Got one of these on a server when attempting to install the .net FrameWork 2.0 and Sharepoint Services Service Pack 2 on a Windows Server 2003 SP1 machine.

2. In the “Open” box, type “msiexec /unreg“, and then press ENTER.
 
3. On the “Start” menu, click “Run”.
 
4. In the “Open” box, type “msiexec /regserver“, and then press ENTER.
