    Do you have Windows Installer 3.1 installed?

    I've noticed that MSI packages won't usually install if DCOM server process service is disabled - and of course Windows Installer service needs to be running as well.

    Does Event Viewer show anything else?

    Yes i have it installed

    Application popup: Konfabulator - InstallShield Wizard: MSIEXEC.EXE - Application Error : The instruction at "0x0015ffe6" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "written".

    Click on OK to terminate the program
    Click on CANCEL to debug the program

    Faulting application msiexec.exe, version 3.1.4000.1289, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x0015ffe6.

    After doing the memory check, no problems with the memory, saw the website did everything, still the same error

    why is that?
    thanks
