windows installer parameter window

I am trying to installer BB Desktop software and a Windows Installer window appears listing all on the parameters used by msiexec.exe. If you click OK the window closes and the installation stops. I have tried updating to v 4.5, same problem; uninstalled and reinstalled same problem; ran a registry repair utility, same problem; install in Safe Mode same issue

Usuaully this is because you are not on the latest windows installer or you have not installed the ISScript.exe that is on the CD.

When you get that window, it probably means that it's just running msiexec.exe without any commands.

Hey,

Thanks for your quick response.

The program I am trying to install is a downloaded exe from Blackberry. I also tried the ltest version of Windows installer and it didn't work either.

 I did find a thread that orangutang was involved in that required the deleting of the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTKEY\MSIpackage key and running the msi_assoc.zip fix.

I have done that, and, erroneously deleted the MSIupdate key as well, thinking is was the Update that I ran for installer to bring it from 3.1 to 4.5. Now the profile doesn't load, even though it loads in Safe Mode. I Imported an MSIUpdate key from a similar machine and the profile still isn't loading. Once I have restored the profile I will report back.

Have you tried running:
msiexec /unreg
msiexec /regserver
and
regsvr32 msi.dll
?

Thanks for the response orangutang. I ended up rebuilding the machine. It came from a different company and needed to be rebuilt anyway. The Windows Installer issue just expedited the inevitable. Thanks for you help
