Whilst trying to reinstall a game (Silent Hunter 3) I got various error msgs from the Installer package. This has now settled down to installing on drive H: by default without offering a choice. I normally install on G:

Can I reinstall MSI somehow? My machine runs Windows XO Pro SP2

TIA

As Johnny said, make sure you are running Windows Installer 3.1 (v2).

Also, after making sure you are up-to-date you may want to run the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility.

And lastly, if all else fails, create a log while installing the package.

Code:
msiexec /i <PACKAGENAME.MSI> /L*v <LOGFILE.LOG>
or (for errors only)

Code:
msiexec /i <PACKAGENAME.MSI> /Le <LOGFILE.LOG>
NOTE: do NOT include the <...> (brackets), just use the filename.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
