RE: Windows 3.1 Installer fails to install
Thankyou...I had the same problem after 'repairing' my xp installation after
replacing my motherboard...I ran the script and after it prcessed 4013 files,
I successfully completed the windows update required windows installer 3.1
update which allowed correction of a 3.0/3.1 version conflict in the msi.dll
file (among others?)...ran into this problem in the past, but couldn't
remember how to resolve it and found a solution somewhere in the microsoft
database, but after innummerable searches I failed to find the article I
located 3 or 4 years ago...thanks for nothing, Microsoft...thankyou, Kenl. b.
