The workaround is to rename the file from C:\Windows\Installer\php-5.2.2-win32-installer.msi to C:\Windows\Installer\php-5.2.1-win32-installer.msi
This or fixing the MSI scripts.

Please try the latest installer version

Also, you may want to try uninstalling PHP 5.2.1 first, then installing PHP 5.2.2. There was a problem with the initial installer released for that version with upgrading, which could be causing the problem.

XPSP1 - same issue.
Tried renaming file, tried moving to /installer directory (no similar file found there before copying), various combinations of installation settings/choices.

The problem is caused by earlier installs and by a certain mixup with the MSI packages. Either try to update the MSI system or try to clean up all previous installs.
