A problem and sharing what I do when this happens.

The problem is you didn't share "the errror" and the software title. Maybe armed with that a more precise reply could be found.

So let me share what I do when this happens. I go get the MICROSOFT INSTALLER CLEANUP UTILITY and look to see if there is a pending install to remove. It's a shame we have to do stuff like that.

I am unable to install the installer utility clean-up either -- sort like a bad loop that will not end -- I also cannot unistall the last thing I installed because i get the same blasted error message.

Sorry to read that.

The tool usually helps but I'm working without the error message or other clues. If you want to try again, fill in the blanks.
