  1. This has been bugging me and ive have been looking and looking for the answer and finally i give up. Iam running Win Xp Service Pack 2. Pretty much when ever i try to run a .exe windows installer program i get the dialog window that i have attached. I have tried the unreg command...installed windows installer again....also downloaded the fix cant remember the build number that was released for possible problems...nothing has worked as of yet so iam seeking your help.

    IF you are still needing help, I found it: Whatever you are trying to run has not been properly installed> you're going to have to help it along by using the choices you see in the installer: This image gives you choices:

    The usual option is to install (the /i parameter is for installing) a system with a command like this (program_name is the name of the .msi file).

    The install option: msiexec /i program_name

    There is also an uninstall option: msiexec /x program_name

    There is additional information for the settings HERE

    It looks like you are going to have to put in the appropriate commands.
