Error - Another Installation Is Already In Progress

"another installation is already in progress" error message preventing installation of windows updates and other programs. I am having the recurring problem, usually comes up when windows update has run, of the error message "another installation is already in progress". This is interfering with my ability to install other software.

I have had this problem in the past and solved it by choosing a selective start up in ms config but that is no longer working. Is there another way to solve this issue? I would also like to know why this is happening. Is it a conflict on my end or a software issue that is common?

Wsus Deployment Progress Monitor

We have just started using the new wsus 3. 0 for a month now and we're having a problem. We have different groups of servers(windows server 2000, 2003, 2008) and a group of workstations(windows xp). We want to update our workstations every weekend so we want wsus synchronization to synchronize automatically with microsoft to get new updates. And we update our servers in a period of 6 weeks.

When we are updating our servers we want to see the status of the servers changing to 0 updates needing, but everytime new updates come in from synchronization with microsoft there are coming new updates to the servers status with the status of needed, so we dont have a clear view of the status of our servers.

The solution we are currently using is to stop the synchronization between wsus 3. 0 and microsoft so we don't get any new needed updates for our servers in time of our 6weeks update period. The downside of this solution is that our workstations wont be able to get new updates for a period of 6 weeks. Our question is does anyone else has the same problem and have a better solution for this?

Error On Installation Key

I got a new hard drive today, and without thinking i just loaded my windows 7 disc for the os. My computer originally came with windows xp. I tried to put in my 7 activation key, but the system said this key only worked as an upgrade. I then tried to put in my xp activation key, and the system said it wasn't a windows 7 key. Is there some way that i can activate my windows without reformatting and reinstalling through two operating systems? I have my keys for the original xp and my upgrade vista and 7 systems.

Itunes Installation Error

I used pcmover to move programs and files from an old xp unit to a new windows7 unit. Itunes will not work on the new unit. When i try to update itunes it tells me "this itunes installer is intended for 32-bit versions of windows. Please download and install the 64-bit itunes installer instead. "  No matter what i do to uninstall the old version, i still get the same message. If i try to reinstall the new version, i get the same message. I have tried to remove all apple software through
The control panel's uninstall process. Nothing works. Can you help me totally remove this software (and hidden files) so i can reinstall the 64-bit version and resume use of my ipod?

Installation Package Error

After using windows upgrade from vista to 7 (clean install). I am constantly getting this error 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 package. This happens when trying to install programs that i have checked with the program makers website and have confirmed they are compatibility with windows 7. All i can find in searching for this error are references to vista or that this error is somehow connected to microsoft office which is not one of the programs i am trying to install. Can anyone help please?

Cfs3 Installation Error

I just bought a copy of cfs3 so i could run bhh:off, which requires cfs3. I have been unsuccessful in completing installation of the simulation on my vista 64-bit sli pc.

I returned the first copy of the game since the error message referenced a possible corrupted cab6. Cab file. On the replacement copy, i got the same error. The error message also recommended that i restart my computer which i did and alluded to a possible inadequate swap file size. I have two 1tb sata hard drives, 8gb of ram, and twin geforce9500 1gb video cards running in sli. Hardware should not be a limitation.

I went into control panel, system and upgraded the virtual memory setting from 8gb to 13gb (system recommended 12+gb). This still didn't work. I called microsoft support for a live technician and she informed me that support for cfs3 expired in apr 2008. I looked down the list of cfs3 forum items and didn't see an installation issue/solution listed.

Error 1628 Failed To Complete Installation

When i try to install a game patch i get this error :

I did this solution but it didn't help me out :

First: control panel - not using classic display

2. Click performance and maintenance

3. Administrative tools

4. Click local security policy

5. Then click software restriction policies.

6. When i did this there weren't any set. So you have to click action tab to create them. When you do so click onto enforcement.

Error - Access Denied - Driver Installation Stops

Hp all in one printer driver installation fails, on a clean installed windows 7 (32 bit), manual driver installation stops with "access denied" error message. I have a clean installed windows 7 32 bit. (Not upgraded from vista).

Firstly, hp all in one device photosmart c4280 has been installed automatically and worked fine. After several weeks, it's printing function disappaerad and an error message, saying the driver is missing appeared. Now i can manually scan from windows scan, but whatever i have done, i can not let windows 7 to install the appropriate driver for my printer.

I have used the latest driver software from hp; deleted the printer from devices and restarted and reinstalled. But every time it installs all hp devices but fails for hpphotosmart c4200 series. My user account has admin previleges, already tried with the local admin user, or run the hp driver software in admin mode by right clicking.

Lastly, whenever i try to install the printer driver at print management iu, it starts then halts with an error message "access denied". Printer works fine with another vista machine in my house. So no problem for the printer. I also tried to use the following article, which is actually for the machines which has been upgraded from vista, but it does not work as well.

I doubt, an update from windows update caused this as referenced in the following article for vista upgraded machines. Kb975891 hp multifunction printers and hp full feature software or hp basic driver solutions do not work as expected after a computer upgrades from windows vista to windows 7. Would you be so kind to help me? On the internet i have found hundreds of similar problems with windows 7 and hp printers but couldn't locate any solution yet.

Win 7 Installation Error Code Of Stop 0x000000ed

I bought two copies of windows 7 ultimate and installed the two on my laptop and a friend's laptop. The problem with my laptop now is that i believe a virus managed to get through my firewall, which made it shut down and restart and after i logged in in safe mode, it said that windows recovered from an unexpected shutdown. Later, i turned my laptop off and got back on it a few hours later, and it loads the gui screen, then after that, a blue screen with and error code of stop 0x000000ed and a line of numbers. Then it restarts itself.

I tried to reinstall windows, but every time that i do, it either holds on to the starting windows screen or to a black screen with just a mouse pointer. I just left the my computer on all last night and woke up this morning with that black screen and mouse pointer. I even tried installing vista from a friend, but that didn't work either.

I have already gone through all advanced options for windows 7, but none of them work and they just end up at that bluescreen.could it be a hadr drive issues?

Error - Not Enough Free Space To Store Temporary Installation Files

Not enough free space error when i have 190 gig free on drive c? When upgrading from vista hp 64 bit to win 7 hp 64 bit, following the "checking compatibility" function of the upgrade process i get the following error message:

There is not enough free space to store temporary windows installation files. Try using disk cleanup, uninstall old programs, or move files to an external location such as a cd, dvd, or external hard drive.

I have done that, moved all pics, music, uninstalled itunes and done everything the program recommended. My c drive is 286 gig and it has 190 gig of free space. Clearly, there is plenty of room. So what's up with this error message?

I have tried turning off my firewall, manually downloading the update and installing it, nothing works. I don't want to turn off the automatic update completely but i will soon if i can't get any help. I can't find this error code anywhere on the internet.
