Hello.  I am running Visual Basic programs on a Citrex box.  Everytime I open or run a VB program on the box its popping up the Windows Installer and loading SR1 or something.  Any idea what I need to do to fix this?  Thanks

Does it just go away? If it pops up with an error, please post it here.

If it goes away by itself after a minute, then go to windowsupdate.microsoft.com and get the latest updates.

Run SFC /SCANNOW

Run CHKDSK /F

If VB is installed on that computer, make sure you are running the current Service Pack.

If all of that fails, run the Windows Installer cleanup utility here (and read about it) here:

I hope this helps.

JMiller no error.  If I open a VBP file right off the bat it comes up.  Windows installer.  Office SR1 starts running its install then it goes away and I am fine.  But its coming up everytime.

Did my suggestion of using the Windows Installer cleanup utility work?

If so, can you let me know why the choice of a B grade was given here. This is usually reserved for situations where the expert was unclear or the expert took too long to provide an answer. I hope this was not the case...

The grade given directly affects the points given to an experts. The lower the grade given, the less points an expert receives. However, the question asker gives up the same amount of points regardless of the grade given.

I hope that everything went well and your question was indeed answered...



How Do I Know What Grade to Give?
Although we use an A-D scale here at Experts Exchange, it works differently than, say, school grades. If one or more Experts' proposals are accepted as answers, they should usually be given an A or B grade, since they have taken the time to provide you with a working solution. If a possible solution is incomplete - ask for clarification or details before accepting the answer and grading it. People should not be given lower grades because of incorrect grammar or because you just accepted their answer or comment to close the question. Keep in mind, your question and any follow-up comments should be focused so that there can be a specific answer. The following is a good guideline to follow when grading:

A: The Expert(s) either provided you with a thorough answer or they provided you with a link to information that thoroughly answered your question. An "A" can also be given to any answer that you found informative or enlightening beyond the direct question that you asked.

B: The Expert(s) provided an acceptable solution, or a link to an acceptable solution, that you were able to use, although you may have needed a bit more information to complete the task.

C: Because Experts' reliability are often judged by their grading records, many Experts would like the opportunity to clarify if you have questions about their solutions. If you have given the Expert(s) ample time to respond to your clarification posts and you have responded to each of their posts providing requested information; or if the answers, after clarification, lack finality or do not completely address the issue presented, then a "C" grade is an option. You also have the option here of just asking Community Support to delete the question.

Remember, the Expert helping you today is probably going to be helping you next time you post a question. Give them a fair chance to earn an 'Excellent!' grade and they'll provide you with some amazing support.
