Default Vista- Installer stops working before setup begins

Hello all, whenever I try to install ventrilo on my 32bit vista machine, I get an error, "setup has stopped working" before the setup even initializes, almost immediately after i double click the installer icon. I have downloaded the setup file from various PCs & even a mac but I get the same error on this vista machine so I don't think it's a corrupt install file that's causing this. I have read through these forums and haven't found an answer to my problem. Also, I tried the fix under the "common problems sticky" > "solution: windows installer errors" but that did not work. Any help is greatly appreciated.

try temp disabling all firewall/virus apps

here's a list of my notes for installer issues. give these a shot to see if any will resolve your problem:

Updated Version 4.5

Download and install the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility.

Select Ventrilo in the list and remove it. This will remove vent off of the installer database and you should be able to install it again.

Start > Run > cmd
Type msiexec /unregister and press Enter
Type msiexec /regserver and press Enter

Common Errors -

Failed to Start -

"The Windows Installer Service Could Not Be Accessed" -

Windows Installer Window Displays When Installing A Program
Check the “Temp” environment variable then make sure the folder is present
Start / Run
(look for “Temp” in the list)
Using Windows-Explorer navigate to the folder
