Microsoft Installer

From Cedega Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

InstMSIA.exe is the installer executable for the Microsoft Installer Service. It is needed to install .msi files on a Windows 98 system, or when the version of InstMSIA installed on the system is too old.

Some game installers seem to miss this file, while most do fine without it. The exact cause is unknown.

You can download it for free from Microsoft, see below. After downloading it, install it with Point2Play into the tab for the game you want to install, or place it into the same path as the installer for the game.

The InstMSIW.exe version for newer operating systems from Redmond is usually not needed.
