Setup cannot continue. Microsoft Runtime DLL installer failed to complete installation

This post was originally published on this site

I am newbie to virtualization. Have new PC with 64-bit Windows 7. Downloaded VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.exe. Double-click to run installer, see VMware server spash screen. Installation progress bar gets 90% done and stops. 5 sec later alert pops up titled Product Installation and says: Setup cannot continue. The Microsoft Runtime DLL installer failed to complete installation.


I’ve searched VMware forums and google extensively. Most suggestions point to registry problem. I’ve run CCleaner and Glary Utilities for registry fixing and I still get the same error. I don’t have any Windows issues with this PC–everything runs fine.


Please help.
