then Run, and type the following:
    C:\Windows\System\msiexec.exe /regserver
    then click OK.
    (You will need to change the C:\ to whichever drive Windows is on).
    Alternatively, you may need to reinstall the Windows Installer service from here:

    After this, run the install again.
