Unable to install Windows Installer Clean Up to help remove Windows Installer!
I recently got a new laptop at work. My old one had Windows Installer Clean Up installed - my new one does not.
However, my new laptop (possibly due to roaming profiles) believes that I still have it installed. And when I try and install a new version of it, it refuses because it thinks I already have it installed. As a result I can't load the tool that I need to remove the 'ghost' version that the system seems to think is still there.
The error that I get is -
"Error 1714. the older version of Windows Installer Clean Up cannot be removed. Contact your technical support group."
Sadly my technical support group haven't the foggiest. Does anyone have any suggestions for what I can do to solve this?
