I believe the installer is targeting v4.5 and I don't know if that is included in the service pack. The information about Windows installer 4.5 is here: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/942288?p=1

 A co-worker in Germany is trying to install IronRuby on Windows XP SP3. The installer fails with:

"Dieses Installationspaket kann vom Windows Installer-Dienst nicht installiert werden. Sie mussen ein Service Pack fur Windows installieren, das eine neuere Version des Windows Installer-Diensts enthalt."


"This installation package can not be installed by the Windows Installer Service. You have to install a service pack for Windows which contains a newer version for the Windows Installer Service".

I had no such difficulty installing IronRuby on XP SP3 (English). Any ideas what the remedy is?
