    Windows installer not starting


    I cannot install windows 10 updates or any program using the windows installer. I get 0x80070641 on windows update. Winver Home1803 64 bit.


    I have tried a number of solutions available on the web with no luck. One youtube video indicated the file msiexec.exe may be corrupt.


    Here is what I have tried:




    %windir%\system32\MSIEXEC.exe /unregister

    %windir%\system32\MSIEXEC.exe /REGSERVER

    %windir%\syswow64\MSIEXEC /unregister

    %windir%\syswow64\MSIEXEC /REGSERVER



    changed the ServicesPipeTimeout to x'180000'

    ran virus scans with avg,malwarebytes & mcafee nothing detected

    6/23 ran DISM tool to check for error to msiexec.exe completed sucessfully

    6/23 SFC no issues

    6/26 ran the troubleshooter for windows update


    One odd thing happened before this problem was noticed. I upgraded from win 7 to 10 during the free upgrade period. Windows was activated and remained so for months. One day, I noticed the activate windows watermark. I was able to activate the digital license using the activation troubleshooter. However, after the next reboot, the watermark again appeared. A number of solutions were offered and tried without success.


    I finally gave up. I could activate windows until the next restart. About the same time as the windows installer issue occurred, I noticed the watermark was gone. It remains gone after weeks of restarts and I don't know why!

    Step 1

    Step 2
    install all drivers from the cd that came with the god damn motherboard *common sense*
    Step 3
    update windows
    Step 4
    install misc etc crap like flash java etc etc
    Step 5
    Install GPU drivers
    Step 6
    go back to using your pc without issue.
