Suggest that you read

I have no idea what you're talking about. When do you get "this error"? What were you trying to install at the time? Do you have a screenshot of the web page where you get this error?

The error means that the developer who built the component did not properly construct a handler to obtain request variables, that's what it means. The use of JRequest has been deprecated since J! 1.6.
