I have come accross other apps that have failed due to a corrupt windows installer. Manytimes, the fix is to re-name the windows installer files (dll, etc) by using the .old extension in them. I would search MS TechSupport for references to a corrupted Installer program and see if that works. Take a look at Microsoft Knowledge Base Articles #324518 and #236597 to see if they help in any way. Although they are related to MSOffice, they could still be helpful since they deal with a corrupt installer program.
