Windows instaler

By localdave ·

"I keep getting this error.

I have tryed reinstalling the "installer" using all the steps on the microsoft website. 1. using msiexec /regserver
2. (ren msi.dll msi.old /ren msiexec.exe msiexec.old/ ren msihnd.dll msihnd.old)
renaming and reinstalling Windows Installer 3.1 v2

did not solve the problem.

The problem looks to only effect those that use the "msiexec" installer.

I want to solve this problem without rebooting my OS."

Please help

You keep getting what error?

by seanferd In reply to Windows instaler

You didn't say.

Also, it may be quite unlikely a fix will work without rebooting. You could try logging out and back in, but there are files that will not be replaced without a reboot.

Also, best to ask this as a Question rather than to post it as a Discussion.
