    Default Installation fails: Installation ended prematurely because of an error

    Been awhile since I've been here so I hope this is where this post goes.
    Recently I had to uninstall a program, and now when I try to re-install it I get the following error:



    "Installation ended prematurely because of an error"

    I have installed other program without a hitch since I first tried to install the problem program.

    It gives me no error code just the message above.
    I've searched the internet (I hate the term searched the web) and have found numerous "fixes" yet none have worked.
    I know the info above is sparse, so if anyone thinks they can help please let me know what I can add for your help.

    Thanks,

    Bobb

    Some things you could try - in no particular order:

    Clear your Temp folder. Type %TEMP% in Run box to open it. Dlete all its contents. Run Disk Cleanup Tool too. Then try to install it.

    Else try to install it in Clean Boot state.

    Check if your Windows Installer service is up and running. Open services.msc and ensure that the Windows Installer service is set to Manual. Start it manually if it is not started. If it refuse to start, this post may help you.

    Else visit this link. Download SafeMSI and enable the Windows Installer Service in Safe Mode. Then try to install it.

    Hope something helps!
