how to resolve a windows installer error of 2738

 I first installed Apapche 2.0 and show ok under localhost:8080

  I then downloaded and attempted to install PHP 5.28 and received a 3738 error.  I believe this erro is with windows installer.  How would I fix this.   I do not believe this to be a PHp question.

Who is Participating?
well which error is it? If it is 2738 then are you running as admin? I know it dumb but make sure that you are when you do second install. I think that you might be having a Vb Script error. type "regsvr32 vbscript.dll"

Resolution - Re-register the VBScript engine

If the latest VBScript engine is already installed, reregister the VBScript engine. Note you must be logged in as Administrator or logged in as a user with admin privileges for the computer to execute these steps.

   1. On the Start menu, click Run.
   2. In the "Open" field dialog box, enter the following command and click OK:

      regsvr32 vbscript.dll

      A message should appear stating that the "DllRegisterServer in vbscript.dll succeeded."
