    I went around looking for a fix to this and found one topic, but didn't seem to help and was from Dec 04. Anyways, you can see my running programs below in my signiture. Which of these programs if any do you think are blocking the .msi installations programs. I know that anolog-x script defender with the extra extentions blockes it, so I unregistered those extensions, but anyways, when I run a .msi installation program, nothing happens. Yep nothing, no error, no pop-up of any sort, nothing! Any ideas?

    Hi dja2k,

    Have you checked you're Application Event Log when you say "no error?"
    Please, the OS?

    have you checked in services? (Microsoft Installer) it should be set to manual, you could try setting it to automatic.

    you could try the MSI fix, i found it earlier on a deleted part of my HDD and redownloaded, i can't find the site now, but you can use this, below. save it as msi1.reg and merge it. backup your registry first. copy everything below the line.

    Looking over your programs dja2k, Firefox+No Script could be the culprit along with your mention. I'm not sure where the scripting adjustment would be in FF not running it myself, but maybe warrant's further investigation.

    You run FF buddy, what do you think? Nice post BTW ;) this the page you were trying to recall ....

    Say Ice, you feel some area within FF may be causing the problem for dja2k?

    maybe you should keep the fix, because you might need it for the next time you need to run MSI, that's what i used to have to do.
