I have encountered an installation issue on Czech Windows XP SP3; during
the installation, the MS installer crashed with

"Instrukce na adrese 0x6eb16935 odkazovala na adresu paměti 0x013fde20.
S pamětí nelze provést operaci: written."

[something like "Instruction at address 0x6eb16935 referenced a memory
address 0x013fde20.  Failed to perform memory operation: written."]

message.  I deliberately copy it in my native language, because when I
tried to google for the addresses there, the only hit was:


that talks about other software having the same installation problem

I suspect it is a MS Installer bug, because an upgrade of Microsoft
Installer to 4.5 solved that for me.  When I tried to replicate the
problem on another machine with Czech Windows XP SP3, I wasn't able to
do that, it just worked for me.

I am writing this to you more to have your attention when you get any
other such report, in that case I think we should try to work that
around; but I suspect there is some very rare condition that triggers
this, otherwise searching for 0x6eb16935 would give me more results ;-)

All the best,
