Copy the entire program to a folder on the hard drive and try to launch it from there. When you are doing your copy go into folder options and make sure you show all hidden files before copying to the hard drive. Then go to the folder you copied it to and launch the setup.

When installing Java, at the end the message ''Error 1721. There is a problem with this windows Installer package''. A program required for this install to complete could not run. I've tried everything....


Try the steps laid out in this MS KB article about the installer service:

Reboot the computer, after it beeps start pushing F8. You should get a menu. Select Safe Mode and push enter.

Once Windows comes up click start and type in CMD (for Vista/7). Right-click cmd.exe and select "Run As Administrator". (For XP: click start then Run. Put in CMD and click OK).
Put in
msiexec /unregister

Then bring up the Run box again and put in
msiexec /register
Close the CMD box and reboot the PC, letting it boot as normal. Try the Java install process again. If it still doesn't work try the SFC command listed in the above KB article (which I can help with).

Error 2350


THE PROBLEM The Windows Error 2350 occurs when the installed version of the Windows Installer is too old for the MSI to execute. The registration entry for the engine has been damaged and all attempts to execute the MSI installation packages will not be successful.Errors on your system may be caused by invalid registry entries and outdated or corrupt drivers.
THE SOLUTIONTo fix the registration entry for the Windows Installer, the Installer service should first be registered then unregistered using msiexec /unregister and msiexec /regserver (Type both command in run) or the command line switches. The user will then have to restart Windows.

Cisco VPN Client for 32 bit vista


Download the latest version of the Cisco VPN Client. My version is 5.0.03.0530.

You can also try using the Microsoft "MSIZap" utility to ensure a clean uninstall. It is a command-line utility. You will need the original MSI install file from the Cisco VPN client to use MSIZap.

You can download it here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa370523.aspx

Error 1721


Try the following regardless of the software as this is the common error message provided by Microsoft. Of course this won't rule out either a corrupt installer or incompatibility's
  1. Disable/Configure any anti-spyware or anti-virus software on your system during installation process. For example: Spybot Search and Destroy Program or Norton Anti-Virus
  2. Check to see if any spyware or adware is installed on your system blocking the completion of install process.
  3. Check to see if you find any unwanted entry in Add/Remove Programs or Internet Explorer - Add/On's section (Tools - Internet Options - Programs -> Manage Add On's). If you found one, remove/disable this entry.
  4. On Windows Vista, disable UAC (User Access Control) feature for your account
