An .msi file is a database of all the files, settings, and configuration information for the associated application. When you install Office on your computer, the .msi file is saved in a hidden folder. Without this file, Windows Installer cannot update your configuration, install optional features, or apply software updates. Programs cannot be installed, repaired, or updated if the .msi file is not found.

    Preventing MSI errors To prevent these errors from occurring, make sure that registry cleaning and spyware removal utilities do not remove files and registry entries associated with your software.

The software uninstaller will remove the associated entries from the registry.
    Some products available for free on the Internet suggest that the registry needs regular maintenance or cleaning. However, use extreme caution when installing and using a registry cleaner. Many registry cleaners generate other MSI errors because they do not recognize valid registry entries and delete them. This can cause more MSI errors and prevent other programs from working.
    If you do decide to install a registry cleaner, be sure to research the product thoroughly, and then download and install programs only from software publishers that you trust .

    Hi.

    If you are unable to uninstall the software by way of 'Add or Remove Programs' or 'Programs and Features', it will be necessary for you to perform a manual uninstall by searching the hard drive for files and folders related to the program you want to uninstall. then manually removing those files and folders.
    Many programs will install files and folders in several locations on the hard drive. And, even when it is possible to uninstall software by way of 'Add or Remove Programs' or 'Programs and Features', it is always a good idea to conduct a search of the entire hard drive then manually delete any files, folders, icons and shortcuts that are found by that search because many uninstall processes do not remove all files, folders, desktop icons and Start menu shortcuts associated with the software.
    After making sure that all files, folders, icons and shortcuts have been removed from the computer, empty the Recycle Bin, restart the computer, then run a registry cleaner until no invalid registry entries are found. It is advisable to run the registry cleaner REPEATEDLY (always restart the computer before running the registry cleaner again) because fixing some invalid registry entries can cause other registry entries to become invalid.

    If you are uninstalling the program because you believe that the installation is corrupt, these steps are especially important . Making sure that all files, folders, icons and shortcuts are manually deleted and using a registry cleaner to remove all invalid registry entries is the best way to ensure that all corruptioIf you don't have a registry cleaner installed on your computer, you can download the free CCleaner by clicking on the link below

    Download Latest Version of CCleaner

    If you use CCleaner, you must remember to click on the 'Registry' button on the left side of the window before starting the scan. And, with CCleaner, running the registry cleaner repeatedly will often cause the same invalid registry entries to be displayed over and over. If that happens more than twice, the only option is to allow those invalid registry entries to remain - because indications are that those invalid registry entries are not truly
    invalid at all.

    There is also an option to try and uninstall a program using CCleaner. If you click on "Tools" option on the left hand side, click on "Uninstall" and look down that list for Creatacard and try and uninstall the software using that option.

    The 'Cleaner' option in CCleaner is a very useful tool for cleaning out unnecessary files and folders on the hard drive. So, it is also be a good idea to run the 'Cleaner' option in addition to the 'Registry' option.

    Once you are sure that all traces have been removed restart your computer and proceed to re-install the software again.



    Hope this helps.

    Victim of software counterfeiting


    Hi,

    After installing your genuine copy of Microsoft Windows XP you are prompted with a “Your software is counterfeit” error message at startup. Even after visiting the www.microsoft.com/genuine/ site and validating, you still get the above message popping up after 2 or 3 boots. There is an easy solution to this and I would like you to follow the steps below to fix the issue.

    1. C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files
    • Within that folder, remove any files or folders associated with .WGA
    2. Safe Mode
    • Reboot your computer and as soon as Windows logs off, start repeatively tapping the F8 Key on your keyboard.
    • As soon as you see the Windows Advanced Startup options select Safe Mode within Safe Mode get yourself into these folders…
    • C:\Windows\System32 (Rename wgatray.exe to wgatrayold.exe)
    • C:\Windows\System32\dllcache (Rename wgatray.exe to wgatrayold.exe)
      Note: Dllcache is a hidden folder, to view hidden folders do the following, go to Start, Control Panel, Folder Options,
      Select the view Tab and under the Hidden Files option, select Show hidden files and folders
    3. Safe Mode Registry
    • Click on Start, Run and within the open dialog box type regedit and click OK.
    • Within the Registry Editor navigate your self to
      HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify\WGALOGON
    • Right Click and Export the WGALOGON Folder (this should be saved onto your machine for backup purposes)
    • After Exporting the folder, DELETE the WGALOGON folder
    • After deleting close all applications and Restart your machine back to Normal Mode
    After being prompt of a successful validation, Restart your Machine.
