Product:'<application name>'-Configuration Failed.

I received this error when I changed the name of the admin account I was logged into without logging off then back on.
In my case this error was caused by Office Visio 2007. The reason was, that in my profile I removed the default permissions, and I was the only one who had access. Restoring the permissions solved the problem.
- Product: Microsoft Exchange Server - This event occurs when you install Update Rollup 1, 2 or 3 for Exchange Server 2007 because a file that is updated by the update rollup is being used. See ME930809, ME935490, ME935999, ME940006 and ME953469 for details.
- Product: Microsoft Office 2000 SR-1 Premium - We received this event before starting any Office application. We added the user to the Administrators group, ran all the Office applications and then removed the user from the Administrators group. This solved the problem.
In our case, a Terminal Server was hardened as recommended. This included disabling of the MSI Installer. Once enabled (and after "gpupdate /force"), the install proceeded as expected.

GPO location: Type gpedit.msc, then go to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Installer.

If you are having problems when installing the ".Net Framework", then read the following newsgroup post. However since this post suggests modifying the registry and other important directories, try to do a backup (or Restore point) before following this post.
From a newsgroup post: "The following is a "blanket solution" that has resolved many cases in my experience:
1. Make sure IIS is not running.
2. Uninstall the .NET Framework from Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs.
3. Delete following folders:
C:\WINNT\assembly
C:\WINNT\Microsoft .NET
4. Delete the following files
C:\WINNT\System32\mscoree.dll
C:\WINNT\System32\URTTemp\mscoree.dll
5. Delete the following registry keys:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETFramework]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Integration]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework SDK]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup]
6. In C:\WinNT\Installer do the following:
Switch to Details view.
Right-click on the Name column header and choose Comments from the pop-up list.
Find the .MSI file with the comment that says ‘Microsoft .NET Framework
(English)…’ and delete it.
7. Download (to your desktop) the .NET Framework (redistributable) from the link below. Once downloaded, run dotnetredist.exe and extract its contents (dotnetfx.exe) to your desktop as well.
8. Download .NET Framework SP2 (NDP10_SP_ME321884_En.exe) to your desktop. The download is also listed below.
9. Start|Run; type "msconfig" (without quotes) and click OK to start the System Configuration Utility.
10. Under the General tab, choose Diagnostic Startup.
11. Under the Services tab, find and add a check to Windows Installer.
12. Click Apply then Close.
13. Reboot when prompted.
14. Start | Run... type "%temp%" to get into your temporary directory. Delete all contents of the folder. At this point, reinstall the Framework by running DotNetFX.exe, then SP2. Note that the settings set in the System Configuration Utility will persist from boot up to boot up; to get back to normal startup you must select 'Normal Startup' in the utility and reboot. If Framework and SP2 go on successfully, you may need to use the ME306005 article to reset ASPNET mappings in IIS".
Product "Microsoft Office XP Professional with FrontPage" - I have received this error when I cancelled the "on first use" installation of one of the Word features.
