Thread: "Turn windows features on or off" dialog box appear always empty.

    Default "Turn windows features on or off" dialog box appear always empty.

    Hello everybody.
    I'm running Vista 64bits, and since long time ago, the "Turn windows
    features on or off" dialog box appear always empty.
    I run System File Checker (SFC.exe) tool with the sfc /scannow command as
    mentioned in the kb 931712 but dint solve the problem.
    The same kb told to make a system restore, but does not apply because the
    oldest restore point I have is newer than the problem.

    Anybody has an idea?

    Navigate to key

    HKLM\COMPONENTS
    and check if exist the following values:

    STOREDIRTY
    PENDINGXMLDENTIFIER
    NEXTQUEUEENTRYINDEX
    ADVANCEDINSTALLERSNEEDRESOLVING
    if you find anyone of them remove it

    Check Windows Features dialog box or optionalfeatures.exe is blank or empty in Vista

    Maybe other unnecassary values in *HKLM\Components* cause this.See
    figure which I attached and look at right panel:If you have apart of
    them any other values in right panel->remove them

    Question:What kind of DVD did you use to install Vista?DVD Vista SP1
    integrated original by Microsoft or by using WAIK or you used vLite and
    you integrated with SP1 for all languages this means with this
    ->'Download details: Windows Vista Service Pack 1 All Language
    Standalone (KB936330)'
    (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en)
    I had the same problem with the system created from DVD Vista
    integrated with SP1 for all languages by vLite but contrary when I used
    WAIK it wasn't this trouble,thus I ask you about it. I lost many time to
    find this reason but I found were some errors in key

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\COM PONENT BASED
    SERVICING\PACKAGES
    If it is not what I had try
