Reading my event viewer the other day I noticed a bunch of warnings from the 11th of March. The ID was 1050 and the source was MsiInstaller.
What could this mean: that the MsiInstaller is gone, damaged or something in between? would anything be prevented from happening in the future if I were to load any software?
It is most likely from the installer that was used that day.
Each piece of software comes with its own installer and each uses differing parts
of a program called MSI Installer. That program isnt actually on you computer but on the disk that contains the software.
