Trouble Installing VSE 8.8 on Windows 7 32-bit Computer


             When i tried to install VSE 8.8 on Windows 7 32-bit Computer i receive error 1721. I googled the error code and i found that it is do with Microsoft Windows Installer. But I could not find the Windows Installer Package for Windows 7 32-bit computer. Its so inappropriate for me to post this question here. But can you guys extend your support and provide a workaround for this issue?

Dealt with Error 1721 on a couple of XPSP3 and resolved it by performing 1 of 2 things:

Reregister the Windows Installer service

msiexec /unregister
msiexec /regserver

and or made sure that KB981669 wasn't installed.

Is this a fresh install or upgrade? If it's an upgrade then you might be dealing with a corrupted VSE8.7 uninstall.
