Subject: Installation of Version 2.0 to Win'ME

Robert STEVENS
Dear Support:

    I have upgraded from OOo 1.1.2 to OOo 2.0 on my Win'2K systems, and now want
it on my Win'ME system. It won't go! I find nothing about my errors in the FAQ
area. Please help.

______________
System Win'ME:
--------------
    4.90.3000
    AuthenticAMD
    AMD Athlon XP1600+
    384MB RAM
_____________
Install File:
-------------
OOo_2.0.0_Win32Intel_install.exe (On both systems -- copied from same CD)
    Unpacking includes file
    setup.ini with contents:
    ---- SETUP.INI ----
        [setup]
        database=openofficeorg20.msi
        instmsiw=instmsiw.exe
        instmsia=instmsia.exe
        msiversion=2.0
        productname=OpenOffice.org
        productcode={76BB7B2D-748F-4AE9-89C3-78C051833EA1}
        [languages]
        count=1
        default=1033
    ---- end setup.ini ----
______
Error:
------
Msg 1
    This package require a newer version of the Windows Installer.
    Do you want to update the version of the Windows Installer on your system?
    Yes No
Yes > Msg 2
    The specified service already exists.
    OK
OK > Msg 3
    Setup was unable to find the file ".
    OK

Things I've tried:
------------------
    Download "InstMsiA.exe", version 2.0 directly from MicroSoft. It come in at
a different size than what is in the OOo Install file (1,709,160 bytes, vs
1,708,856 bytes) -- but gives the same error: "The specified service already
exists. OK"
    Un-Install 'InstMsiA.exe' (in preparation to re-installing it) -- but I find
no route to that.

Any Ideas and Thoughts on where to go from here would be appreciated.
