    msiexec.exe (XP SP1)

    I just got a new copy of Drive Image 2002 and it won't install because of a problem with msiexec.exe. I get the error 1607 which according to MS is "component not registered", and that Installation package could not be opened. Verify that it exists. Norton System Dr. had commented on this before but it hadn't been a problem with installation on anything else. I sent an email request to Power Quest, but no response. Their web page says to go to Program FilesCommon FilesInstall ShieldDriver7Intel 32Driver.exe/REGSERVER. Well I have a 6 instead of a 7 and no file REGSERVER. I searched the XP CD and it didn't find it there. My Windows Installer is V. 200.2600.1106. Any help on this would be appreciated. I went to the MS help site and also Tech Net, which was mostly over my head and didn't get any answers.

    Thanks

    Consider this:
    Solution: Error 1607 "Unable to install InstallShield Scripting Runtime"
    Solution: Error 1607 File record marked free, File %lu

    In the future, when installing new programs, do it from Start | Control Panel | Add or Remove Programs | Add new Program button and follow the wizard, rather then running setup file from Windows Explorer or AutoPlay.

    Thanks for the idea to install Drive Image through the Control Panel. I wasn't aware of using that method but it worked and that's what counts, after all, isn't it. So thanks again.
