Windows Installer Crashing, Please Help!!! RRS feed

  • General discussion


    have a WIndows XP SP2 system running. Recently I have a peculiar problem.
    Whenever I try to install or remove any applications using the Windows
    installer, ie, when I run .msi files, it crashes and opens up the debugger for msiexec.exe .
    I tried re-installing the Windows installer, but no luck. Please Help me in this regard.

  • hi


    actually, it was a problem with the anti-virus.

    I re-installed it and everything went fine.

    Thanks for your suggestions anyway.
