Windows Installer Update not installed

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics (More info?)

MS has downloaded an update Windows Installer 3.1 but it won't
install. Where do I go for help?

My system is XP SP2 with 1gig RAM, tons of HD space.
I have run a Repair and SFC /Scannow.

Many thanks for any help.

    Hi,

    > Where do I go for help?

    Here is fine, you could also use:
    news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsoft.public.windowsupdate

    Is there an error code?

    Click start/run, type %windir%/windowsupdate.log and click ok. Scroll to the
    bottom (most recent activity), see if you can find the event failure and
    copy/paste that into a reply to this post.

    Thanks Chuck

    I now get an error message "KB89380v2 Setup Error - Access is denied -
    Installation did not completely install.

    It then re-booted and said "Installer not completely restored and may
    not work" - sorry, not verbatim but to that effect.

    Go to control panel, add/remove programs and remove it. Then try to install it
    again.

    It is not in add/remove, Chuck. It rolls back everything and then
    re-boots.

    Rick, once again you've made my day! Thanks.

    I had bought a new, custom built, computer, and, for the first time
    ever, had an OEM O/S installed. I was not aware they had not set
    full permissions for me, the only user. I had to do Method 3 and
    Method 4.

    I missed the error code by re-booting after the failed install -
    pressing stop would have shown it to me.
    Many thanks for your help.

    JD

    Hi, I am new here.
    I have the same thread problem here but I have WinXP sp2 in italian
    language here...
    Any difference in those reparing methods for that?
    I still get the same error during the installing process.
    Thanks for help,
    Giò
