How do i install a software for windows xp on my windows 7


Most of the softwares for Microsoft Windows XP are compatible with latest Operating Systems (OS) of the same company. So you can try to install the software through the installer.
If the installation fails with error you should understand what is the reason.
If the reason is incompetibility with the OS you may consider to install Windows XP Mode on your Windows 7. You can download Windows XP Mode from the Microsoft site. This is the link to the page. You should choose the options from the drop-down menus according your system (32 bit or 64 bit).
Then you will have the oportunity to download Windows XP Mode and Virtual PC.
After installing these softwares and restarting the computer, you could enter Windows XP mode and install your XP based software. I hope this helps you. Good luck!

To get rid of this error, I would suggest you to install the latest version of Windows Installer which you can download it from the link:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=5a58b56f-60b6-4412-95b9-54d056d6f9f4&displaylang=en


Step2:

Start the Windows Installer service.

1. Click Start, type Services.msc and press [ENTER]

2. Double-click Windows Installer.

3. Set the Startup type of Windows Installer to Manual.

4. Click Start to start the service. Note down the error message if any.

5. Click OK.

Step3:

The Windows Installer CleanUp utility deletes all files and registry settings associated with a program's Windows Installer configuration.

Refer the article below which talks about the description of the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility:

New application software can not installed


I SOLVED THIS ON MY LAPTOP BY REINSTALLING THE WINDOWS INSTALLER. THIS PROBLEM USUALLY HAPPENS WHEN THE INSTALLER IS CORRUPTED BY SOME MALFUNCTION. THE BEST SOLUTION IS TO UNINSTALL AND RE-INSTALL THE PROGRAM FROM THE MICROSOFT WEBSITE. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU.
