I have had Roxio Creator LE10 installed for over 3 years without a moments trouble.  It is now halting during startup request the media be inserted for RCPCORE.MSI.  Repeatedly clicking Cancel does not work as it had has done for other users of this forum.   I have not been able to locate the correct RCPCORE.MSI to download from the web.

Creator was preloaded when I bought the PC so I do not have the media to do a re-installation.

I am running XP Pro SP3, the program runs OK after several clicks of Cancel when using other user accounts even though there is no RCPCORE.MSI present on the HDD.

Any ideas please?

I assume that is the Dell version included on the computer?  There should be some additional letters (DE for example) to identify whose version it is.  The OEM versions are supported by the company who put the original version on your computer.  You must go to them to get the fix.  They have have a download version for you.  Sorry.

If this is a very recent issue and you have not made a lot of changes to your computer, see if you have a Windows Restore Point available that you might be able to use.

In the future do not run any registry cleaners; even those that are part of an anti-virus program.

The RCPCORE.MSI file is renamed by Windows when it's installed. It's put in the Windows\Installer hidden directory as a alpha-numeric string. I'm not an expert on how the msi files are renamed, so it may be the same for every computer. Mine was renamed C:\Winodws\Installer\b93b.msi. You can find this in the registriy, look for the string 'roxio creator data'. or you can roll over all of the .msi's until the name pops up :(.  There is an MSI file for each component in the Roxio package, look for the one that "installs Roxio Creator". finally double click on that MSI and you should have an option to repair the file. Repair it, and if successful, your product should now be working correctly.

You are replying to a, almost year old thread.  The last time the poster was on line was about the same time.  It would be unusual if the original poster was available to read your message.   Thanks for posting that though.  It may help someone else.

Yeah, I know. But I just had the problem yesterday, and this seemed as good a place as any to put the(a) solution.

Thank you reg_edit!  That worked perfectly.  My Roxio Creator 10.1 suddenly started asking for the RCPCORE.msi file and simply would not run.  I would add that the Windows\Installer folder is doubly hidden.  The easiest way to get to it is to open a Windows Explorer window and just type in C:\Windows\Installer to get to the folder.  There are a gazillion files so you have to be very patient and put the cursor over each .msi file and read what it is for.  On my computer the Roxio installation file was called cd8d.msi, but this is apparently different on every computer.  Once I found it, I double-clicked on it, selected Repair, and now my Roxio works again.

Aha!  It did!

I'd thank reg_edit too, except he hasn't been here since March 1 last year.
