Windows 7: Windows Installer Keep Re-running

03 Nov 2009   #1

Win 7 RTM 32-bit
Windows Installer Keep Re-running

I upgraded from XP to Win 7 (RTM) Ultimate 32-bit using the Laplink Upgrade Advisor tool. It did a good job; almost perfect. Not everything got transferred but great majority of applications did. Worth the $20.

Adobe CS3 apps wouldn't run, but I used an Adobe tool to fix that. Outlook indexing was not working; fixed that. However, I do not see Acrobat listed as an available printer, and have been unable to fix that.

When I'd run Outlook or send the first e-mail after starting Outlook the Windows Installer would pop up several windows saying it was configuring ... Visio! I could run other Office 2007 apps (Word, Excel, PPT, ...) but not Visio. Message said it was not installed for the current user (it had worked fine under XP, as did the other Office apps).

Got the Visio 2007 Pro disk and did a repair. After several tries that seemed to fix the problem with Outlook, and Visio now runs, but every time I drag a symbol to the page Windows Installer runs again. Something is broken re Windows 7 "knowing" what's installed.

So for the most part things are working but I still have the problems of 1) no Acrobat as a printer and 2) Windows INstaller running over and over when I'm in Visio.

Any suggestions from you folke who clearly know a lot more than I do about Windows 7?
