Recently I re-installed my Windows 7 Home 32 bit. At a moment I realized that almost no installer is working. For example this installer from Microsoft web site: http://content.systemrequirementslab.com/global/bin/intel_srldetect_4.5.13.0.msi When I start it is shows its interface for about 0.5 seconds then it disappear. No error messages. Nothing.

Same behavior for dotNetFx35setup.exe (but for this, there are no messages in Event Viewer).

How do I fix this?

UPDATE

I get these messages in EVENT VIEWER:

  1. Beginning a Windows Installer transaction: G:\KIT\DRIVERI\Toshiba Qosmio X505 Q860\Chipset\Intel driver update utility.msi. Client Process Id: 3224.

  2. Starting session 0 - ‎2013‎-‎07‎-‎12T18:09:53.945993900Z.

I downloaded MS installer from MS web site (Windows6.0 installer-KB942288-v2-x86). It is not working also. It says: "Windows Update Standalone Installer-The update is not applicable to your computer." But this is the 32 bit installer for Win 7 and I DO have win 7 32 bits.

  • Did you check the event viewer for errors? Also, make sure the installer service is not disabled. Start->Run, type services.msc. look for "Windows Installer". Make sure the Startup type is Manual and you can try starting it. – xxl3ww Jul 12 '13 at 18:14
  • @xxl3ww - yes, it is set to manual and it says 'started'. – Rigel Jul 12 '13 at 18:16
  • I believe Windows6.0 installer-KB942288-v2-x86 is for Vista and previous versions of Windows. If you run "msiexec -" from a command prompt it will show what version you're running. I'm running 5.0.7601.17514 right now and I'm on Windows 7 Pro – xxl3ww Jul 12 '13 at 18:27
  • test a 7zip installer 7-zip.org/download.html. I don't think anything is wrong with your Windows Installer – xxl3ww Jul 12 '13 at 18:28
