Don't you love errors that tell you to see "your support personnel"?
First, try the old faithful reboot; this error may be the result of an RPC error. If a reboot does not clear the RPC error, you have bigger problems than installing MSI packages!
Reregister the Windows Installer service by typing "msiexec /unregister" and then "msiexec /regserver" at the command line.
The System account should have "Full Control" permissions to the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT hive of the registry.
Ensure the Windows Installer service is not disabled by typing "NET STOP MSISERVER" and "NET START MSISERVER" at the command line.
