Before the installer finishes, I get an error message.

The options I use are:
Installing PHP to C:\Program Files\PHP
Setting up Apache 2.2.x Module
Apache Configuration Directory is C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\conf\
Chose to install ALL features

The error message says "There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A script required for this install to complete could not be run. Contract your support personnel or package vendor."

I'm downloading the MSI from

I just tried the link you provided to the MSI. Exact same error under the exact same conditions. This is becoming a showstopper for PHP development on my local machine.

If this helps, if I do not install the Script Executable component, the install works. It appears this component is broken.
