This is some kind of problem with the user access control. I could fix it by disabling it. Here's how to disable it..
Here’s the step to disable and turn off UAC (User Access Control) feature for the logged on user account in Windows Vista (there are plenty more ways to disable UAC):

  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. In “Control Panel”, click User Accounts and Family Safety.
  3. In the “User Accounts and Family Safety” window, click User Accounts.
  4. In the “Make changes to your user account” tasks window, click Turn User Account Control on or off.
  5. If UAC is currently configured in Admin Approval Mode, the User Account Control message appears. Click Continue.
  6. Clear the Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer check box, and then click OK.
  7. Click Restart now to apply the change immediately, or click Restart Later to close the User Accounts tasks window. Note that you must reboot the system to make the change effective.
Let me know if it worked!

Am getting 1721 errors on my computer, can you tell me how i can fix it ?


Here you go. This is long winded but should fix you up.
Error 1721 is a common problem for many different Windows systems, shown when the installation you're trying to perform develops a problem and needs to be fixed. If you have this error, it's recommended that you're able to first fix any problems that could be inside your Windows system, and then cure the specific issues that the Windows Installer program has on your PC. This tutorial is going to show you exactly how to do that...
This error will typically show like this:

  • Error 1721. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personal or package vendor.

The problem with this error is actually caused by a very simple issue - the Windows Installer program that is used to install the various files & software onto your PC is actually damaged or corrupted & preventing your system from installing the program you want. This can be caused by a number of problems, including everything from having corrupt registry settings to the Installer program on your system being damaged. To fix this, you first need to make sure that Windows Installer is okay, and then get rid of any further system errors on your computer.
The first step to resolving this error is to "register" and "unregister" the Windows Installer on your system. This is a program which installs all the programs that you want onto your PC, and is constant on every Windows installation. The problem that often causes error 1721 is the way in which Windows often cannot read the Windows Installer program, because it's not "registered". Registering a program basically tells Windows where to look for it on your system, and it's often the case that this stored reference is either damaged or deleted by accident. To ensure this is not a problem, you need to be able to type the following into your system:

  • Load up "CMD" (click "Start" > Run > type cmd)
  • Type msiexec u/unregister
  • Type msiexec /register
  • Try reinstaling the program you wanted to

If you try this and find it does not work, then it's recommended you then use a program by Microsoft called the "Windows Installer Cleanup Utility". This is a new program which basically cleans up all the settings and options associated with the Windows Installer program; meaning that if you have any problems with the Windows Installer on your PC, they should be fixed. You may also wish to install Windows Installer 4.5, which will basically upgrade the Windows Installer program on your system, which should resolve many cases of the 1721 error.
It's also highly recommended that you use a "registry cleaner" to fix any of the errors that are on your Windows system. A registry cleaner is a type of software tool that basically scans through the registry database of your PC and fixes any of the problems that are inside it. The registry database contains all the settings, files and options for Windows, and is where everything from your most recent emails to your desktop wallpaper are kept. It's basically like a library for your system which is continually being used to help your software run correctly. Unfortunately, the registry is continually being damaged & corrupted, leading it to become highly ineffective and erroneous. To ensure this problem is not causing the 1721 error, you should clean through your system with a registry cleaner tool.

I have OS as windows xp.I have 1 GB RAM.Then I want to install the ubuntu and use it.I dono to install.My friends told that 1 GB Ram can"t access the installation well. Then what is the solution to install...


Hello Sir,

I am sure your system meets the normal requirement for installing and using the Ubuntu OS. So you dont have to worry about the system speed and perfomance. I have also sent you the link to download the latest version of Ubuntu OS 10.4 from the original website. All you need to do is download it and burn that image file using nero or any image burning software to the dvd and boot the dvd in your system and install it.

What is error 1721..........How do I reinstall HP Updates?


This is an error commonly witnessed when you try to uninstall a program using the "Add or Remove Programs" in Microsoft Windows XP. The message itself will read: "Error 1721. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personal or package vendor."

