I was attempting to download .Net Framework and during the install process I received an error 1719. It said I may be trying to download in safe mode, but I am not. I Googled around and found the following and would like to know is this sounds like a logical fix and if so how would I go about renaming the "msiexec and DLL's" they are speaking of.

Error 1719 occurs when the msiexec.exe program becomes disassociated with .msi files. Under Windows XP x32 this is usually fixed with rebooting into safe mode, renaming the msiexec and DLL's and letting Windows File Protection reinstall them



Any other suggestions for a fix would be appreciated too.

Thanks!

Thanks, garmanma


I like the instructions you provided.

I need to ask another question here and it is probably something I should know, but I would rather ask and sound dumb than not ask and screw up.

When following the instructions you linked to it says to make sure and back up the registry before proceeding. Now my understanding from reading other things is Windows XP Home cannot be backed-up in a normal fashion. In that case does the restore points serve the same purpose anytime you are fooling around in the registry.

We probably have a tutorial on it but I can't locate it. This is the explanation I use, if it's not too confusing


"Click Start, and then click Run. In the Run box, type “regedit” (without “) , and then click OK.
On the File menu, click Export. In the Save in box, select the boxes at the bottom according to whether you want to export all or only selected branches of the registry.

Next select a location in which to save the backup .reg file. In the File name box, type a file name, and then click Save.


How to Restore the Registry

To restore registry keys that you exported, double-click the .reg file that you saved."

Here's the Bleeping Computer mini-guide.

How To Back Up The Registry

Personally, I prefer to use ERUNT to backup the registry.
