python-2.4.msi installation issue

    O/S: Windows XP Home (with Service Pack 2)
    Downloaded python-2.4.msi from python.org (10,632KB). When I double
    click on the file from Windows Explorer, the installation process
    presents the window in which I am prompted to either install for all
    users (the default) or install for just me. I selected the defaulted
    value. Installation process presents a window in which the user may
    select the directory for python 2.4 files. I selected the default
    value of the Python24 folder. After clicking Next, the process
    presents a window with the message, "Python 2.4 installer ended
    prematurely. Python 2.4 ended prematurely because of an error. Your
    system has not been modified. To install this program at a later time,
    please run the installation again."

    My question is this: how do I determine what the error was that caused
    the installation process to end prematurely?

    I have the same problem and don't know what's happening, but
    ActivePython worked for me. Get it here:

    Please run

    msiexec /i python-2.4.msi /l*v python.log

    and post the resulting python.log as a bug report on
    sf.net/projects/python.

    In most such cases, upgrading VisualBasic helped, see
