Unable to install Windows Live Essentials 2011 and error code 0X80040609
  

I have installed windows 7 on my system along with Windows Live Essentials 2011 as well. I have issue in Windows Live Essentials 2011 because, when I am trying to update it then I am getting an error on the updation. The error message shows me “error 0x80040609; source= i386”. The Windows Live Essentials 2011 did update till 60% but after that this error message comes up. Can anyone tell me how do I fix this issue? Thanks

This problem occurs when your components are corrupted in Windows Live Essentials 2011. So therefore to solve this issue you need to uninstall the Windows Live Essentials 2011 and again you need to reinstall the it in your pc. To do this click on the control panel through start button. Now go to the programs and select uninstall a program. Under uninstall a program select the Windows Live Essentials 2011. Now click on the Remove button and then click on uninstall. After uninstalling and deleting the Windows Live Essentials 2011, you need to restart your system. After restarting the system install the new copy of the Windows Live Essentials 2011.

You can also try to uninstall Windows Live Essentials through the CMD line parameter. To do that click on Start > All Programs > Accessories. After that right click on command prompt and then choose Run as Administrator. Now run the below commands to uninstall Windows Live Essentials:
(64 bit) "c:\program files (x86)\windows live\installer\wlarp.exe" /cleanup:all /q
(32 bit) "c:\program files\windows live\installer\wlarp.exe" /cleanup:all /q

At the end, you will get a dialog box that will say that the uninstallation is completed. After that reinstall it again from this link - http://wl.dlservice.microsoft.com/do...9412/wlarp.exe

You will need to find a folder in c:\ Program Files\Common Files\ Windows Live\. cache and delete it. Note that this directory is actually hidden, so you need to make sure that you the check mark options in the folder menu for "Show hidden files and folders" or else you can also use a good 3rd party file manager like Total Commander to delete this file. After this, try to install Windows Live Essentials again.
