Hi all.

I've got a couple of programs that my lappy won't open.

They end in .msi and when I try to run them, it says " cannot open, choose another program or search te internet etc. Searching the internet seems to take me to loads of websites selling this & that software.

I'm on vista btw.

Can anyone tell me in simple terms the easiest way around this.

And i stress - simple terms pleeeeeese.

cheers dudes.

download and run the .reg file

It's meant for XP but it may work in Vista

MSI are Windows Installer files. The first thing is to make sure that Windows Installer itself is installed on your system. LINK HERE

Usually Windows will then point you in the right direction.

edit: Just seen rwm24's post and that will probably be the better option to start with

You need to download Windows Installer. Go to Windows Updates to downloaad it.
