Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly. (Windows Installe

Well, I've decided to stop looking for an answer and to post here asking for
help. I've tried, quite literally EVERYTHING I've found in regards to this
problem. Even going as far as a repair install of XP (I'm not formatting and
reinstalling unless no-one can think of anything).

A list of what I've tried to far:
Unregistered and reregistered msiexec,
Uninstalled and reinstalled msiexec,
Made sure the SYSTEM account has the appropriate permissions,
Checked all the DCOM permissions from the Microsoft KB,
And, as I said, a repair install of XP.

If anyone can think of a solution, I'll try it. Any help would be greatly
appreciated.
Thanks.

Thanks for the input, but none of those solutions solved the problem. As I
said, I've tried every relevant KB article I can find, only to no success.

Thanks

Well, I don't really know about the history of your problems or when they
occur, but it sounds like you've spent some time on this.

Have you tried popping in another hard disk and reinstalling XP, and seeing
if that works?

If that install does work, consider the time you have spent to date, the
time needed to keep sifting through the system and the time needed to start
fresh.

The problem with repair installs is that they don't always do much for the
registry - they reuse the old one to a large degree - and it's quite
possible that yours has a subtle problem that can take a very long time to
find.
