I got only 6 disabled services. I set them all back to manual yet no help. Prior to that, I tried unregistering and reregistering msiexec:
Sadly no help either. So I tried installing the updated installer ( http://www.microsoft....displaylang=en
), sadly no help either. Then I tried the unreg/reg trick again, just to be sure and it's still not helping...
So I fired up FileMon to watch what is going on when I try start the Installer service and the results are only 3 problems:
313 11:46:36 msiexec.exe:776 OPEN C:\WINNT\system32\msiexec.exe.Local NOT FOUND Options: Open Access: All
336 11:46:36 msiexec.exe:776 OPEN C:\WINNT\system32\Program\picture.exe PATH NOT FOUND Options: Open Access: All
363 11:46:36 msiexec.exe:776 QUERY SECURITY C:\WINNT\Installer INVALID DEVICE REQUEST
INVALID DEVICE REQUEST?!
I tried take a look at the Dial-a-fix
utility and I must say it helped me with my other problem - my windows positions are NO remembered before. It found out that there was set some nasty limitations (probably by spyware), witch caused these settings are NOT remembered.
Well, not anymore. Dial-a-fix
helped me greatly! http://wiki.djlizard...tandard_version
Sadly it did not help me with the installer problem...
