When I've seen this MSI error it has always been related to the fact
that the installer is 16bit rather than 32bit. That could produce that
error. I mention this because that is the most common reason the games
you mentioned produce this error.
To test whether or not this is the issue:
1. Pick a machine that exhibits the issue as designate it GuineePig1 :)
2. Put a Windows XP cd in the drive. Close out of any autoloaded
3. Click Start>Run. Type in CMD and press enter.
4. At the command prompt, type the following commands, pressing ENTER
after each command:
expand CD-ROM Drive Letter:\i386\config.nt_
expand CD-ROM Drive Letter:\i386\autoexec.nt_
expand CD-ROM Drive Letter:\i386\command.co_
5. Run your program again.
That's all you need to do to test this issue. You've just allowed that
computer to run 16 bit applications (assuming the stars and your IT
department are aligned). If it works, perhaps a rebuild of the
installer is in order.
