Windows 7: Windows Installer - can't install ANY msi package

18 Jan 2009   #31

Windows 7 Beta
 
 

Well, I did the restore and things started working again... but then as soon as I installed something else, now I've got the same problem over again. At least I have my "essential" programs already installed.

There is a thread on the Microsoft Technet Forums discussing this bug, too:

Someone in the MS Technet forum posted a workaround. It seems to work:

Quote:
start regedit
navigate to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SQMClient\Windows\DisabledSessions
rename MachineThrottling to _MachineThrottling

i think they found a solution:

start regedit
navigate to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SQMClient\Windows\DisabledSessions
rename MachineThrottling to _MachineThrottling

Good find espressoman,

I found this elsewhere, so I take no credit.

start regedit
navigate to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SQMClient\Windows\DisabledSessions
rename MachineThrottling to _MachineThrottling

Solved the issue for me.

It works. I changed the registry entry and tried to install an app that I was having problems with. No need to reboot, just change the registry setting and try installing apps.

Finally we have a solution and its working. I was on that forum few hours ago but the solution was recently posted. Though looking at it you think how does it relate to problem we were having. But it works. Cheers guys.

Heh. No idea why this fix would work. I'm happy, though. Solved my headache for the day. However, we'll probably figure out later that it broke something else. ;-)

Problem with MSI installers (started recently)

Please try deleting the following registry key and running setup for your applications again:


HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SQMClient\Windows\DisabledSessions

Cordially,
