Okay...I have a little problem.
I am trying to Organize & Fix some "Services" running on My System & needed to get into the "Add/Remove Windows Components" Section in the Windows Installer Program but when I try to gain Access to this Particular Area I get a Red X Error that I DO NOT get elsewhere in the Installer. I can Get Into & Use the "Change or Remove Programs" section Fine, & the "Set Program Access Defaults" Opens Fine too!! Its just the "Windows Components" section that I get this error!!??
The Error Reads:
"Setup Was Unable To Load the Master Information File"
& then When I Hit <OK> I get Another Red X Message that Reads:
" The Application Could Not Be Initialized ".
Now, I have NO clue how long its been like this. I cant even remember the last time I went into the "Windows Components" area before, but I did just get done installing a Package of .Net Frameworks that included .Net Framework 2.0, 3.0 & 3.5...as this Oldie Computer only had 1.1, so I dont know if maybe this effected it or not.
I would be extremely GRATEFUL for any help at restoring my access to this area & correcting this issue...Please?
Can I maybe Reinstall Windows Installer & maybe it would fix whatever is wrong?
ANY Helpful Information or Suggestions would be MORE then Appreciated!!!
