    When attempting to install MSN Live messenger 8.0 on vista, the windows installer stops responding at the "preparing to install" step.

    I tried to "run as admin" but now it returns the message "Install server is not responding (Retry/Cancel) Error code 1603".

    Try creating a new user account and installing from within there. You could aos try right clicking it, go to properties and running in xp compatiblty mode.

    Thanks Jason, running the installer with the "Windows XP Service Pack 2" option worked.
