Default Amnesia setting in

Either I am getting too old or plain old amnesia is finally setting in, how does one install an MSI file?

most times works like an .exe just double click unless your using windows 95,98,me then use this:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...2-DE3BB768148F

OR windows 2000 and NT 4

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

windows XP has this already installed so double clicking should work or right click it and in the menu choose install.

So what's the difference? Why not use the exe extension?

msi is handy for network purposes can be sent out over it and installed on multiple machines.

A lot of times you can just Right Click on it and choose "Install" from the pop-up menu
