Question

My computer crashed and I had to do an inplace upgrade. Thats were you reinstall windows back into the same location on top of the old copy. I have reinstalled all my apps and every thing is working great except emc8. When ever I launch one of the emc apps it will launch windows installer and try to reload a componant. I have tried letting to do it's thing but it just keeps doing it over and over. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but that does not help. I have also tried deleting the directory and runing windows install clean up but that still did not help. I am not sure what to do. I think there is part of the app that was still there when I did the inplace upgrade but I can't for the life of my figure out what. I was also thinking that it might be part of the updater app as it runs with all the apps and I can't think of any thing else that would do that. Please help

Re installing Windows on top of Windows has always been problematic and works maybe 5% of the time - it seems you are in the 95 % area unfortunately. It seems that whatever the original problem you had with Windows is affecting the system and is still there (albeit acting differently)

 

Your best bet is to get all your data off to removable media (pen drive, second hard drive or even a CD if you can manage it), re-format and do a complete clean install.
