im trying to install a program and keep getting "error 1720" - now a few weeks ago i had a virus that nearly corrupted my whole windows folder exe's etc. but i managed to recover by installing another Windows on another drive, and repacing the infected files with those from the new windows installation (concentrating just on windows foder, windows/system32 and windows/system32/dllcache)
To fix this, ive already tried reinstalling windows scripts, and windows installer numerous times, both in normal and safe mode.
I tried running the installer on a fresh windows made on the same partion and it installed perfectly, leading me to believe that maybe the virus had damaged a file in the windows folder that i was trying to fix.
i really dont want to have to reinstall everything on the new windows partion, as that would mean reinstalling alot of my programs.
My question is - what are the core component files required to run windows installer and windows scripts - so that i could copy them from the clean windows folder to this older one.
Also if you have any other solutions they would be much appreciated.
