Hey guys :|
Once again my computer that I just bought in the last few months is giving me issues. Orginally I had a problem where the computer was telling me that I didn't have admin permissions to install various programs on my computer. Currently I'm trying to put my version of office xp on it and I am not having success. The problem with admin permissions I fixed of all places in the registry (which is the only thing I did there but at least it worked). When I didn't exactly know what the problem was, there were various places that said your windows installer could be corrupt or something to that effect. AGain following instructions on renaming the old msiexec.exe to msiexec.old seemed to be a good idea. I downloaded the newest version of windows installer on my system and didn't understand why office still failed to install. So randomly while i'm looking at posts from people about the issues they were having, knowing they are case specific and did not do any of them, i found myself completely and utterly confused. The only thing I found that was any use was how to look at the eventviewer which has displayed the windows installer errors
Yay, I feel as though I've advanced somehow but still, I don't know what to do about it. SO, my computer specs are: AMD Athlon 64 3800+ 2.4 Ghz, 768 DDR2, 160 SATA HD. It's a refurb. I have Windows Revolution on it (which was installed by someone else thusly I don't have the cd for it)
The event viewer came up with this to say about the windows installer issue: Warning MsiInstaller: Failed to connect to server. Error: 0x80040154
and I also have this for Error in the event system: The COM+ Event System detected a bad return code during its internal processing. HRESULT was 80040154 from line 44 of d:\qxp_slp\com\com1x\src\events\tier1\eventsystemobj.cpp. This may indicate that the COM+ Event System is not properly installed. Please try reinstalling the COM+ Event System.
Let me know if you require anything additionally for information.
