    Error Message “Windows installer failed to install” encountered while try to install Yahoo Messenger in Windows 7 PC

    Hello sir, I just want to install Yahoo messenger but there is an error message that I mentioned above encountering during Yahoo messenger installation process. This error message comes into play when Yahoo messenger installation process is about to complete. Is there any problem with Yahoo messenger installer setup or in my Windows 7 system? Please provide me the ways to solve this issue.

    When the Windows Installer is having issue there are a few measures that can be taken, such as :

    1. Click START, in the search box type cmd and press Enter.
    In the Command Prompt Right Click and select from the list Run As Administrator,
    Type sfc/ scannow and press Enter.
    This utility will scan all system files and whichever is found to be in question either Repair or Replace it .
    After successful run exit the screen and test the installation process.
    2. Log into www.microsoft.com, find an utility called FIX IT click that and follow the guidence to fix your system Windows 7 errors.

    Those measures can Help .
