Hi,

I am trying to install VMWare 5.0.0.133.. on a system running Windows 2003 Server + SP1. It goes on till the choose the install dir. When i click on Next, the install crashes out to debugger.

I thought the file was corrupt, so i tried running a file which i had had downloaded before (and it had worked.) Now even that is crashing. MSN messenger also is not installing.

What is wrong?

Sincerely,

Karan

have you tried reinstalling windows installer. You can these redistributables from the microsoft website. If it is windows 2k3 then make sure you install windows installer version 3

you would need to find the redistributables from the microsoft website and install from those to repair it. For obvious reasons it does not show in add/remove programs
