So here's the thing. I recently installed The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion on my PC using its disc. The install went fine but on startup, the game will display Bethesda Softworks, 2k Games ect. as usual, then proceed to crash with the following message inside a box named "Windows Installer" :
“The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.
Enter an alternate path to folder containing the instruction package “Blackberry Desktop Software.msi.” in the box below: C:\users\Émilie\appdata\local\temp\WZSE1.tmp\1
(Émilie is my sister's name, and she hasn't had a user folder in a long, long time)
I have found no ways to interact with the windows installer box in any way. Clicking on it freezes the screen until i open the task manager. Heck, sometimes that doesn't even work and i have to restart the computer.
The very technical procedure of "mashing a bunch of buttons until something happens" did not work either, surprisingly.
So I was fairly confused about what the hell blackberry had to do with my oblivion game. Even more confusing was the fact that I dont own anything related to blackberry. I first assumed some remnant blackberry files my sister installed were causing some shenanigans and messing up the game, so I used Revo Uninstaller to get rid of everything. Then I read somewhere that such errors could be caused by corrupted files in windows installer. I ran a program that was supposed to fix that kind of stuff, to no avail (not sure if it worked though). Tried a bunch of other solutions related to windows installer. Nothing happened.
Tried reinstalling, tried compatibility mode, tried different settings, tried running as admin, and a bunch of other stuff. I know for a fact the disc is fine.
So, I'm really confused. Not sure if I've angered the computer gods or something but I can't get this thing to work. I'm not one to usually post online to fix my issues, i usually just look up answers on google. Thing is, I've not found anyone with this problem online, so I haven't found a convincing solution.
I don't consider myself computer savvy, so this might be really simple or really complicated. Either way I hope you take the time to answer me if you can. Thank you for reading.
