I get the following window when launching ...: Please wait while Windows configures ...

Give full control to installer user(Administrator) in installer folder located in C:\Windows\Installer, if Installer Folder is hidden, you need to check show hidden files and folders in My Computer\Folder Options\View and uncheck Hide protected operation system files.

If it still doesn't work, download "Windows Installer CleanUp Utility" from Microsoft website: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301

uninstall the software, reboot the server and reinstall the software.

Whenever I have had this before it's because the package hasn't been installed properly. You should get event logs giving the component guid that is missing and can then use something like Orca to find out what the component is via its guid and take the appropriate action to fix it. This may be, of course, because I package my own apps.
