      Maybe a policy setting?

      Is this computer a member of a domain? A business network with a Server? It could be a security policy denying you of installing using Windows Installer. Even if it is not a member of a domain, a local security policy could be in place…some viruses can changes these settings.

      Click on the “Start menu” – “Run” – gpedit.msc (enter)

      Then navigate to: Computer Configuration – Administrative Templetes – Windows Components – Windows Installer. Look for anything that might be configured or enabled, like “Disable WIndows Installer” or “Prohibit User installs”.

      I could be totally off on your issue, but this is worth a look in my opinion. =] (can’t hurt)
