I recently ran Registry Clean Expert (RCE) and removed some file path references marked "doesnt exist". Now when I start or restart Vista or when I activate the Vista Gadgets sidebar via a toggle button on my keyboard, I get the messages: An installation package for the product "Destinations" cannot be found. Try the installation again using a valid copy of the installation package 'Destinations.msi" The only options are to click OK or close window via Red X button. If I click OK another box pops up with: The feature you are trying to use is on the CD-Rom or other removable disc that is not available. Insert the Destinations disk and click Ok. I inserted the Vista Disk but no file was found int the various folders. I searched my C drive for destinations.msi and for just .msi file and couldnt not find any on my pc. I had backed up my registry via RCE and reverted to a 2 day older version, but that has not resolved the issue.
I searched google for any references to error messages, or destinations.msi but didnt find any similar posts.
Honestly this is a minor annoyance, and i am planning to "rehash" this PC as I bought it in May and it came with their MS software versions, I had planned to reformat drives and reinstall our corp licensed products, just haven't gotten there yet.
My PC is a Micron Client Pro 585B, Intel Core 2 Quad, 3326mb Ram, 2x 250mb SATA drives, running Windows Vista (build 6000), Office 2007, several custom built SQL databases, and various other business apps. Has anyone run into this issue?? And YES, I will be much more careful using RCE file path reference task, or perhaps NOT using it at all as I caused this issue. Mea Culpa
