RE: Windows Installer (Vista)
And this is customer no. 3 which has teh same problem. I cannot install ANY
program anymore since the Windows Installer "has not been installed
correctly". When I try to install the latest version of the WIndows
Installer, the program starts to install but quite quickly says that there is
not enough disk space to process this request. And I have 111 Gb of free
I bought a program, and you are supposed to deliver a working program.
Please solve this asap, as this blocks me in my work!!!!!
