Windows 7: NSIS Error

20 Aug 2013   #1

Windows 7
NSIS Error

I'm getting a pop-up NSIS error - Error launching installer. I think it was after I uninstalled Comodo or zone alarm on one of my computers.

Can I check the "event viewer" to find out what program is causing the error. Or you have other suggestions on how to get rid of my annoying friend?

AutoRuns will show you what it set to run on startup. If it's an erroneous installer launch I'd check the RunOnce first. Typically that's set and then the machine is rebooted so the installer can get at files before they're locked by the system.

Thanks for the post. I found the culprit, it's was Comodo Dragon. I uninstalled it and all is well. I had re-installed Comodo firewall and that must have come along with.

NSIS error Launch installer


I have been getting this error for a short time, and latest updates have failed to install. Ran the DSS system but not that good on reading or finding the errors in these TXT files.

After reading some of the other problems with this error, I downloaded a package called Reimage did the scan and then discovered after the scan it would cost me 69.00, so deleted it. Did the removal using REVO uninstaller. Still got the problem, but then discovered some how a system called was now on my computer. Did some research and found using MS's uninstall that the system still thought Reimage was in system, tried to remove it using MS uninstall, and system just hung telling me it was removing it. After 5-8 minutes I killed it went back to Revo Uninstaller, found following on pc, conduit.con, and sweet-updater.
Got rid of both and did the restart. Still got the NSIS error. But a little disturbed at some systems forcing you to take garbage you did not ask for or told it not to install, and still get it in to the system. When I booted the system up this morning no ERROR. Not exactly sure where it went or what caused it to disappear, but until I don't see this for a few days, will be happy. :)
