    Windows Installer

    While attempting to install a program, I received the following error message:
    "This installation package cannot be installed by the Windows Installer service. You must install a Windows service pack that contains a newer version of the Windows Installer service."
    My question is: What is a Windows Installer service and how do I obtain a newer version? (I am currently running Windows 98 version 4.10.1998.)
    Thanks.

    You can get this update via
    http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

    You might want to check other pending updates from your system at the same time. This service lets you download and install either groups or individual updates.

    You can find detailed info on the Windows Installer service at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/win2000/w...fact/wispro.asp
