Windows Installer continually failing.
I have been having issues with Windows Installer 4 on my copy of Vista
Business.
It has been occurring ever since an update was applied many months ago.
Every time an msi file is installed it will fail and state that msiexec has a
problem with the msi dll. I have performed a binary File compare on both
files with the originals and there are no differences, however it always
creates the same fault codes as I have included at the bottom, in
chronological order. Any program that doesn't use the windows installer to
install itself will work fine. I have also tried repairing the windows
installation from the DVD but it doesn't find any problems. I was wondering
if the registry migth have something wrong in it with regards to the
installer but I couldn't find any information on the required keys.

Is there any way to reinstall the installer? or could I install version 3
instead?

The only way I have found to get round this problem is to install the
program on an XP machine and then copy all the files and registry keys to my
Vista machine at which point the program works fine.
