Problems with Windows Installer service

Hi!!! I tried to update my laptop, but I can't. I check the services and I
found that the Windows Installer is stopped, so I tried to star it, but it
sent an error, the error 3. It said the Windows Installed can't found the
specific path.

Someone could help me??? I need to update my laptop.

RE: Problems with Windows Installer service

If the Windows Installer Service is failing to start, then I would first
try reinstalling the Windows Installer from:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...2fc-5f56-4a38-
b838-de776fd4138c&displaylang=en

If that doesn't work, then make sure you do a virus scan to make sure you
don't have anything that is preventing the service from starting. You can
do this from:

No, that package wont install on Vista. Can you try re-registering the dll
regsvr32.exe msi.dll

To regegistry the DLL, just go to start, then run, and type
regsvr32.exe msi.dll
then hit OK

RE: Problems with Windows Installer service

I tried to re-registry the DLL, but when I did that the system sent me the
next message:

The "msi.dll" module was loaded, but it produced an error in the call to
DllRegisterServer (code error: 0x80040201)

Could you tell me what does it mean?

Regards

Without its context? Not much:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc704587.aspx

(Live Search for
msi (0x80040201 OR 80040201) site:microsoft.com
)

<quote>
0x80040201 EVENT_E_ALL_SUBSCRIBERS_FAILED
An event was unable to invoke any of the subscribers.
</quote>


You could try getting more information about a failure in regsvr32.exe
by using DependencyWalker's Profile command on that module
and executing the failing regsvr32.exe command through it.


Good luck

Open it. (E.g. Run... depends.exe)
Press Ctrl-o. Navigate to regsvr32.exe. Press F7.
Enter your program arguments, e.g. msi.dll. Press Enter.

What happens?

Either way you will see a trace of the calls to the dependent modules
in the "Log window". Select the Log window, press Ctrl-a, Ctrl-c,
and then paste your log into a new Notepad window for analysis.

BTW it is a good idea to pause a few seconds before responding to a
prompt for an error message which regsvr32.exe might put up. That way
you can detect where you paused by seeing a gap in the timestamps.
Then you can home in on where in the log your problem symptom occurred
and see what was happening just before that.


Good luck

Robert

Re: Problems with Windows Installer service

Hi Robert,

Do you remember the message that it produced last time, well when the
DependencyWalker finished to do the procedure that you gave me it throw it
again:

MSG: The "msi.dll" module was loaded, but it produced an error in the call
to DllRegisterServer (code error: 0x80040201)

When it started to check de modules, it show the next message:

Warning: At least one module has an unresolved import due to a missing
export function in a delay-load dependent module.

I have the notepad file where I pasted the logs but I really don't
understand it.

What could I do with it? The problem is still in my lap and I can't work
with it. :(

Please, please help me!!!

Good. That's why you are doing this simulation. Did you remember to
pause a few seconds before replying to that message? Then there would be
a noticeable gap in the timestamps somewhere in the log. Anything just
before that would be related to your error symptom.

That's probably normal. Ignore that for now and focus on getting some
details about your error code symptom.
