Cannot install & Uninstall

By jsarinana ·
Windows Server 2003,
When I try to install or Uninstall a program I have to reboot because it shows that it is doing nothing. When I reboot, at shutdown I get a message that Install or Uninstall is not completed properly. ? ? ?

try reinstalling the latest windows installer, if that doesnt help try to
run sfc.exe and have windows check the files

Close all programs and try installing then, see if that helps.

from the 2003 server just go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
scan the computer for updates and you should find that windows installer will be in the updates it finds.

Well, my problem was a program called tapeware 6.3 wrong version for server 2003, I installed Tapeware 7.0 which installed over 6.3. I then installed Tapeware 7.0 all is fine except when I shutdown I still get a "End Program DDE Server Windows" the pops up and I cannot shutdown until I end this program. IF I go to M.S. updates no there is no updates for me, thanks anyway. Any suggestion on this shutdown issue would be appricated. Also I don't have any bad messages in my event viewer.
