i have win 7 pro, 8gb ram, and home made pc.
in the past 3/4 days the unspecified error message "win installer package could not open". i downloaded open office and it installs till the end of ms virtual ++ redistributable and the error nessage pops up. i have applied several fixes to no avail. i verified that win installer service was on, and the folder is intact. dont know if one of the files is corrupt? i am stumped. where do i go from here?


sincerely,
alden

You probably are trying to install the x86 (32 bit) version rather than the 64 bit version -- Download the 64 bit version HERE and try installing it instead !

the 64 bit 2010 ver installed. i cant uninstall the 2008 x86 version.tried normally and in safe mode. any suggestions. can it remain side by side or will it
interfere?

win installer package continues to come up? i ran a chdsk /f and no errors. what else is left to do?
