    I tried your solution & started my pc in safe mode, the only user names that were available were my usual two, no option for administrator, so I went into the control panel anyway & once more tried to delete Pool Sharks. I then got a message from Windows Installer telling me that 'this service could not be accessed. This can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact support personnel for assistance'. I then tried to change the programme & was then advised that 'Windows Installer is not available in safe mode.

C:/Progam Files/blocktards/unins000.dat what is this error and how do i fix it


Hello crouch8323,
Welcome to FixYa.Com!
Unins000.dat is a files that if used by Blocktards' uninstaller to properly uninstall Blocktards off of your Desktop. If your are trying to uninstall Blocktards and you are getting an error message, I recommend that you uninstall Blocktards from the Control Panel's Add & Remove Program (for Windows XP) or Programs & Features (for VISTA or 7). If you still have the same error message, you can also try uninstalling Blocktards by going to the Start Menu, All Programs, Blocktards, and click Uninstall. If these steps give you the same error message, you may need to use Blocktards installer to uninstall the game, see if running the installer gives you the option to modify, remove or repair. And if all else fails you can always use a 3rd party uninstaller software like the option found in CCleaner.
Regards,

Windows Installer issues with Desktop Maestro


Your issue is a permission error in your registry with the files associations trying to be written at install. I had the EXACT same issue with Acrobat. Search the internet for "Acrobat Installer Issues". There is a link at the abode fourms site to Download a program to reset the entire registry permissions. As you will NOT be able to do this, Windows will tell you, "you do not have permission to view the permissions. Although you do NOT have Acrobat problems the issue is IDENTICAL.

next, download and install the Windows Installer CleanUp utility. use it to clear any existing itunes and/or QuickTime installation configuration information from the PC.

Description of the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301/ (Copy ans paste the link in internet explorer)

next, use the the following document as a guide for manual removal of leftover itunes and quicktime program files:

Removing iTunes and QuickTime for Windows

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1925?viewlocale=en_US

now try to install itunes again. does it go through properly this time?

If not then also try installing latest windows installer software

(Sometimes an iTunes entry or QuickTime entry doesn't show up in cleanUp, in conjunction with a missing .msi message, if there's an older version of the Windows Installer on the PC.)

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.

or

Go through the following links:

Flash 9 freezes after 1st. video plays on The Fan.


Lets Start from here:

Before you install Shockwave Player for any Windows browser, uninstall all previous versions.
In order to remove the Shockwave player, simply use the file UNWISE.EXE located in C:\WINDOWS\system32\Adobe\Shockwave 11. Windows users can also use the Add/Remove programs located in the Windows control panel. This will remove the Shockwave 10 player
For the Shockwave 8 and 8.5 there is an uninstaller available from the Web Players page.
Note: All applications must be closed before you run the Shockwave Player uninstaller. Quit all running applications, including all Internet Explorer or other browser windows, and all Instant Messenger clients. Check the Windows system tray carefully to make certain no applications which might possibly use Shockwave Player are still in memory.
After you have removed previous versions, you are ready to download and/or install Shockwave Player.

Before installing Shockwave Player, please check the following browser settings:
Internet Explorer ActiveX settings

Browser security settings should be chosen by you or by your system administrator. For single users who do not have an administrator, the Medium: Default Level allows you to view Shockwave content. For any Custom Level, ensure that both the "Download Signed ActiveX controls" and "Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins" options are set to "Prompt".

To change security level in Internet Explorer:

1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. Choose Tools > Internet Options.
3. Select the Security tab.
4. Select Custom Level.
5. Find the section "ActiveX controls and plug-ins".
6. Set ' Download Signed ActiveX Controls' to Prompt.
7. Set 'Run ActiveX Controls And Plug-ins' to Prompt.

If you are having trouble installing, make sure that your Internet Explorer security level is not set to High or to a custom level that does not allow viewing of ActiveX controls.
Computer user permissions

User permissions determine whether or not you are allowed to install ActiveX controls or plug-ins. If you don't have Administrator access to Windows XP SP2, or Vista you may not be able to install Shockwave Player successfully. Administrative privileges are required for the Windows system registry and for the C:\WINDOWS\system32\Adobe\Shockwave folder.
If the ActiveX Control for Shockwave Player fails to install, download the executable installer.

If the information above has not resolved the issue, download the executable Shockwave Player installer here:

* Download and latest Shockwave Player Installer.

Save this installer to your desktop, close out all applications, and run the installer. This may help if you are having trouble with the ActiveX installation from Adobe.com. To confirm that Shockwave Player has installed successfully, please click here. The two movies will show if you have Flash and Shockwave Players installed. The version numbers of the both Players will be displayed in the test movie.
