Try to install it one more time, new installation must remove previous corrupted installation. If this fails download Windows Installer Clean Up utility: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301
and clean up the traces of Partition Magic.
Then, reboot machine and try to reinstall it Partition Magic.
Also, I highly recommend you best repartitioning tool I ever used - Paragon Partition Manager 10.0
It can create backups and perform repartitioning at the same time. So you are insured before you apply potentially dangerous operation of repartitioning.
Look it here: www.partition-manager.com

As for error, every application has a configuration file that is responsible for dlls work. Is this error generated by Windows or does it come from Partition Magic interface?

I believe it was from Windows because it was generated outside the PM GUI. I may need to upgrade the Windows Installer ??

Updating Windows Installer is a good step. But you need to clean up the traces from corrupted installation of Partition Magic too.
