Windows 7: Win 7 inplace upgrade as non-destructive repair ???

Torchwood-

1) I do not see 0800713 anywhere. The event viewer Event ID is 1039 for every entry.

2) HKCR\Installer\Products currently has only a Default REG_SZ entry, and many sub-keys for other products, but not O365 or Office. However, I uninstalled C2R and O365 last week as thoroughly as I could so I don't think the current data is meaningful. What were you looking for?

Hi Ginz,
those were both possible causes of the error code.
just hoping to save you a bit of effort.
notes
the error code i quoted will ONLY be in the script output - not event viewer
If ANY version of Office and the like is in the product registry then it DID NOT Uninstall correctly.

The only other things i can think of is that both Netframework and Visual basics could be interferring make sure thier upto date.

Hi Ginz,
was looking at a totally diff thread reminded me of something
Avast has been causing problems with updates by changing certain registry keys and causing a roll-on permissions problem.
try uninstalling it with THIER removal tool in SAFE mode.

Roy - Thanks for your interest, and I think you're teaching me something new --

Q - What is the "script output" in this case? How do I look for this?

Now, I don't personally think that a "non-destructive repair" of my Win 7 Pro 64-bit will fix the problem I have with the 67 registry keys not being modified when I install or update O365. But, anyway, I've been doing some more reading about "non-destructive repair" if I end up trying it. There are two possible issues before I even get started.

First - I've succeeded in downloading a Win 7 Pro 64-bit img file from Microsoft Windows and Office ISO Download Tool, but that source and some other folks warn that, on my Dell system, I might need the "COEM" version and not the plain version. What do you think? My machine is a Dell Optiplex 7010 Mini-Tower - see my specs below - and I originally installed the Win 7 from an extra Dell CD that Dell was kind enough to send me (not from a plain vanilla Microsoft CD).

Second - before I do anything with the Win 7 Pro 64-bit img file, should I first try to use NTLite (for the first time ever) to integrate into the Win 7 Pro 64-bit img file the updates that Ed Bott recommends at Four steps to reduce the pain of Windows 7 installations using cumulative updates - Tech Pro Research ?

Third - if your answer to "Second" is yes, please note how Ed recommends first installing KB3020369: April 2015 Servicing Stack Update for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 and then installing his others. I've never used NTLite, but I'm guessing it doesn't work in stages (or does it)? How do I do things in the order Ed Bott recommends?

Thanks !!!

Do you mean try uninstalling O365 with Avast's removal tool? I didn't know Avast had a removal tool.

By the way, on at least one attempt to re-install O365, I put Avast in suspend mode. Didn't help.

Hi Ginz,

Scrub output error

When you followed the directions in another forum,
yeah been checkin to see what else youve done
You ran a set of command line scripts to remove registry entries, this is run outside of the normal windows enviroment, therefor nothing will appear in the windows log
after each script command you will see either, error and the reason code or success,
hence my comment re 0x800713.
They are not stored, as far as i know, just trying to jog your memory.

Non destructive repair
Dell like to do quirky things in THEIR BIOS set-ups.
So if the recovery discs are labelled
Re-Insallation disc for use only on a Dell system
I would use them
note they will also contain the specific drivers for your system, the drawback being it might not include SP1.(lots of updating)

The generic iso you have will not auto-activate i suspect, you would have to use the COA sticker key on your comp. DO NOT post it, its your unique backup ID
COEM iso should/may auto activate, thats the only major difference.
Its no big deal getting a COEM SP1 for you, only 55 updates
(i know its 55, clean installed mine beginning Jan).
Not used Nlite, my 55 includes 3 special kb's to install first OFFLINE, to speed up the process
i can post a link/tutorial

Avast
I meant uninstall Avast
suspending it during Office install will make no difference, the registry entries are outside of that mode.
