Windows XP install issue, Steam stuck on 1st time setup

We've had one person report an issue with installing on Windows XP, if you're running into this issue with the steam installer this may fix it for you.

Steam gets stuck when you run it for the first time and it says:
Performing first time setup...
Initializing: msiexec (step 1 of 1)

On WIndows XP, you'll need Service Pack 3 if you don't have it already:

Then try installing the prerequisites manually:

DirectX 9.0c:

.Net 4.0

And XNA 4.0:

You may also need to run Steam as an Admin
