Error 31 - Cannot Install Network Drivers - Installation Was Interrupted

Cannot install drivers for networking, error 31, goes 90% complete then "installation was interrupted". This morning i turned on my dell 1640xps laptop and got a screen resolution like 'safe mode' and a dialogue box showing progress of updating every driver i had. Had the machine 6 months and never seen this before. After the install my network drivers were reported as unsuccessful.

Used another machine to access internet and download new drivers but as the installation neared completion it reported an error 31, windows installer was interrupted, no driver installed. I've been working at this for 10 hours now and finally restored my machine to yesterday's config. What program did this? Something in windows update?

No Programs Opening In Win 7

I'm having a problem that is truly bizarre. I installed windows 7 professional and immediately set to work installing some of the drivers and software i would need. I used firefox to install most of the others, rebooted for each, and then i tried to open some of these up.

Most of the programs had more or less the same problem: they don't show up. No windows, task bar presence or systray icons. So i tried reinstalling, but the installers won't work either. The "invisible" programs all appear in the processes tab of the task manager when i try to launch them, load two or three mb into memory, and then stop, never making progress beyond that.

I'm at a loss - i can't think of anything that could cause this. So far, i've found that firefox, pidgin, avast! Antivirus, vistabootpro, the razer barracuda sound card configuration utility and even windows media player aren't opening (though sound works fine). Ie, windows media center and the task manager are so far the only programs i've been able to open. Everything seemed to work fine two or three reboots ago. I can't figure out what it could be - i uninstalled the antivirus software and disabled uac thinking that could be it, but still no luck, and now uninstaller don't even load.

Compressed File Opening And Icon

I  changed the default program used to open  compressed zip files  (in windows 7 home premium 64-bit). Lso able to change to any programme icon from the open with command , - so zip files have changed , not opening correctly and all  attachments have changed to fit the icon programme. So the compressed zip files now can appear as generic windows explorer icons rather than the previous compressed folder icon (looks like a folder with a zipper). Is there any way to restore the compressed zip icon and functionality?

Problem Saving / Opening Files In Explorer & Programs

I have problem saving and opening files in windows explorer and third-party programs. I've been having this problem for a couple of months now and it's very annoying for example, when i use the snipping tool in windows 7 the files will not save so i have to take a print screen of that and open it with more software. Also, when i download files in firefox and other things, clicking 'open file location' does absolutely nothing. I assume these two issues are related as they started occurring around the same time.

Ie7 Blank Pop Ups When Opening A File

I am a tech services employee, and i have a very interesting situation with one of our users here. Originally, the problem was that when the user would go to download a file from an internet site (usually, it was an office document), ie would freeze and crash on him. We decided to upgrade him to version 7 of ie (ie 8 at this time is not approved for installation on our corporate pcs because they are not compatible with some of our web applications).

The installation was successful, and the user is able to download and open the documents from the internet, however, when he does, and extra blank window appears and does not automatically go away. It's more of an inconvenience at this point, but i was wondering if this issue can be fixed?

Program Install Error - A File That Is Required Cannot Be Installed

Program install error: a file that is required cannot be installed because the cabinet file setup has an invalid digital signature. Cabinet file setup 11. Cab has an invalid digital signature. When trying to install a software program on my windows 7 netbook, an installer information panel stated "a file that is required cannot be installed because the cabinet file setup 11. Cab has an invalid digital signature. This may indicate that the cabinet file is corrupt".

Thus the program would not load. Is the problem with the software or with the windows 7 netbook? If the netbook is the problem, can the faulty cabinet file be removed and replaced with a correct file? If so, how?

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.

After Win7 Install Should I Install Programs Then Backed Up Files ?

After windows 7 complete install. Should i install the programs then the backed up files or the backed up files then the programs. Windows 7 complete install. Should i install the programs then the backed up  files or the backed up files then the programs. I saw where microsoft recommended installing the backed up files first then the programs so the programs know where the files are located.

I would think installing the programs first would be better to minimize defragmentation. Os then programs, then files.

Installation File Won't Run Without Iso Burning Software

Problem installing downloaded version of windows 7 professional on a netbook running xp with no external dvd drive - installation file won't run without iso burning software. I downloaded windows 7 professional to install on my netbook running windows xp - the help indicated that this would be possible and would avoid the need for an external dvd drive but because it needs to be a clean install the file downloaded is a . Iso file which i guess needs to be burnt to a cd to run?

Is there any way of getting round this without getting an external dvd drive, possibly by using alcohol120% to mount it on a virtual drive - i guess this could be a problem with a clean install, so would it work if i put it on my external hard drive?

Custom Installation Vs Upgrade Install

I'm planning on upgrading my vista 64 bit to windows 7 using my upgrade discs i got from hp. I'd like to make a clean installation rather than an upgrade install but there is a warning in the manual that if i choose to custom install, i may need to reinstall drivers that are not included in my discs. What does this mean? Does this mean that if i custom install windows 7, i may need to download programs in order to run my mouse, keyboard etc? (Sorry i'm an no computer techie).

Also just in general, is there a big performance difference between custom install and upgrade install?

Where Do I Install My Programs To?

I am building a simple installer for some software that i want to install on some of the computers here at work. I'm using a very simple open source installation program, and it wants me to set the default installation directory where the software i have written should be installed. The computers at work are a mix of windows xp, vista and soon windows 7 computers. I have been installing to c:program files before, and that's been working fine.

But since vista came out, its been a bit unpredictable. I understand there is something to do with 'virtualization' of folders, which i don't really understand, and i also believe that this has all changed again with windows 7.

Is there some 'best practice' guide for where to install programs to?  The users who will be installing the software are just regular computer users (ie. Not administrators) and therefore i need a solution that works on all platforms and is safe and won't create security issues.

Cant Install Any New Programs

For some reason every time i go to install something new, ie quick time, java or itune, my computer is telling me i cant install something until i complete the installation currently in progress. The thing is, i have no idea what is in progress, and have had this problem for almost a month. I*ve restarted my computer and even done system restores to try and clear it up. I also cannot uninstall programs. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to pinpoint exactly where or what the installation may be. Or if there is something i can do to cancel all current installations.

How Do I Install Programs As Admin ?

How do i install as admin? I tried installing a software but it says i cannot install because i don't have enough privileged and must be logged in as admin. Now i know when i used vista this was easy because all i had to do was right click the install file and then run as admin and then i'd have enough privileges and could install the program. However now when i use it it's a different story. When i right click the installation item there is nothing.
