    Windows installer for 7

    Is there any way to reinstall Windows installer 5.0 for Windows 7. I believe that version 5.0 is not available for download.

    Thanks for any help.

    You can try the SFC /SCANNOW Command here' the link to explain further;http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...ker.html?ltr=S

    The above url pretty much explains the solution.

    This link from MS shows all installer packages and states the Windows Installer package is available. Link near bottom to go to installer page.

    You should not separately install components released with Windows 7. Chowur's post #2 is the appropriate method.

    I'm curious as to what is making you think you need to reinstall it?
