This is the message I get when I tried to install it. I had the installer before and my aim was to install Web Matrix 3, but I kept getting an error that said: "Webmatrix cannot start because it depends on the Microsoft Web Platform Installer". I erased
all the files I had to install them again and now I got this message when I tried to reinstall the platform installer. What should do to resolve this and get Web Matrix?

Which version of OS are you using? If you installed a x64 version WPI on x86 OS, then the web platform installer could stop working. So to promise the WPI works fine on your side, just ensure the IIS and .net framework has been installed. Then select the
correct version of web platform installer here:
