Error message 1719

Postby mybowlsbag » Sun Jun 26, 2011 5:18 am

This is where the windows installer cannot be accessed because it appears not to be registered or enabled properly.
Any ideas would be appreciated

Repair Error 1719 in Windows 7

In most cases the error can be fixed by re-registering the msiexe.exe file. Simply start a command prompt (Start menu > Run > type “cmd” (without the quotes) and at the top of the list you should see cmd.exe. Right Click it and select Run As Administrator).

When the window opens type “msiexec /unregister” (without the quotes) and press Enter. Next type “msiexec /regserver” (without the quotes) and press Enter again. Now reboot the computer and see if the problem is fixed.

Note that for the 64-bit version of Windows 7, you will also need to run this command “C:\Windows\Syswow64\Msiexec /regserver” (without the quotes) to re-register the 64-bit version of the installer.
If this does not solve the issue, try to boot Windows in Safe Mode (F8 during startup) and repeat the previous steps.

Hopefully all will be well after running the steps outlined by Gary. If not, please describe which program you are trying to install when getting the error.

I am trying to down load an update to Adobe Reader and now getting error code 1601. By the way nothing happened after doing the re-register or the SAfe mode method.
Thanks for your support

Hi,

At this point I think that we could better help you if you can give some background about what may have started these error messages. For example, which version of Windows 7 do you run and is it 32-bit or 64-bit? Did your computer come with it or did you do an upgrade from Vista? Have you had any other problems With Windows 7 prior to these problems? Did these error messages start to occur after you made any changes to your system, such as a successful software installation but failed installations from that point forward? Have you tried System Restore? How much free space is left on your hard drive (related to error 1601)? Have you tried running sfc /scannow? If not,l look at Gary's article here: http://www.internetfixes.com/blog/?m=201001&paged=3 The 1/25/2010 entry talks about Vista but it should be the same for Windows 7.

Some programs install more smoothly if your antivirus protection is temporarily disabled. Have you tried this?

I know that these are a lot of questions but the more information that you can provide the better we can try to help you. I have done troubleshooting at work for 14 years and I always gather as much information that I can from the user before deciding how I'll approach the remedy. The times that I've gotten stuck have often been the times where the user eventually said, "Oh, I forgot to tell you that I ....." Once that information was shared it often was the "missing piece" that I needed.

Thanks all of you for tryinh to help.
It is Windows 7 Home premium 32 bit. It is a new lap top for my wife(HP Probook 4510s)
I only noticed the error when trying to load from disc her camera software which would probably be pre W7 and trying to update Adobe at their prompt.
When you say turn off Anti vyrus. I don't understand how this helps when the message says WIdows installer may not be correctly installed. Anyway I'll try it.

Hi,

I have done a lot of research on this and have found some information about steps to take but none of them look that easy. Before I discuss any of them I still need a little clarification.
1. Did you try System Restore to a point before you tried installing the camera software?
2. Did you try uninstalling Adobe Reader completely and reinstalling it? Personally, I have not used Adobe Reader in years. I use Foxit Reader, which works just as well as Adobe Reader and is less of a security risk. I also have uninstalled Adobe Reader and installed Foxit Reader for all of the teachers at our school and nobody misses having Adobe.
3. Did you try running sfc /scannow?
4. Can you install any other software or are you just getting the error messages for the camera software and Adobe Reader?

You could try Microsoft's support: http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/?ws=support
I would check to see if all options are free. When I last used their support to help a fix friend's Windows Vista laptop (when it was the most current OS) it was free at that time.

Hi,

I would try System Restore to a point before you installed the camera software. Your first post of the problem was dated prior to July 1st so I would pick a date earlier than that to try to get you back to where things were before you did any installations that triggered the error.

Re: sfc, please read Microsoft's article and see if it helps you run it. Note the steps described to run it with administrative privileges:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833

By now you may have contacted Microsoft and successfully gotten help from them. If not, please keep the following in mind when doing any more troubleshooting steps:
1. Be sure that you have all of your files backed up in case of any system crash that occurs when trying any fixes.
2. Before changing anything in the registry, if asked to do so, be sure that you back up the registry.
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/wind ... e-registry

Next, you may wish to create a manual restore point before trying each troubleshooting step or application listed below:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/wind ... tore-point

Re: Adobe not uninstalling, you might try this application which will run completely from a thumb drive and doesn't require any installation process:
http://download.cnet.com/IObit-Uninstal ... 61625.html
I use this from time to time at work for stubborn applications that won't uninstall, using the deep cleaning feature.

Also, you may want to try this software called CCleaner to check your registry. I use it all the time:
http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file/f ... ption.html

When you said "tried some other software" what was the name of it? The specifics might help me help you. This is the link to Foxit Reader, if that's what you were looking for, and it is compatible with Windows 7:
http://www.foxitsoftware.com/products/reader/


And finally, if any one of these suggestions and links is not clear or if you need further clarification please post back before trying anything that you're not comfortable doing.
