If the option is there, usually when you have an OS disk there is a repair option. Try that and see how far it gets you.

How do i fix windows update error 1722


Hi,
According to the error code 1722, it is actually a windows installer error. What we need to do is to fix the Windows Installer.
Try the following fix below...
(Please note that before trying any of the solutions below, you must be logged into your computer as an Administrator.)
  • Check whether Windows Installer engine is functioning.

  1. Click Start > Accessories > Command Prompt.

  2. At the command prompt, type MSIExec and press Enter. MSI refers to the Windows Installer.

  3. In the MSI engine is working, you should see no error messages. However, if you see an error message, note down the error. Search for it in a search engine such as Google to find troubleshooting solutions.

  4. Now try to install or uninstall the program again. If the problem persists, go to the next fix.

  • Check that Windows Installer service is not disabled.

  1. Click Start and type service.msc in the Search box and press Enter.

  2. The Services window is opened. Right-click on 'Windows Installer' service, then click 'Start'. The service needs to start without any errors.

  3. Now try to install or uninstall your program again. If it persists, try the next fix.

  • Check for latest version of Windows Installer.

  1. Click Start > Accessories > Command Prompt.

  2. Once the command prompt window opens up, type MSIExec and press Enter. If MSI engine is working, you should see no error messages, and it should open a separate dialog box, which shows the MSI version.

  3. If the installer version doesn't show as version 4.5, download the latest version athttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/942288/

  4. Now try to install or reinstall your program again. If it still persists, try the next fix.

  • Reregister the installer engine.

  1. Click Start > Accessories > Command Prompt.

  2. At the command prompt, first type MSIExec / unregister, then press Enter and type MSIExec / regserver

  3. Now try to install or reinstall your program again.

  • Clean your CD or DVD media.

  1. If you are trying to install the program from a CD or DVD media, use a CD or DVD disc cleaning kit.

  2. You can also gently wipe the silver side of the disc with a soft, lint-free cotton cloth. Make sure you do not use paper or other rough cloth as this can scratch the plastic or leave streaks that can damage the disk. Make sure you wipe the disk from the center outward and not circular motion.

  3. If you use a damp cloth or commercial disk cleaning solution, wipe the disc thoroughly before inserting into the drive.

  • Copy installation files to your computer.

  1. If you are using a removable or external media to install the program, copy the installation files from there to your computer's hard drive and then run the installation file from that location. It is usually called autorun.exe or setup.exe. If you are not sure, just check the Readme file in the setup folder about how to start the installation.

  2. Unless there is no .exe file present in the setup folder, we do not recommend that you run .msi files directly.

  • Terminating other programs running on your computer.

  1. Click Start and type msconfig in the Search box.

  2. One the 'General' tab, click 'Selective startup', then click to clear the 'Load startup items' checkbox.

  3. Click 'Services' tab, click 'Hide all Microsoft services', and then click 'Disable all'.

  4. Click OK, then click Restart.

  5. After the computer restarts, try to run your program installation.

  6. Once you have finished troubleshooting the problem, restart your computer again.

  7. Click Start, type msconfig in the Search box. Click on the 'General' tab, click 'Normal startup', click OK, then click Restart.

    Hope this helps!

I can't install windows live messenger, it encounter a network error while attempting to read from the file C:\WINDOWS\Installer\Messenger.msi


I found the site below and thought of your situation. Here is the message I received:
-------
"Network error occurred while attempting to read from the file:
C:\\WINDOWS/Installer/Messenger.msi
Please close all other open programs, and then try again. It looks like another program is preventing the installer from working. hr.0x80070643"
-------
If it's the same message, and you haven't found a solution yet, then this will do the trick. Although it's an older post, it works just fine for the current 14.0.8117.416 Messenger update issue:
http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/forums/index.cfm?action=showthread&threadid=346865&forumid=1
Scroll about halfway down the page. Look for Microsoft Customer Support (Joan, Technical Support, Live Essentials):
Note: For the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility, I downloaded from this link (you'll want the latest version wherever you get it - 2.5.0.1):

Problem downloading Itunes on Dell P.C.


try the following procedure.

first, head into your start> control panel >Add/Remove programs and uninstall your QuickTime. if it goes, good. if it doesn't, we'll just attend to it when we attend to itunes.

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.)
