  • You can verify which version of the Microsoft Windows Installer you have by running the following command:

    msiexec /?

    Here you'll see a window display with the version at the top, something like:

    Windows ® Installer. V 3.01.4000.1823

    If you need to download Windows Installer, point your browser to http://update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-us to download Microsoft Installer.
