    I recently bought a new game and i am having problems
    instaling it. The following error mesage appears:

    "The installer package cannot be installed by the Windows
    Installer service. You must install a Windows service pack
    that contains a newer version of the Windows Installer
    service.
    E:\CM4.msi"

    However, i have installed all the service packages and
    there are no more critical updates available at the
    moment. My machine is running Windows 98, 2nd edition.

    Would appreciate any suggestions.

    Thanks.

  2. Hi

    Install MSI 2.0 and see if that helps...

    MSI 2.0 for Windows 95, 98, Me can be obtained from
