Finally a little progress!

 

Can we install anything?  Installer Cleanup Utility perhaps?  Filehippo updatechecker?

Try these two again:
 
msiexec.exe  /unregister
msiexec  /regserve

Then see what happens when you type:

 

msiexec

 

and hit Enter.

That is what I expect to see so something is working.  

 

I wonder if the link between .msi and the installer is broken?

 

Right click on start and select Explore then Tools, Folder Options, File Types.  Scroll down until you get to MSI in the left column.  Click on it then on Advanced.

 

It should say Windows Installer Package for each of the Install, Uninstall and Repair options.  Click on Install then on Edit.  Actions should have &Install.

 

Under Application used... it should say

 

c:\windows\system32\msiexec.exe /i "%1" %*

 

Use DDE should be checked.  Application: should be msiexec

 

Topic: System

 

Is that what it says?

Click on New then  put in MSI for the File Extension and OK

 

now click on your new msi and Advanced and put Windows Installer Package in the top box.  Then click on New.

 

Under Action put &Install

 

Under Application used... put in

c:\windows\system32\msiexec.exe  /i  "%1"  %*

(I used two spaces to make it easier to see where 1 space goes.)

 

Use DDE should be checked.  Application: should be msiexec

 

Topic: System

 

OK.

 

Then repeat the New for &Uninstall

 

but use:

 

c:\windows\system32\msiexec.exe  /x  "%1"  %*

 

(same as above but /x instead of /i)

 

and

 

Re&pair

 

c:\windows\system32\msiexec.exe  /f "%1"  %*

 

(This one has /f)

 

Once you do that OK out of the Edit File Type and close Folder Options.  Then try your install again.

Look in C:\Windows and see if you see a file riched20.dll or RICHED32.DLL.  If you find it delete it.  Then try the permissions again.
