What Is Status.msi?


I keep getting a pop-up that says the feature you are trying to use in on a network that is unavailable. Then a popup that says wait while windows configures status, then a pop-up that says please reinstall using a valid copy of the installation package "status. Msi" then it starts this whole procedure all over again. When i reboot the same things happens. I can't get rid of this. I don't know what program to reinstall that will get rid of this problem. I am not on a network. The only thing that is used in conjunction with another used is the router and modem.

Lost Administrator Status

I stupidly followed some instructions i found on line so that i wouldn't have to type my administrator password each time i logged on but in the process, i can no longer access the administrator account. I am now logged on as a guest account. When i go to user accounts and try to "manage another account" to switch to the administrator account, the dialog box asks me to type in the administrator password but there is nowhere to do so. I don't seem to have any way to access the administrator account. Is there any way to fix this short of reinstalling windows 7?

Remove Styling On Printer Status Dialog

Just had a pretty hideous user experience which is a shame given how great windows 7 has been. I've just installed a printer (hp f4272). I didn't bother with the hp cd, just connected and let windows load the drivers it required. This worked fine.

The problem occurred within the. For want of a better word i'll call the printer options window. If i go to start -> devices and printers -> hp deskjet f2000 series rather than seeing the current status of print jobs i have an extra in between window that gives me printing and scanning options.

The first time i entered that window just below the address bar breadcrumb was a message asking if i'd like to update the information (sorry i can't remember the error as i was expecting windows to ask if i wanted the driver updated), to the link to the windows help associated with the message search in help for "automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware" and choose the top option. After clicking on this option it didn't as i expected update the driver but downloaded a hideous theme which as removed 1/2 of the options from the window and added an advert for hp. Image of what it looks like now:

I appreciate that this is an issue with hp not microsoft and could be quite a good feature if not abused by a vendor like this. What i'd like to do is uninstall this theme, the problem is i can't work out where to do it. I can't find any options in devices and printers, there isn't anything within add / remove programs either (yes i've turn on the option to see windows updates). Any ideas?

Ide Channel - Dma/pio Status Check

I have been trying to check the dma/pio status of my system, but i couldn't find anything that mentions primary/secondary channel under "ide ata/atapi controllers" in device manager. From what i read in various forums, that is the way to do it, and also i noticed that a few people couldn't find the "primary/secondary channel" thingy as well. (But i couldn't find the solution to the issue)

My problem is that a couple usb ports (2 out of 4) that i normally used went slow when i transfer data to/from external hdd. Now i've been switching to the other 2 of the usb ports, and i could see the difference in transfer rate. This happened before with my xp system, but i could access the primary/secondary channel and switched them all back to dma, which is something i can't do now with my other system of vista. So now i would really like to check on that, and i need some help to do so.

My system:
Windows vista (up-to-date with all the windows update)
Intel core 2 duo p9600 2. 67ghz
4 gb ram
Nvidia geforce gtx 260 - 1 gb memory
Realtek/creative soundblaster

320 gb hdd (well, it's almost full, leaving about 20 gb of free space, but the problem i mentioned up there already happened when i still got 60 gb of free space like a couple months ago) it would be great if someone can help me enlighten my days here. I'm not a computer geek, but definitely not an illiterate as well.

Msi Installer For Adobe Program Fails

I am having problems installing a new adobe program (creative suite 5) on my windows 7 x 64 computer and the installation logs plus some testing i have done point to a failing msi in the deployment package. I've written on the adobe forum and am trying to get tech support, but wonder if in the meanwhile, there is anything i can do about the msi to fix it?

The msi is named: microsoft_vc80_crt_x86_x64. One remedy for installation problems on the adobe forum was to run each msi separately, then repair by right-click, then uninstall. After this, it seemed to help. So, i tried (first 3 worked ok) and came across the above noted msi: when i ran it failed and would not complete. The 1935 error message: hresult 0x80073712 and the (apparently essential) component that it is failing to install: 844efba7-1c24-93b2-a01f-c8b3b9a1e8e.

I checked that all installer permissions are set ok. My installer version is 5, which seems ok. This non-networked computer is used by me, so i am the administrator with admin rights. I also tried the same installer in another, separate adobe package, and the same failure occurred. Is there anything i can do to get this installer to complete properly, install the component?

Every time i try to run a particular . Msi i get this. "Installation directory must be on a local hard drive". Its not the msi as ive tested it on another computer. The msi is a plug-in tool called t-splines by autodesk. Ive also tried older versions with the same error, things i've tried so far:

I uninstalled 7zip which i already had, then reinstalled with the . Msi from the website to test if it was all msi, however it actually worked. I was looking around for other .

Error - Admin Policy Is Set To Not Allow To Install .msi Programs

Can't install programs (. Msi?), And the error message says that it's because the admin policy is set to not allow it. But i'm the admin, i've recently installed windows 7, and, as the title says, there are some programs i can't install. What i've noticed is that they are "msi" files (i think) - don't know if this means anything or not. I get an error message (red†"x")†that says that the system admin doesn't allow such a file to be installed, but i'm the sys admin. I took a gander at the admin tools (control panel), but i don't understand most of what's there.

Msi 780-g65 Motherboard Problem On Win 7 64-bit

I have been having issues with a motherboard, that was only showing up after i installed windows 7 pr 64 bit. I dual booted with xp pro 32 bit. The motherboard is a msi 780-g65 and has a phenom ii x4 965 be and 8 gb ddr3 ram. I seemed to be going fine for a while when i only had xp pro on it. I am not exactly sure what my technician said the problem was, they just changed out the motherboard (i then rma'd the bad one). Thank goodness i did buy another board, now it is under warranty. Let's hope they'll honor the warranty. I have decided to make sure my room is real cool and that this time all the fans are working. I think it may have been over heated, which is their fault. I asked to plug in the fands and use this lcd controller i bought from them. Does anyone know, or is there any intel on this sort of thing? I know this is a software forum, but i can't seem to find anything specific about the motherboards interactions with the os. I am looking to msi, but, you know how manufacturers can be.

*.msi Not A Valid Win32 Application Error When Installing A Security Program

Whenever i try and install a security program i get the following: "*. Msi not a valid win 32 application". Noboby seems able to help. Vendors are all blaming another vendor. Meanwhile, i do not have any security on my computer. I am not terribly computer literate so please bear with me. I have rolled back, tried to run as an administrator, have downloaded software umpteen times (to satisfy vendors). This has something to do with microsoft installers. Anyone else had this problem?
