Windows installer error 33



When trying to install Microsoft Access 2007 help, I receive the following error:

CL View cannot installl the necessary files due to windows installer error 33.
The process cannot access the file because another process has locked a portion of the file.”

I have uninstalled and reinstalled ‘windows installer for XP’. Registry is clean.
I am running Windows XP media center and Microsoft office 2007 Pro. “Help” works (loads) on word and excel.
Need some help to fix this problem.


uninstall office 2k7 and use the windows installer cleanup utility to remove the rest…
then reinstall , that should do it