I Googled your error and this is what I got. As far as your update question, I think you can just go to HP website, and redownload and reinstall all the updates that you are in need of. If you are speaking of Windows Updates, you can redownload those to. Just go to Microsoft website and in their search box, type in reinstall updates; of course, you will also have to type in there which updates you need to reinstall. Hope this helps.

I can not install OfficeSuite. I have Windows Vista home Premium. I had downloaded updates all afternoon and it still shows error 1719 Window installer not correctly installed. Help!


Download:Windows Vista Service Pack 1

I tried personally in WIN-XP worked same applies to Vista.

Error Message:
Error 1719. The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. You may be running in safe mode or Windows Installer may not be correctly installed. Translation:
This message might appear when you’re trying to add or remove a program that installs via a Windows Installer MSI (Microsoft Software Installation) package file. The Windows Installer Service is the standard method for installing and uninstalling software on Windows XP. It keeps track of all of the components that need to be installed for a particular program to run and ensures that any files that are shared by programs are not removed when one of those programs is uninstalled. The Error 1719 is an indication that some Windows Installer Service files are missing or have become damaged. Solution:
The first thing to try is re-registering Windows Installer in the Windows registry. Make sure that no other programs are running and then click Start, Run, type msiexec /unregister in the Open field, and click OK. Next, click Start, Run, type misexec /regserver in the Open field, and click OK. Restart your computer and try installing or uninstalling again.

If you’re still getting the error message, the next step is to try reinstalling the Windows Installer files. In order to do this, you’ll first need to rename the existing files.

First, click Start, Run, and type msiexec /unregister in the Open field, and click OK.

In My Computer, click Search and locate the following three files: msi.dll, msiexec.exe, and msihnd.dll. They are hidden files so you’ll need to select Search Hidden Files And Folders under More Advanced Options. When you’ve found the files, rename them, by removing the .dll and .exe extensions and replacing them with an .old extension(for example msi.dll becomes msi.old).

Once you’ve renamed the files, WinXP will automatically replace them with a new copy from the dllcache (a hidden folder where copies of important system files are kept in case you mistakenly delete or rename critical system files). Restart your computer and try to install or uninstall the program again.

Finally, if neither of the above processes corrects the problem, boot into Safe Mode, and go through the above steps again, first re-registering and then reinstalling.

How to install vista on I-MAC


Hi Harry

yes, vista can be installed on I-macs ...but i need to know which version of operating system do you have (whether it's leopard or tiger and version 10.5.2 or earlier)
I say so because new version of Leopard Operating system has a feature called "boot camp"... this is Apple's "bootloader" ... which means it will help you install windows Vista on Apple I-mac .

If you have genuin vista disk handy with you and after you have backed up all the data on the apple machine , this is what you gotta do....

1. Using the Finder, navigate through Applications, Utilities and run Boot Camp Assistant.
2. Click Continue on the Introduction screen.
3. Next, you will need to specify how you want your hard drive divided up for Windows. A separate partition will be created that Windows will use. Drag the divider to adjust the size for Windows as shown below. I recommend at least 15 GB to allow for the OS and some apps. When you are ready, click Partition and your disk will be prepared.

4. It is time to start the Windows installation. Insert your Windows Vista install DVD and click Start Installation. Your Mac will automatically reboot and boot to the install DVD.

5. Install Windows Vista as you would normally do. When asked where to install, select the partition called BOOTCAMP. You will need for format this partition with NTFS.
6. When Windows Vista has installed, remove the Windows Vista install DVD and insert your OS X 10.5 Leopard install DVD. Run the Boot Camp installer application and all the Windows drivers for your Apple hardware will be automatically installed.

7. When you want to switch to OS X or Windows, just reboot and hold down the Option key to select what partition to boot.

Purchased computer model Elite 9070a have been well serviced with HP products this being 3rd HP computer we have purchased. However am very disalusioned with Vista program and wish to replace with windows...


You sound like you tried to install XP with Vista running - this will generate the message that you have received.

To install XP on your system, insert your XP disk into the computer and then restart it.

Select Boot From Disk during start up and this will lead you into the XP Installation.

Xp will not recognise Vista and will just overwrite it - deleting the current OS and formatting the C:\

Good luck.
