Heres my problem...

I have trouble installing programs like "Global IME (Japanese)" from Microsoft. It shows an error code msg.
In fact, I have many programs that couldnt install because of "Windows Installer." Anyone has any idea how to fix it?

Thanks

One of the first things you will download from Windows Update site is Windows Installer 3.1 which is probably why you are getting the error.
