Windows Installer error



I have an error where saying "This installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package." My exact problem is at this link..;en-us;316309

I did what they told me to do.. Install sp1...

I did and it didnt help..

Only specfic installations have this error.

I tried reformatting to resolve, still no luck! I need to install somethings!.. Please help..


Did you format your Hard Drive and reinstall XP?

If you are now at this stage, booted to fresh install I suggest you download the sp1a package and start from there.

Once you have downloaded the sp1a I suggest a reboot.
Once booted in, in start (open) type msconfig select services, disable all.(please note there are a couple of services windows won't allow you to disable). Reboot. Then in start (open) msconfig>services then enable cryptographic services and windows installer. Reboot, and after start up install service pack 1a. When it has installed, don't reboot. In start (open) type msconfig, goto services. enable all then reboot. Try that.



WOW dood thnx alot I will try that and post back to see if it helped



this did not work.. could it be the cd being corrupt... if it is im screwed... any other suggestions...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
