    Angry Error code 1722 while installing MSI programme on Windows 7 Help!!!

    Pleas someone help me before i throw my new samsung notebook up the wall.



    Just bought this with windows7 pre installed but i cannot install minitab 15 and get th error code 1722 then the istallation rolls back and removes what it had done. I have googled this and it seems to be a common problem with the windows installer when you install MSI programmes. Phoned Samsung who's Tech DPT said and i quote "I dont think this is anything to do with us i suggest you google it" and i also phones microsoft who woant to charge for the service as it was samsung who installed it. Please help i have tried many thing from google but no joy, has anyone els had this problem?

    There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected.

    Thumbs down

    Tried what tou said still no joy. Surley someone has had this issue and resolved it? and surely this should fall under the manufacturers fault when they installed the windows installer.

    Looks like i will have to sell this as it is now useless to me. Surley somene can help!

    Maybe you could try
    Windows Installer CleanUp Utility and uninstall failed setups installer remnants.
    Microsoft Download Center

    Select that (those) program(s )that were installed by Windows Installer from the Windows Installer CleanUp dialog box that failed.
    The utility removes only Windows Installer configuration information related to those programs.

    Hi all,


    Found out what this problem was in the end, the programme was not compatible with Windows 7 and needed the latest release for it to work. Thank you all anyway for your help.
