Renaming exe files

By lhallett51 ·
Two years ago, I had renamed my msi.exe to msi.old and had replaced it with a file from Tech Republic. (my OS is XP Pro on a Dell Inspiron 640M, 2 gig memory and a 1.8 Ghz processor), now I am trying to download and install the HTC Sync for my Android phone and of course it needs the MSI file. The windowns installer will not do its job as it can't access the file (newest version of win installer 4.??). How can I or should I go back and re name the MSI.OLD or in fact is it poossible or advisable to do so?

Just download and install the latest installer.

That should take care of the problem. Whether the original installer, or this putative TR download, the Installer would be out of date.
