    Grrrrr :(

    I'm not able to install Windows Installer 3.1, There is no error message other than It failed to install, restart your computer. I have looked over the MS website and all that happened was I got a head ache from all the information there. Can anyone help me with this. I'm unable to update with out it installed.

    Smitty :(

    Thanks for your help, and all the others who posted. The problem was in registry permission. I think I now have it solved. However with all the problems I am having I'm leaning towards a clean install of OP :) This was a upgrade......and they always seem to be trouble.

    Thanks
