Windows 8 Dev Preview : Windows Installer Has Stopped Working

    Question

  • Hi Everyone;

    I have downloaded the Windows 8 Dev Preview OS for a English, 32-bit (x86) system. When I run the Setup.exe program as administrator I almost immediately receive the message box, Windows Installer Has Stopped Working, and then the program terminates. I have downloaded the software twice and burned it to a DVD three time with two different burner programs with the same results.

    The System Specs:
    OS Name               
    Microsoft® Windows Vista™ Ultimate

    Version               
    6.0.6002 Service Pack 2 Build 6002

    System Manufacturer   
    Dell Inc.

    System Model          
    Vostro 1700

    System Type           
    X86-based PC

    Processor             
    Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T7300  @ 2.00GHz, 2001 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s)

    Total Physical Memory 
    2.00 GB

    Has anyone run into this problem and has a solution?

    Thanks
