Notable: Attempting to install the DotNetZip tools (DotNetZipUtils-v1.9.msi) on Windows XP prompts: "DotNetZip tools cannot be installed on this computer. It is supported on Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, or later.". If I use 'msiexec /a DotNetZipUtils-v1.9.msi', I can get it to 'install' and the DotNetZip GUI runs, however it won't be able to make valid ZIP files.

FYI Manjulata - you're title says "error on running SFX in vista and WinXP" however your description does not say it errors on Vista. You should clear that up.
