    Re: windows installer 4.5

    Thank you for the heads up Joe. I will look at both links and install the new version today.

    Opps! When I downloaded Windows Installer 4.5 and attempted to install it, a message appeared that halted the installation.
    The message said that the download file was NOT a valid Win 32 application. I tried to Run the file then Save, both generated the same error.
    What now?

    Try downloading it again. I've installed it on 7 XP machines so far with no problems.

    Most likely you downloaded one of the 64-bit versions. Make sure you are downloading the correct version for your operating system. If it is XP, it is the last link. If it is 32-bit Vista it is the 4th link.

    Re: windows installer 4.5

    It was the last one named on the Windows Installer 4.5 Redistributable page. The download files name is:

    WindowsXP-KB942288-v3-x86.exe and the only listed for WindowsXP. I also see Windows Installer 4.5 Software Development Kit, perhaps I tried to install the wrong one, you think?

    Where do I go from here?

    Re: windows installer 4.5

    I will try it again and let you know what I get this time. The download file I previously downloaded looked like a command-line file instead of an executible, it had a dark blue band around it.

    Success!! This time I got the Software Update Installation Wizard and the installation was completed.
