Everything went smoothly for me, installing v4 professional on a w200k SP1
Just a stab in the dark, but I recently had trouble with the ms installer. I
was installing something from the microsoft web site, and the installation
aborted half way through. It was one of those 100mb downloads, and I gave up
on it. A week or so later when I went to install something else, I got a
cyrptic message similar to yours, and from memory I had to use the "control
panel/add remove programs", to remove the original aborted installation,
before I could install the new program.

Thanks for the quick reply, but it was something else.
The solution is _not_ to put the *.msi files on a secured NTFS drive, but on
a FAT drive.
I did not experiment it with it too much. Maybe relaxing security on the
NTFS would have worked too.
Probably a Microsoft problem.

FWIW, I installed from an NTFS drive and all went well. I don't know
if it matters but I'm a local admin on this machine, and had created
the files I was installing from. This under NT4 sp6a.
