Thank you for a problem report.

Have you tried to install .zip (http://dev.mysql.com/get/Downloads/MySQL-4.1/mysql-4.1.14-win32.zip/from/pick)? It contains compressed installer (.exe), and it works for me on XP.

By trying this we may figure out the following reasons:
- Incompatible Windows version (I have no SP1 installed, but with XP SP2 this distribution of 4.1.14 also works for me)
- Local virus protection

Do you have one switched on, byt the way?

So, please, try to download and install that .zip distribution and inform about the results.
