    I’d need to at least see the error messages to come up with any possible solutions.

    i get a error of InstallWoW.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. and Windows Live Installer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

    First, make sure all your drivers are installed, including the latest version of your display driver (from nvidia or ati), reboot and try installing wow again.

    If you get the same error again, try going into the application logs

    Control Panel> Admin Tools>Event Viewer>Applications

    There should be some more detailed error messages in there that might be helpful.
