        While attempting to install a program, I received the following error message:
        “This installation package cannot be installed by the Windows Installer service. You must install a Windows service pack that contains a newer version of the Windows Installer service.”
        My question is: What is a Windows Installer service and how do I obtain a newer version? (I am currently running Windows 98 version 4.10.1998.)
