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?

How To Change Compatibility Setting Of Msi Installer?

I am trying to install an msi for an application called "encryption plus" from guardian edge. When i right click the msi and choose compatibility, i am presented with the check box to select "run this program in compatibility mode for:"but the drop down menu contains no items. It is an empty list. When i click it, it does not show windows vista, windows xp sp3, etc. , Etc. Like it should. If i try to do this on any other setup exe, it comes up fine. This only is happening with . Msi setup files.

*.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?

Program Installer Quits

I try to install omni page 17 from a new cd and the installer quits. I get the message: "this installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid windows installer package. "
I have tried everything on the forums except for reinstalling windows 7. I checked "run" and "manual" in the services for msiexec.exe. I created another user account. I am the administrator of everything on my dell, xps420.

I think there are other suggestions that i also followed as well. Nothing works. Omnipage does not have a download option (that i can tell); i have to use the cd. I've read other completely frustrated peoples' forum posts (like the post of "dnoejfg", who is right on). What is one to do?

Cannot Open 64-bit Adobe Program

I bought a new dell xps 8100 64 bit machine. Then i installed my adobe cs4 and lightroom 2. Neither one will open. I am getting run around from dell and adobe techs. Both says its the others problem. Both want me to spent an additional 200 dollars, for software help, after spending 1000 on computer and 1400 for adobe products. I have used both on my old win xp system with no problems ever.

Now buy this great new high tech computer, 64 bit, and now can not use either program. Has anyone else experience a problem with this issue? If so, have you resolved it? Please help if you can. I have already spent over 5 hours on telephone between the two companies since i received my new computer 3 days ago.

Win 7 Fails To Boot - Autochk Program Not Found, Skipping Autocheck

A couple weeks ago, i bought a new 7200rpm hard drive for my laptop to replace the 5400rpm one it came with. Cloned the disk, stuck it in. This laptop had a windows vista 32 bit partition, a windows 7 64 bit partition, and an extended partition with several linux ext3 partitions. I had kept vista around in case i needed to use something that didn't have 64 bit drivers (mostly just ti connect), but now that i had two copies of it (i haven't yet reformatted the old drive) i figured last weekend that i'd delete the vista partition on the new drive and extend my 7 partition backwards to reclaim some space.

I knew that some of the boot files were on the vista partition, and sure enough it didn't boot after deleting that partition so after i deleted it i ran the windows 7 system recovery to install the boot files to the 7 partition. Rebooted, so far so good. Then i tried to extend the partition leftward to fill in the space that the vista partition used, but after rebooting i keep getting this error:

"Autochk program not found, skipping autocheck"

After which it seems to blue-screen for a split second before rebooting. The files are more or less all there, from what i can tell. I've tried using system recovery from the 7 install disk to no avail. It just says no problems found. Any ideas what could be causing this problem? A lot of results online mention security software like norton causing this problem, but i've never used any of the programs mentioned. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Worst case though, i'll just re-clone the old hard drive and then copy over the documents i edited in the intermediate two weeks.

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.

I am installing a msi on windows 7 from a user account. It doesn't get installed properly since it don't have administrator rights. I want to run my msi as administrator.

Can we use orca tool for this problem? How can i use it.

.msi Installation Directory Must Be On A Local Hard Drive

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:

Sys restore
Safe mode
Right click - take ownership

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 . Msi install software just to test it but can't find any. If you could point me in the direction of some . Msi files which i can test on my rig. Edit, just tried a few other msi's i had on my computer and i get the error 1723.

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.

Installer Language Conflict

Just moved up to 64 bits windows 7. I have the dutch language version. I am trying to install msxml2 sp2 (msxml. Msi). One can choose from a number of languages, but not dutch, so i choose english (which is what i always did previously, and without problems). As soon as i click on install, my computer freezes up, and the only option is to turn off the power switch.

I have noticed that with other programmes (for example abbyy fine reader 9. 0) where one can choose the language (including dutch), the same thing happens if i choose a language other that dutch (fair enough), but surely we are allowed to use the msxml package? Any suggestions?Ideas:programs you are having problems with error messages recent changes you made to your computer what you have already tried to fix the problem.

Installer For Service Pack 3

A long time ago when i received the automatic update for service pack 3 and attempted to install it, the update failed (error 1706: file proret. Msi not found). I did not have the disc that it wanted me to insert to find the file and my attempts at finding help on the web failed as well. Ever since, when i open up excel, windows installer jumps up and attempts to install service pack 3. If i wait for it to fail i can then try again and succeed in opening up my spreadsheets but i do have to wait for the installer to do its thing. Is there anyway to stop this from happening in the first place?  Do i dare just uninstall windows installer?

Installer Error Code 12

I just purchased a new computer with windows 7, and i've been having trouble installing new software. I was able to get around the issue for my first program, because windows allowed me to complete the installation and then detected and then adjusted settings to fix the error. However, for the second program (labview by national instruments), i cannot complete the installation. I get the error message: error: windows sdk function returned an error. (Error code -12)

It appears just before installation begins and then again after a few steps. At the second appearance of the error message, the installation window closes. I found some documentation about this error code in windows xp. My understanding is that the error message appears when the windows installer is corrupted. However, i cannot find documentation for restoring the windows installer in windows 7.

Does this appear to be a problem with the windows installer? How can i fix it?
