Go back into Regedit and change the 1 to 0 on the Administrator under

 

 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList

 

Then try again.

Let's try these:

 

Copy the next 6 lines

 

net stop msiserver

msiexec.exe /unregister

msiexec /regserve

REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\MSIServer" /VE /T REG_SZ /F /D "Service"

REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Network\MSIServer" /VE /T REG_SZ /F /D "Service"

net start msiserver

 

Start, All Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt.  Right click and Paste or Edit then Paste and the copied linse should appear.  Hit Enter.

 

What this does supposedly is allow the installer to work in Safe Mode so if you reboot into Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking you should be able to log in as Administrator and try one of your installs.

 

Then I have another download for you.  This one resets the registry entries for the Installer service to the defaults:

Download and save then right click and Extract All.  You should get MSI-Repair.reg.  Right click on it and Merge. Reboot and see if anything will install.

 

Finally can you open regedit and the open the HKEY_USERS key and take a screen shot of it?  I want to see it you have all of the special accounts.

Unfortunately that didn't really work right.  Did it do anything after you hit Merge?  Error message or?

 

reg query "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\msiserver" /s > \junk.txt

notepad \junk.txt

 

Copy the two lines above then open a command prompt and right click and Paste or Edit then Paste and the lines should appear.  Hit Enter if notepad does not open.  Copy and paste the text from notepad.

That looks good.  There is one other location we can look at.  Do the same as before:
 
reg query "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root\LEGACY_MSISERVER" /s > \junk.txt
notepad \junk.txt

That might explain why it thinks it is invalid.

 

I will upload the reg file from my XP in the next post.  Same drill as before, right click and extract all then right click and merge.
