I get the error 1719 when I try to install either Norton Antivirus 2003 or McAfee 7.0 Pro (original, payed for downloads). The error message is: you are running safe mode (oh no), or you haven't installed Windows Installer properly'
I've tried Microsoft's solution to register msiexec in safe mode, but to no avail.
Who can help? Is re-installing the whole OS the only solution, as is suggested in the XP section of this site? http://www.experts-exchange.com/CXO/Operating_Systems/WinXP/Q_20440944.html
