My Windows Installer is screwed up again, it states that it can't install in safe mode or something is corrupted in Windows Installer and that I need to get in touch with Microsoft. I contacted Microsoft last week and it seemed to be fixed, but now it's screwed up again. I cked the start/run/msconfig/system and it did not have the Windows Installer ticked and it said it was stopped. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Yet another Windows Installer problem. When is MS ever gonna get this fixed? :whistling:


Alright, try this out:

Download Dial-a-fix from http://fileforum.bet...ll/1131569373/2

When you download it, double-click on it to extract all of its files. Then open the folder it creates. Double-click on the file called Dial-a-fix.

Look at the middle-left section called MSI. Click on the box called Fix Windows Installer and make sure all of its sub-boxes are checked too.

Now, at the bottom-left corner, click on GO.

Restart your computer.

Let me know how it goes.

Yeah, it works. And this time it didn't take me half the day to fix the darn problem. Hopefully, one of these days MS will get their act together and fix things before they send them out.


Thank you, Thank you, Thank you

I'm glad I could help :blink:

Dial-a-fix is a very nifty tool that can fix quite a few problems rather quickly. Unfortunately it doesn't always fix the Windows Installer problem. I'm happy it worked for you. :whistling:

1. On the "Start" menu, click "Run":

2. In the "Open" box, type "msiexec /unreg", and then press ENTER

3. Open "Run" again

4. In the "Open" box, type "msiexec /regserver", and then press ENTER

(Don't type the quotes)



***EDIT***
Sorry, I didn't notice it was already fixed ^^
