When I try to install Microsoft Word, I get this message:

What can I do to make the installer run?

Try this - Assuming you are running XP - click start/run type in services.msc press Enter or click OK -when the window opens scroll down the list and look for "Windows installer" double click it and make sure the "startup type" is set to manual and not disabled.Example here (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/Installer.jpg) If that still doesn't work try running windows update to get the latest installer, or Download it here (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=889482FC-5F56-4A38-B838-DE776FD4138C&displaylang=en) and install it.
