    I just picked up my copy of the Orange Box and unfortunately it won't install. My computer meets the requirements: GeForce 8600 GT, AMD Anthlon 64 X2 4200, 2 GB SDDRAM, Windows XP Home. The optic drive can read/write to CD's and DVD's. I at first thought it was because I didn't have the steam client, but it would've had me install steam automatically in the installation process. So I went to steam's website and downloaded steam and to my surprise I get an error message saying my Windows Installer is not there or inactive. I went to re-active the installer service with the command services.msc and tried to re-activate the installer. But the installer is not on the list of services. So I decided to download the most recent version of Windows Installer 3.0. It installed without any problem but still I get the installer error when I try to install steam or even The Orange Box.
