Error "Windows can not open installer_msi_win.msi."

I get the error "Windows cannot open installer_msi_win.msi."  It resembles an association for execution has disappeared.

I found a msiexec.exe file and tried to associate-but, it did not help.  It displays a message indicating that my run is in the wrong format.

Note: I do a clean-up recently and deleted all my kb*.log files that were under 2 years old.   I wonder if this is related?

Whatever it in, how can I get my installation files (installer_msi_win.msi) back to work for me?

I think these are my updates of Windows and rather important.


See if its installed. Go in run, type: cmd cmd type: Msiexec/help

A display window should appear with msi info, otherwise Close cmd.

Go in run, type: msiexec /Unregister

Once done, go to run, type: msiexec/regserver

This must be reinstalled Installer.

  • file extensions that windows can NOT open?

    Why do I always have to search the Internet to find programs to open the file on my computer extensions?

    The computer was smart enough to put them on my hard drive in the first place, so it seems to me that it has the ability

    to read at this point so why NOT after that I put it in a file?

    Hello pivinquiruingumind and welcome to microsoft.

    like many others your under the impression that computers are smart. and that computers have the ability to think. It is 100% fake. computers are quite ignorant, it's the programmer who makes an intelligent computer. but there are limits to what programmers can do.

    extensions are no exception. they are not managed by the windows shell. are traversed by a program. Windows does not include what the program does, or he does not understand what is the extension. Instead, the extension is associated with the program. Windows detects the extension. detects the inscription of this extension and opens, he threw the program. It's all done windows. It does not include something about the program. or the extencion. It includes just the program uses some extension.

    I hope this helps you if you have any questions feel free e request

    I use my laptop computer in a docking station.  I took it out to take for a trip and when I got home I plugged it back (as I always do).  Just before the trip, I have upgraded to Windows 7 and all my printers were working very well.  When I got home and pluged again, Windows does not recognize one of my printers.  When I try to add printers a say8ing error message "Windows can't open add printer."  The local print spooler service is not running.  Please restat the spooler or restart the machine. "I tried to restart and turn off the printer, etc.  Can someone help me?

    Hi RobynGP,
    This may occur if the print spooler requires other services, and these services are not running. To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
    1. in Services, right-click on print spooler and then click Properties.

    2. click the Dependencies tab. The first box list all system services that must work for the print spooler start. These are dependencies.

    3 make a note of each service, click OK, and restart each service on which the print spooler is dependent, if the service is not already started. If a service is not started, right-click, click Properties, and then make sure that the startup type is automatic.
    Let us know if this helped.

  • Windows can't open add printer. Impossible operation completed (error 0x000000c1)

    When I try to "Add a printer" in the Panel in Windows 7, I have "Windows can't open add printer." Impossible operation completed (error 0x000000c1). »

    I uninstalled all the other printer drivers (I'm pretty sure. How can I know?).

    It's an all-in-one HP Officejet Pro 8600, and I can use the scanner very well. I can't add the printer.

    Thanks for responding!

    I tried several solutions and searched many forums. This has actually been a problem for some time now, and I do not know what facilities of printer driver broke.

    I did put a lot of thought into it and just posted stuff to the network and printed one of my other computers. It became a problem recently, when I was too lazy to get up and turn on one of the other computers. :-) I then decided that I just needed to fix it.

    I read all the posts I could find for each version of Windows treats this problem and tried each of them. I removed all the old drivers (at least I think I did. I couldn't find anybody would say, 'Here are the drivers installed.'). I downloaded the new drivers from HP. I edited the registry. I went to the folder/Windows/System32/Spool/something and deleted all. I searched all references to Lexmark (my old printer) and deleted.

    In any case, last night my boot sector failed, so I ended up reinstalling Windows. I just finished now, and the printer works fine, now.


    PS I'm sorry that this thread will be of no use to any person responsible research. I found a lot of them, too.
