Did you even try a Google search on "1720 windows installer error"??? It probably took you longer to type your message than it takes to find out the answer via Google.

Windows Installer error 1720 - There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A script required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.

If you cant run the install from the CD, or from a copy you downloaded, then you have a problem with your Windows Installer. You will find more answers for Windows Installer problems on a Microsoft forum.

Remember, please try searching first!

Need a screenshot? ... Like JavaLoader?
Try using BBscreen .....Use JL_Cmder!
or BBScreenShooter!

Download the latest version of the Windows Installer (v3.1) from the Microsoft Windows download web site.
