    Greetings naidkath , Welcome To TSG

    Click Start, click Run, type eventvwr.msc in the Open box, and then press Enter.
    Click the Application category.

    Look For Recent Errors > Double Click on them > Another Windows Will open > On the Right Side use the Double Notepad icon to copy the error paste them here

    Do other installers work OK and are there any other problems with the machine?

    What happens when you go to Start > Run, and type:

    regsvr32

    Go To Start > Run > dllcache > Look For "regsvr32.exe" > Copy It And Paste In \Windows\System32
