I would really like to install Windows Live Messenger 9 beta, but I'm having some problems. I downloaded the went installer and it automatically had messenger set for update. It showed the install proccess, but at the end it gave me some error about the install source not being readable or something along those lines. I tried a few more times and also with the offline 130MB installer. I searched online and found a 17MB installer and it gave me the same error as the other two. Anyone know why it says the source isn't readable? Anyone offer any help?

OMG, can't believe I just got it. Moved all the files in the %windir%\Installer folder to a new one, and it installed fine. To prevent issues, moved back all the files that were originally in the %windir%\Installer folder. Let this be a tip to people having trouble with this.
