[PC] Installation - .msi installer will not launch

Recommended Posts

Flamninja

I am using Windows Vista with all updates installed.  I am using Chrome to download file and file does download and I can view the .msi file in my downloads folder but the installer will not launch.  I have tried to right click the installer file and select install from the menu but it will still not launch.  Any help is appreciated.

Hey there!
 

My first suggestions would be to delete all old installer files from your computer, reboot it, and try from another web browser.

 

Let us know if this helps. :)

I have tried deleting downloads and rebooting.  I have tried from both internet explorer and chrome.  It seems to download the file fine however the file will not launch after downloading.  Any ideas?  Thank you very much.

Hi Flamninja,

 

Please right click on the .msi file and select the option to run it as Administrator.

 

If that does not work, your Windows Installer service may be disabled.

 

Start Menu -> Search Box -> type Services.msc and hit ENTER. Look for the service titled Windows Installer and make sure that it is enabled.
