Using Windows Server 2003 R2

Software Installs and Uninstalls take about 30 minutes to complete.  During this time msiexec is using about 50% of the CPU time.

Would it help to run msicuu ?  If not, what do you recommend?

I am concerned about registry corruption from msicuu.

Thanks

I've used it on servers many times to fix a screwed up msi install. No problem so far, and I've probably used it 20 times over the years on many different installs.

Thanks,
