    Will not install on an XP Pro SP2 desktop. Error message reads “Could not access VBScript run time for custom action” inside of a pop-up message box called “Installer Information.” FAIL!

    Microsoft has created a Fix-It for this!
    What this Fix it does is to remove incorrect or corrupt registry entries that interfere with VB support in windows and then re-registers the DLL ensuring that the correct registry setting are there. After running the Fix it solution you may be able to immediately try the operation that previously gave you the error, but to be sure, a reboot is suggested. This will address similar issues with other programs as well and not just the applications that are specifically mentioned in this thread.

    The link to the Fix it is:

    Oddly enough…the first thing I noticed is the spelling in the title of this article.

    Honestly, if you need software like this…you probably shouldn’t own a computer to begin with.

    Well, I tried the link that you suggested and received yet another error message. The “name” of the message is “Microsoft Fix It 50842” and the detailed text reads “This Microsoft Fix It does not apply to your operating system or application version.” In my initial post there is a typo. I have Service Pack 3 installed, not SP2.
