Hey guys hopefully someone can help me with this. I recently relocated all the software/files from an old PC to my new one using PC Relocater. Both machines were XP SP3, and I transferred all programs and files. Many programs will open and run successfully. However, some will not. When I go to reinstall these applications I get an error message saying "Installer has encountered an error and needs to close" send error report or not. I have tried unregistering / reregistering msiexec, rolling back to SP2, reinstalling SP3, deleting the InstallShield dir in common files and still get the same error when installing any application. Any other suggestions?

If it was just the software & files that you moved from the old PC to the new PC, it won't work. The softwares has to be installed on the new PC for it to work and they need to be integrated with the Windows registry that resides on the new PC. This explain why you are kept getting the error messages. In light of what you told us you have done afterward, I think you may need to start afresh with Windows reinstallation.
