Windows Installer Cleanup Utility


As someone familiar with repairing installer issues manually, I was surprised to find they had issued a tool to help. Windows Installer Cleanup Utility crucialy zaps the files in the c:\windows\installer directory for the application you chose and removes registry entries so you can restart a failed installation.

1) Download & Install from http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;290301

2) Run from 'start > all programs > windows install cleanup'

3) Select the program you wish to cleanup.
