Hello,

If it's a Windows 7 64-Bit OS then you could try these steps !!

Click Start and select Run.
The Run dialog box appears. In the Select field, type regedit.
Navigate to the following registry key:
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSIServer

Locate the WOW64 REG_DWORD entry on the right pane.




  • Right-click on WOW64 entry and select Modify. Change the Decimal value from 1 to 0then click OK.
  • Close the Windows Registry.
  • Reboot the computer.
  • Attempt the installation process again.
  • and press
Hope this helps,
Captain

Yes, it's Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit system.

I looked into the regedit, but didn't find the WOW64
I thing it's the right place I found ?.

To explain a bit more. I have had Nero 10 installed, but there are instances still on the computer, that I cannot find and uninstall.

I unsinstalled it using RevoUninstaller, as It is the best uninstaller I have met.

But to confess, some of the Nero instances are hand removed :-)

Hello !!

If your trying to remove Nero there is a Nero Cleanup Tool that you can download it's quite powerful tool which used to cleanup almost all entries.

  • Download the program, unzip it, and double-click the Nero General CleanTool.exe file to start running it. No installation required.
  • After the program lists the Nero products that are installed in your computer, you can select which program you want to remove. There is a manual find button in case you notice that there is a product that isn’t listed in the main window. In other words, if the automatic searching is failed to detect all installed Nero products, you can search it manually by clicking the manual find button.
  • If the ones you want to remove are already listed and you have selected which to be uninstalled, then click the clean button to perform the Nero clean uninstallation.
  • Restart your Windows.
Download Nero General Clean Tool to uninstall Nero


Hope this helps,
Captain

I'm an old Nero user, and I know the clean tool.

But this time I have forgotten it, and get into trouble, because I cannot find a way
to uninstall it.
As mentioned, some of the Nero has been removed manually by me, the fool.

So maybe I need to reinstall Windows 7 Ultimate here.

Thanks anyway for your information

Try the latest version of Windows Installer if that didn't works as suggested before a Repair Install might fix it.

I would do the repair, and had the media in the drive.
I entered setup.exe, but shortly, I got the info, that the system couldn't
handle the media in the drive.
At the present I install W7U-64bit on another HDD.
Maybe I will try to get the other onstalled fixed one or another way.
