Error creating process. Reason=c:\windows\system32\advpack.dll

I couldn’t install programs through Windows Installer sometimes in past. My customer had the same problem installing SR1 for Office 2003 and I found solution in a News Groups. Somebody recommended just change path in variable TEMP from (default)…

C:\Document And Setting\UserName\Local Settings\Temp

to

C:\Temp

I deleted User variables “TEMP” and “TMP” and I set path in variable “TEMP” to “C:\TEMP” in System variables. Next I set permissions for the folder. I unset ACL inheritance from parent folder and for the folder I set

Everyone / Full Controll

This solved my problem
