View Full Version : Installations Failing

21-07-2009, 12:25 PM
Hello, whenever i try and open any type of Java installation, SQL or any MSI file or exe, i get an error with every file i try saying :

The installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows installer package. i've tried installing updates of Windows Installer, but they all seem to fail with that same message. If anyone knows whats up, please let me know. :S

Install this (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=889482fc-5f56-4a38-b838-de776fd4138c&DisplayLang=en) then try again, if you've got one of the OS's listed

What OS is this?

When did it start doing this.

I tried your advice Speedy, it still didnt work. :S I'm using Windows XP and it's been doing this ever since i reformatted my PC.

Did you install the drivers etc, and service packs / updates (after you reformatted)

Well, i havent used my Mobo drivers disc yet, so maybe i should look into that. And i'm still using service pack 2.
