Microsoft Visual Studio C Runtime Library has detected a fatal error in msiexec.exe

When doing an SQL install, it gets to installing the database files then fails with an error MSG  "An Unhandeled Exception has occured" and it references "msiexec.exe [11440] then Visual Studio debugger comes up and tried to debug then gives an error "Microsoft Visual Studio C Runtime Library has detected a fatal error in "msiexec.exe" How do I get past this? Is there a way to fix or replace that msiexec file?

Have you haven't installed the necessary pre-requisites for SQL Server

1. Windows Installer 3.1.
2. Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0.
