    "this installation package could not be opened."

    i have been getting this message:

    this installation package could not be opened. verify that the package
    exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to
    verify that this is a valid windows installer.

    when im using cmd and type "msiexec -i <filename>", i can open the file
    but.... for some of the installation files, you need to open the msi file
    from the setup.exe itself or else it will say "this file can only be opened
    from <blahblahblah>".

    it pisses me off.

    im using:

    Window Vista Home Premium
    x32 Operating system
