488.2 NOR install any failure due to an incomplete uninstall

I'm trying to uninstall OR 488.2 version 1.74 to replace it with version 3.0.2. After the uninstall is complete, but before I restarted, the computer crashed.

Now 488.2 1.74 still appears in the Add/Remove Software dialog box NOR, but I can't remove it because of the error to Windows Installer 1612. (I reinstalled Windows Installer 4.5 successfully twice, but it did not help).

I tried to fix the old version, but it asks that the drivers of devices OR May 2004. I downloaded several versions of around this date on the NOR, including a marked v1.7, but none seems to be good (they are not "a place of valid distribution" for necessary repair files).

I was able to successfully install and uninstall 488.2 version 2.24 from the Web site of NOR, but it did not help.

A complete search of the system does no file referring to v1.74. In addition, no version of 488.2 appears in MAX. These facts lead me to believe that the old version is, in fact, not installed on the machine more. However, the installation for v3.0.2 DVD and Add/Remove Software dialog box OR still think it's there.

They are looking for a DLL or another specific file indicate the presence of an earlier version? Where would these files be installed? I am running XP SP3, Labview 2011 SP1, MAX 5.1.

Alternatively, can someone please provide me with a MSI jet?

Here's what worked for me (removed v1.74 legacy 488.2 and installed the new 488.2 driver, v.3.0.2). It took all day and I hope I remembered the correct order:

(1) disable all services NOT in msconfig, and then restart

(2) delete the folder C:\Program NIUninstaller Instruments

(3) follow the MSI blowing up the instructions on this page, thanks to step 8, and then restart: http://forums.ni.com/ni/attachments/ni/170/193600/1/MSI%20Blast%20instructions.txt

(4) download windows "install and uninstall" utility program:


(5) to run the utility, specifying that you have a problem to uninstall a program. All programs OR that I just deleted were still visible. Select the one that has already failed to uninstall, in my case 488.2 v1.74. (The utility removed this program without error).

(6) reinstall Labview from the DVD, then re-enable all services OR in msconfig, and then restart

(7) install the new instrument drivers. More surprising still, some of the drivers that I just deleted yet found to exist! Fortunately, 488.2 was not among them and the new version installed properly.

Here's what worked for me:

-Messing with the registry badly damaged the boot sector on my D: drive (this is partly my fault, because I recorded my backup of the registry on drive D :)

-About 10 different programs freeware/trial version of any hair could not repair sector

-A registry repair tool found problems with the registry and impossible to repair. He's always corrupt.

-The internet is full of horrible programs that wreak havoc on your system if you spend a lot of time to read about them in the forums in the world

-It took all day to understand

In my opinion, National Instruments should really get their act together and publish a uninstall tool that actually works. Or better yet, release compiled versions of instrument for Mac OS X drivers.

  • HA installation failure due to a misconfiguration in the host network configuration?

    We have no setup problem on a cluster HA containing 2 ESX 4.0 host. However, after adding a host ESXi 4.1 and configuration HA to contain all 3 hosts, HA shows failure due to a misconfiguration in the network configuration for the ESXi 4.1 host host.

    Remembering this bad spell names network could cause a failure of HA configuration, we proceed to rename network management Service Console host ESXi 4.1 in order to match the network management of the ESX 4.0. However, this does not.

    ESX and ESXi are able to mix in a HA cluster in the first place? Any advise?

    Yes, you can mix ESXi and ESX on this same cluster

    1. Check your DNS - should resolve to long and short names of all nodes in a cluster that you
    2. are the new ESXi in the same IP subnet as the older ESX servers?
    3. try to disable and enable HA
    4. Check below link

    It seems that you might have downloaded some malware or adware.  Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac to get rid of him.  In the future, avoid the following types of sites to prevent it happening again:

    • XXX sites
    • torrent sites
    • Group download sites (CNET, Softonic, download (dot) com, MacUpdate, etc..)
    • MP3 download sites (Mp3 Skull, mp3monkey, etc.)
    • No matter what website says you can do or download something for free you know otherwise you would cost money
  • Not able to install any other OS on Satellite M70

    I have a Toshiba M70-181 and my friend has a series of satellite Toshiba M70-189.

    (a) we both are not able to install any other OS outside one (Windows XP Home edition (German)) provided with the product. Is it not possible to install any other OS? Toshiba does not support any other OS?

    (b) we got a German OS with the product. Is it possible that we can get a recovery CD English replacement for the Germany that we have. If yes how?

    (c) is it possible to install Linux on the laptop 2 above?

    (d) if it is not possible to install any other OS is so their a workaround so that we can install another OS?

    [Edited by: admin on 12 February 06 15:33]


    Normally there is no problem to install another OS. Just boot from the installation of the desired OS CD and it runs.

