Hello,

This is my first question on this site. A while ago this afternoon I was reinstalling all of my programs back after formatting and the power went out while the setup was in progress. Now when I try to install again I get this message:

This is getting seriously frustrating, what can I do?

Thank you very much.

There are probably registry keys from the previous attempted installation.

If you're comfortable with editing your registry you could do a search under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> See if there is a folder named similar to the product or manufacturer and delete it. If you want to be cautious right click the file first and export it (backs it up).

As long as you've just formatted and reinstalled, do it again. Format and reinstall. Interrupting the installation process can cause lots of problems. Best off starting over.

This happened to me, and I do not advise a reformat. I solved this issue by going through my registry and deleting any instance of Corel Software and rebooted my machine. Shortly there after the installation completed.

I just re-read the original post and realize the power went out during the installation of Corel, not the OS. Sorry - and I agree - a format is not called for.

Thank you guys for your response but I just tried that and DID find a folder with the applications name; deleted it and after reboot I keep having the same problem.

Now, does anybody know what does "The handle is invalid" mean?:
