RE: Windows Installer
I am receiving the same error. I see that you posted this early in the year
but do not see any help or suggestions that you may have received. Have you
been able to fix this problem? If so, can you share some info with me? Thank
you for your time!
Re: Windows Installer
|I have the same problem, how do you fixed?
I went several rounds with Microsoft support since they offer free
support for Windows Update on Vista. I finally got it fixed, but I had
to do this:
Please Note: though this operation will not delete any installed
programs or files, we may still have to reinstall the device drivers
after the upgrade.
1. Start the computer and access Windows Vista.
2. Insert the Windows Vista DVD in the computer's DVD drive.
3. Use one of the following procedures, as appropriate
.. If Windows automatically detects the DVD, the Install now screen
appears. Click Install now.
.. If Windows does not automatically detect the DVD, follow these steps:
a. Click Start, click Run, type Drive:\setup.exe, and then click OK.
Note: Drive is the drive letter of the computer's DVD drive.
b. Click Install now.
4. When you reach the "Which type of installation to you want" screen,
click Upgrade to upgrade the system files of Windows Vista.
After that, please try to update again.
This worked for me, but I had three problems:
1. I had purchased my Vista upgrade on-line, so I had to figure out how
to create a working installation DVD from the downloaded files.
2. I had to install all updates again, about 50 of them after having
performed the procedure described above. A lot of work for three
updates, but probably worth it.
3. A few programs and devices didn't work right after this upgrade. For
instance I had to reninstall my anti virus and firewall software. A few
other programs also needed to be reinstalled. Now everything works fine
Personally I think this has to do with the interaction between Windows
Update and System Restore. I did a system restore at some point and got
this update problem after that. This is just my gut feeling. Microsoft
support did not come up with any explanation as to how these errors
I fixed this problem after about a week and a half of dealling with the lack of help from HP. I went to my spybot s&d tools menu, startmenu and unchecked any HP photosmart and HP share to web programs. I had just removed the programs connected to a HP photosmart printer when the instantsharedevices started looping my installer. computer has started normally and shutdown normally for several days now, without the installer loop. good luck
Dopo un p? di casini col mio PC e un ripristino di Windows ho in
continuazione questo problema, quando ad es. parte il PC o quando
cerco di fare alcuni update di Win Update:
servizio winopws installer non disponibile. ? possibile che un'altra
applicazione stia utilizzando il servizio. completare eventulai
installazioni in corso o riavviare il computer, quindi eseguire
nuovamente il programma di installazione
Come lo risolvo?
Dove posso scaricare Windows Installer? e come si rimuove?
