we are experiencing difficulties when trying to install applications with msi.  each time we launch the installer we receive the following error.

any assistance on getting this resolved would be great.

we have tried sfc with no corruptions found. DSIM with the same results.

 

thanks in advance.

Some things to try;

  • %windir%\system32\msiexec.exe /unregister
  • %windir%\system32\msiexec.exe /register
  • %windir%\syswow64\msiexec.exe /unregister
  • %windir%\syswow64\msiexec.exe /register
  • sfc /scannow
  • reboot
