  • Solved it.

       1.  Re-register msxml3.dll by running regsvr32 msxml3.dll
      
    2. Re-install MSXML3 by downloading and installing the package from

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=28494391-052b-42ff-9674-f752bdca9582

       3. Then I turned "windows installer" under the services from manual to automatic.

    Somewhere in there did the magic.

  • The problem happened when it try installing WCF component:
    [10/26/08,21:00:48] Windows Communication Foundation: [2] Error: Installation failed for component Windows Communication Foundation. MSI returned error code 1603

    This may need to check out the event log launched by "eventvwr" in command prompt for detail information.

    Meanwhile, make sure that the installer is downloaded from the official website, and I've seen another case that ended with the registry permission issue, the potential solution is 
    Start > Run > open "regedit", navaigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog\Security\ServiceModel 3.0.0.0 and assign the permission to the user installing the .NET Framework.

    Thanks.
