Re-installing NXT3 on fresh install Windows 10

Question

I know it's an old program suite but I own it and I still want to use it on my (sadly) freshly reinstalled Windows 10 (Home 64-bit) computer.

However, every time I try, even after moving the source files to the Desktop or even putting them in the root of the C: drive, I get the following error:

Does anyone have any ideas or can someone point me in the direction of a previous solution to this problem, please?

By the way, all of the original files from the previous installation are still on my E: drive - if only I could activate them!

Brabian,

It looks as if something has been corrupted in your installation.    

What shape or form are your source files please?   Are they a folder full of files like this, or a couple of large (> 1GB) .exe files?

Hi Brendon - and thanks for answering my post!

I'm using the original, downloaded "Part 1" and "Part 2" files but, significantly, when I've gone to check out AppData there is no Roxio folder!

So, I've used WinZip to extract all of the files and that folder accords, exactly, with yours! However, even knowing where the program is launching from, it still falls over when attempting to read the NXT3.msi file! So, I'm stumped, once more!

Interestingly, WinZip tells me the .msi file is not a valid archive! There may the problem!

Hi Brabian,

Excuse the delay please - I'm in a different time zone.   I am exploring some cunning plans, so I'll send you a private message.

In the meantime I've received exactly the same error trying to install NXT8!

Will I never live and learn??

Hi Ian,

You've got the same error with NXT3 and NXT8, have you tried installing any non-Roxio software that uses MSI?    [The Ookla speed test app at   https://www.speedtest.net/apps/windows  uses it if you can't find anything else handy]

If you're getting the same error when trying to install with two or more different MSI installer sets, your Windows 10 may be broken or maladjusted.  I'm not an expert on the Microsoft Installer (MSI) but I got pages of responses from my Google search for "Windows won't read .MSI files", and there might be some solutions there that help.

Regards, Brendon

Well - finally I received a solution from Corel to get my freshly purchased NXT8 to install - and, presumably, it would have worked for NXT3 as well - which was to create a new administrative account - freshly download the program and install it and, guess what? It worked! 

They must have been keeping this solution a secret to ensure older versions are not installed any longer to ensure they keep being paid! But - the truth is out, now!

Thanks for your help in the meantime, Brendon!
