Default Msiexec.exe File Needed

Hey guys.... Need some help. I'm working on my wifes grandmother's computer and it is VERY old... Gateway 2000... Windows 98 2nd Edition. I reloaded everything fine... Now I have her slot game on disk and throw that in and I get a box that is saying that msiexec.exe file couldn't be found... what is the answer to that one?

Thanks in advance...

Derek

You can get the actual exe from the xp cd if you have one. Are you sure you are missing it? Should be in the c:\windows\system32 directory...
