I have MS Windows Server 2008 x64 and some MSI installation file.
Inside of this MSI I have some .dll file that should be installed by this MSI,
This .dll is suppose to configure ISAPI filters for IIS7.

But for some reason once I am running MSI installation, somewhere in the middle I am getting error message -
"Error 2753. The file 'myLib.dll' is not marked for installation."
Prior this operation product was uninstalled from the Win server and uninstall was interrupted.

So the Questions:
1. How windows installer is working? Internals? Step by Step?
2. Is there anyway fix this manually?

    If you have the DLL available, can't you just manually register it?

    Accepted Solution

    Type “regsvr32 /u filename.dll” where “filename” is the name of the DLL that you are trying to unregister

    Otherwise, use system restore to roll back to a point before you attempted installation, and let me know what results.

    Thank you.

    When I type

    “regsvr32 /u filename.dll”

    I am getting error that "DllRegisterServer and DllUnregisterServer" are not implemented.

    How to implement them? If so? Maybe there is another way to cleanup such filename.dll from OS?

    I saw also that there is
    how to implement it easy?
