Installation package could not be opened

By zer000 ·
Got a new laptop about 2 weeks ago, started doing the typical installations; crap cleaner, daemon tools etc etc
Random programs don't install for example;
AMD overdrive

And others, it seems purely random, not sure why.
I download everything to the same folder.

Computer is up to date.

"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."

"Not enough storage is available to process this command"
"installation did not complete"

There isn't really a lot more I can add to this post, I doubt system speocs would help, but if anyone wants any info just post and ask :)

It's saying not enough storage available

That would imply you're low on disk space. Did it use the "enitre" hard drive for the OS or did it install on a "small" partition.

Check in Disk Management & see what you have for drives listed & available/used space.

Operating system installed on one of two partitions of which 14.4Gb is free(C), the other partition has a few hundred Gb(D).
I downloaded it to the D drive, would that affect the install?

Yes it would make a difference. You have to get the program(s) to load in the "C" drive to be able to run properly. Also with only "14GB" or so left free, you might want to re-size the "C" drive so that you have space for the swap memory that Windows and other operating systems have to do, other wise you will have a very SLOOOOOw system that will flag up errors quite a lot.

I love this type of thing. I put you in my contacts, but I don't know how that works.
I have a bunch of questions. If you can use contacts, I'd like to see this work out.
What kind of laptop.
How large is the hard drive.
How much memory.
There's a solution to this. I probably could help, but I need more info.
Contact me if you want.

I'm running vista, not sure if that would cause anything to change, but I was reading the page and starting following "Method 2: Reinstall the Windows Installer"

1 Click Start, click Run, type cmd in the Open text box, and then click OK.
2 Type cd %windir%\system32, and then press ENTER.
3 Type attrib -r -s -h dllcache, and then press ENTER.

Attempted part 3 and it said dllcache not found, I attempted to skip the step but it said access denied..