    But getting the system to operate with all functions is not so easy, as Toshiba only supports Windows XP for the M70. If you want to use another language or XP Pro, there is no problem, because the drivers and software are almost the same.

    But Linux or something else, to pick up on other places for drivers to work (if they already exist). I remember that I saw some people who got their system works with Linux on this forum.

    Replace the recovery CD is unfortunately not possible. If you want XP in English, you need a full version of XP in English from Microsoft.

  • Satellite A30 - after the BIOS update I can not install any OS

    Hey everybody

    I have a problem with my laptop Toshiba Satellite A30 PSA33E. I update my old BIOS and 1.7 and now I have a problem: I can not install any OS on my PC because it stops whenever I try to install. After 50 tests, I installed a Windows SP2, but my PC turns off always.

    My CPU is at 100% after I launch mozilla so I guess my problem is the BIOS. I try to install v1.8 BIOS and is not working and I get an error (not compatible with the installed BIOS)

    Where can I find the 1.3, 1.4, 1.5 ROM BIOS? Can someone help me please?

    The latest version of the BIOS should not cause this kind of thing. Have reset you the BIOS to its default settings?

    Have you checked the CPU radiator for an accumulation of dust? A can of compressed Air can help remove dust through the vents.

    What was the reason that you updated the BIOS, in the first place? Had previous problems with the system?



    I bought a computer hp laptop with this specification HP Pavilion g4-1310au Notebook PC about two weeks ago. It comes with a Freedos operating system. I tried to install an operating system from windows xp and also tried to install a windows 7, but every time I have to install the operating system, the installion was interrupted with a meassage to individuals a "blue screen" error error message saying that there are problems with my hard drive and I need to check on my hard drive. This scenario came when I tried to install windows xp on it. The next thing I did is that I tried to install windows 7 on the laptop computer. But still no luck, this time the error indicates that the installation cannot continue because there is a file missing or damaged file that prevents the installation.

    I also tried to set some settings in the BIOS of the laptop as the Boot Option to start start installation in the cd/dvd from the laptop drive.

    What seems to be the problem if I'm not able to install any operating system of your laptop? Is there a way or any special instructions for me to install the operating systems in this particular type and model of your laptop?

    Your help will be much appreciated if you could guide me to solve my problem with my laptop.

    I can't install any updates for my computer at all, even the window updates is one of the many error messages I receive, Error 1606 could access the location %APPDATA%\ network. How can I fix it?


    This problem occurs because there is incorrect entries in the Shell folder of the user who is logged on to Microsoft Windows. When Windows Installer goes to the sale of Shell folder of the user who is logged on to the computer, Windows Installer cannot locate the correct entry. The solution is inhttp://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/886549.

    The steps to correct this problem involve editing the Windows registry.


    Change the settings of the REGISTRY can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the REGISTRY settings configuration can be solved. Changes to these settings are at your own risk. I suggest that you first back up your registry as follows: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Back-up-the-registry.

    Here are the steps to fix it.

    Step 1:

    a. Click Start, click Run, type ""regedit ' in the Open box, and then click OK. "

    b. find the following registry key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell dossiers\

    c. remove the entries that show the path that is listed in the error message.

    Step 2:

    886549 KB http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/886549:

    Open Regedit a. once again. In the left pane, click User Shell Folders, point to new, click expandable string value.

    b. type the value name that you want to restore (AppData), and then press ENTER.

    c. right-click on this value, click modify, type the value in the value data for the value name box and then click OK. The value data must be: % USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming.

    Step 8 KB 886549 suggests that you also check the values in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders. However, by fixing my problem, I had not to change values in the registry key. If this does not work, follow ALL the steps in the referenced article.

  • How will I know whether to install any program in the 64-bit or 32-bit section in Vista?

    original title: where to install?

    How can I know weather to install any program in the 64-bit or 32-bit section?

    Hello DaphneanEpiphany,

    The application that you are installing will sort it out for you. Unless the software is told explicitly 64-bit in the box, you can be assured that the software will be 32-bit.

    If you are running a copy of Windows Vista (or 7) 64-bit operating system will install the software in the right folder so I don't worry about this.

  • Cannot install any program or make any change on my standard account


    So I recently reinstalled my Windows, the installation was not made by me. This person created one account we'll call user for simplicity, giving him Admin privileges.

    When I noticed it, I created another Admin account and demoted user a standard account. But now, when I tried to install any program, I have some sort of error: "unable to write to the file...". ", I also tried to delete a random file/shortcut and got some kind of error saying that the system is allowed to do this.

    Is there a way to fix this?

    I had rather not my experience of user account with administrative privileges for obvious reason. What I want is just having the system queries the user the Admin password when you install a program, at least, to have access to what is in the directory of the user.
