and select 'Run as Administrator'

** Close out of any open programs before moving to the following steps

3. In command prompt, type 'msiexec /unregister' (without quotes and with a space between msiexec and /unregister)
4. Press enter
5. Type 'msiexec /regserver' (without quotes and with a space between msiexec and /regserver)
6. Press enter
7. Type 'net stop msiserver' (without quotes and with spaces between net and stop {and} stop and msiserver)
8. Press enter
9. Type 'net start msiserver' (without quotes and with spaces between net and start {and} stop and msiserver)
