What software are you trying to install?

This may occur when you try to install any Windows Installer-based program.

this time a printer, hp psc 1200 series, but it happens all the no matter what i try to install

Take it you have the service pack installed? How do you proceed after the error message,"no problems or is there a follow up"

Some say that,copying the contents of the windows cd to the hard drive and run the installation from there by double-clicking the setup.exe file cures the problem.

"If" that is the answer,it must in some way be your configuration of Windows as it is unusual, for Win XP/to act as such.I have come across it after a Office install but again that required a patch.

Otherwise i would try a XP repair to your system.

any suggestions as to the repair?
