Couldn't hurt, I'll give that a try tomorrow and post results.

Appreciate all suggestions,
Hello, new day, success...............

I did the SFC /SCANNOW elevated cmd 3 times with no problems being detected.

I tried again to install Cliplets using elevated cmd ending with same failure.

I ran M/S FixIt 50809.msi, which reported successful fix. Not really sure what that fixed, but I think it just restarted Windows Installer (or)?

Next, troubled by repeated message re: where I was installing Cliplets (Program Files/Microsoft/etc) I created a Cliplets directory under Program Files (x86)/Microsoft/ and it successfully loaded and ran.

Once again I thank you all for the support, you're a great group.
