Did you search up the error code on Microsoft support?
Also, does the same thing happen for all the compatibility modes? Did you try all of the different service pack settings for Windows XP?

If it runs fine outside of compatibility mode, why not just run it normally?

If you think some system files might be damaged you can check by opening an elevated command prompt (type command prompt in the start menu search bar, right click, and click run as admin) and type SFC /SCANNOW. SFC is short for System File Checker in case you are wondering. Also, then running the installer in compatibility mode, you might want to check the run as administrator box in the compatibility tab.

Do you know there can be various reason for Error code (0xc0000005).
case 1: Repair Your Registry
case 2: Virus
3: Bad RAM Memory
case 4: Video Driver Update
case 5: Other Driver Errors
case 6: DEP
case 7: IE6
case 8: Google Chrome
case 9: Windows Service Pack
case 10: Development Issue
case 11: Symantec Antivirus
case 12: Printer Drivers

I hope you are not going to take care of all the cases one by one.
Simply reinstall the operating system and evrything would work fine!!!!

I said why not to run it in normal cuz the installer when it gathers information for installing its says the program only installs in windows xp

thats why ....

well i check the system for any problems thx for informing

Did you try SFC /SCANNOW or running the installer as admin like I recommended?

yep i've done scanning the system and here is the report :
Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.
Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example
C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log

The system file repair changes will take effect after the next reboot.
