Guest Windows NT4.0, Microsoft Installer V2.0 fails to install some programs

I don't know whether this might be problem of Microsoft or Virtualbox, but I have also other problems on Windows Vista where I am unable to install all Windows Updates and security patches (but this is treated in another ticket).

I have Mac Mini Intel Core2Duo 1,83GHz with Mac Mini Leopard as host.

I installed Windows NT4.0 with SP6 as guest. Also I installed the last Windows Installer V2.0 from Microsoft.

I am unable to complete some installation programs with Microsoft Installer.

At least the installer description of Opera V9.63 mentions that it supports Windows NT. So why it fails???

But as I mentioned, this could be also a problem of Microsoft and Windows NT is very old.
