windows installer

By tom.farrell3 ·
When i try to install/uninstall programs that use windows installer i keep getting the following message:- "This installationpackage could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it. Or contact the appliction vendor to verify that it is a valid windows installer package" I've tried the suggestions on the microsoft site with no luck!

Thanks for your reply,
Yes i've updated the installer, ans xp sp3 tries to install itself but never succeeds.The last time it got as far as backing up the system and trying to install until it got to "NTLDR" then a message "setup cannot copy ntldr"
I can't even reload iolo's easy cd creator7.

windows installer errors

by tom.farrell3 In reply to Do you have the latest In ...

Yes i have updated windows installer to 3.1(3 times) I've also done as you suggested in your link for sp3. As i said before the error messages vary depending on what i'm trying to do. 1607,1619 and the "not recognized by windows installer".They all appear to be linked to the same problem, all attempts to cure the problem have drawn a blank. I've tried several software programs which have promised a successful repair no joy. I've run "sfc /scannow" with no errors reported,run disk diagnostics with out any errors reported. So now i'm left with a very sore head (from scratching).
I even tried re-installing sp2 no joy with that either.
ANy other thoughts or ideas would be very welcome.
Tom Farrell.
