Windows Installer Package Problem

  RobCharles1981 10:43 26 May 2008

I'm trying to install some software using the Windows Installer package but I'm greeted with an error message:

"This Installation cannot be by directly launching the MSI Package you must run setup.exe"

any ideas on this please?

Thank you.

I think this means the software you are trying to install has its own installer (setup.exe) and doesn`t use the Microsoft Installer. I suggest you look at the files you have and double click setup.exe, the software should then install.

If you need more help, identify the software you are trying to install and what files exist within the package.
