The Windows Setup program has disappeared from my system.

Tried to update Java and make the message that Windows Installer is missing.  Checked services.msc and it isn't here.  I can't download 4.5 and install due to missing Installer.  I can't install or remove any program that requires msi.  One knows if I can re update with SP @ and get back or there at - it another way than anyone can suggest.

  • Photoshop has disappeared from my system.

    Recently, I signed the creative cloud and downloaded the new applications and updates cs6. Now, I suddenly find that Photoshop has disappeared from my system.  It appears in not known to the list of available applications. Normally, I would like to remove the application and reinstall a new version, but there is no visible list to uninstall. I also tried the cleaning without success program. Ironically, Manager of Application seems to be the only application that can find Photoshop on my system. He reported that everything is up to date and therefore does not have a new download. The system is a late model imac OSX 10.8.3 running.

    Good question. If the cleaning tool does not fix it, you can manually delete the caps.db in the folder selections:

  • tiles Windows 8 app has disappeared from the splash screen

    My computer has forced a reboot for an update today and after I back in all the tiles from the app (weather, photos, applications purchased in-store, etc.) had disappeared from the start screen, with the exception of desktop computers and store.   Nothing seems to be disturbed in desktop mode this just seems to be the Win8 apps.   I didn't install anything (with the exception of windows updates).   How to bring back these tiles?

    Windows key + X, select command (Admin) prompt and type sfc/scannow and return.  If it detects and repairs system files, run it again until no error.

    If this does not correct the situation, you must do a refresh install.

  • The Windows Setup program does not open. Stuck with black screen.

    Hi all

    I'm trying to install windows 7 from an iso file using Bootcamp assistant, Version 6.0.1 but unfortunately just windows installer does not open so I'm stuck with this black screen. I left my sit MacBookPro autour with this black screen during more than half an hour and after awhile, it gets really hot so I interrupted the "process."

    I have reset the NVRAM (command + alt + p + r) which did nothing.

    I followed the instructions of bootcamp. I downloaded the correct drivers for my model of mac pro book, I created a bootable and partitioned my drive.

    The forum has a lot of "black screen problems" but none of their solutions worked for me.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you

    1. leave BCA creates the installer from USB, but not to partition your drive.

    2. download the correct drivers to install Windows 7 and previous versions on your Mac with Boot Camp - Apple Support and replace $WinPEDriver$, AutoUnattend.xml, and the entire folder on the drive flash USB2 Bootcamp.

    3. run BCA, connect the USB cable and click only the Windows Installer and test if the Setup program starts.

  • The Windows Setup program opens each time a program is open

    My setup issues are not quite like those posted. My Windows Installer is not only appear at any time, but rather opens whenever I want to open a program. I click on explore, and I get the window. It passes through the preparation to installation and the program opens. It should not only be the program well. When I tried to open this Web page, it came, and then when I wanted to post this comment he came again. So I had to wait until he is 'install', and then I could post.  I did a system restore now for something completely different, and once I did, and then it started to happen. I also decided to restore back to an earlier date, and then I got the message unable to restore. I tried to re-boot in safe mode, but it wouldn't take my password! Thank God it's Friday! I really want to solve first the thing of windows installer.

    Thank you!

  • Delivers the Windows Setup program, when you make updates I get error code 641

    I use Vista Home Premium. When you perform the update of windows I get 641 error code. In addition, had 'Installer could not access' trying to download QuictTime.  I read the posts of severl where people thought iolo System Mechanic may have caused a registry problem. I contacted iolo on the problem, and they mentioned, that there is a registry problem with 10.8 SM, I think. They said that they are working on the problem. They have called for a snapshot of the system and said: your question has been referred to our support technicians to senior level for further research. I had to have a response within 24-48 hours; However, I have not heard from them yet. Is there a way I can reload Windows install? A simple help would be appreciated. Other than the update or install delivers the computer is running fine. The tenth of May was the last Windows Update to work.

    System Mechanic is your troublemaker & you have lots of company!  See...


    Contact System Mechanic ( support for assistance - they are well aware of this problem.

    TIP: If you think that more never your registry database needs to be cleaned, repaired, boosted, to the point, healed, twisted, fixed, magnified, "swept" or optimized (and even more to convince that it is not), read and draw your own conclusions. See also
