Had to join this forum to pass on my success fixing the installation of ADOBE 9.1. I couldn't even install the older Adobe versions. I kept getting "error 1402" and a problem with: hkey_local_machine\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run\optionalcomponents\msfs .
I cleaned up the registry by getting freeware to do so at a trusted download site (CNET), but that didn't help, but man, there sure were a bunch of loose ends in there. I then finally gave in and updated the browser by installing IE8 to see if that would help. Setting that up diverted me for a while, but no success.
I found success after using a FIX it program on a Microsoft website dealing with resetting the security setting. It was from this page dealing with "Method 1" to fix an install problem and I clicked on the link: 313222 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313222/
) "How do I restore security settings to the default settings?" This then takes you here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313222/
. Then I clicked on the box with the little dude holding a wrench. It takes about 10 mintes and you'll see the COMMAND screen open up and it'll do its thing.
Then I went back to the folder on my machine and clicked on the set up (or download it again from adobe), for ADOBE 9.1 and finally had the thing install. Hope this helps.
