I'm having the same problem as many others regarding the MVVM Light ToolKit setup GalaSoft.MvvmLight.18.104.22.168.msi
"There is a problem with this windows installer package.
A program required for this install to complete could not be run.
Contact your support personnel or package vendor."
I am trying to install it on XP SP3 on a Xeon desktop. I have managed to install it on my i5 laptop with the same operating system configuration.
Checking the event log gives the following response.
The description for Event ID ( 11721 ) in Source ( MsiInstaller ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be
able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: Product: MVVM Light Toolkit -- Error 1721. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program required

Just installed V3 without problems. V4 installer seems to spend much longer doing something with Templates and then fails in the same way.
I have tried GalaSoft.MvvmLight.V4beta22.214.171.124.19.msi and GalaSoft.MvvmLight.126.96.36.199.msi.
