Live Mesh Won't Reinstall RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have had some problems with Live Mesh not showing it was online when it was, not wanting to update, etc so I decided to repair then reinstall as some of the help had suggested.

    I now can't get Live Mesh to install.  Everytime I get the following error
    "Installer encountered errors.  No such interface supported.  Get more help (Error: 80004002)"

    Based on reading other threads I have tried the following:
    1. I checked Windows Update Agent.  It was a little old and i updated it


    2.  I ran the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility


    3.  I have checked Vista does not show the program is installed but when I try and install Live Mesh it says uninstalling before it tries to install.

    4. I tried running the installer from a command prompt with /repair  and that did not work

    5. I tried turning on UAC and doing an install due to old bugs that are supposed to be fixed.

    6. I could not find the listed registry entries to remove




    7.  I tried running the following three registry commands at a command prompt

    Regsvr32 %windir%\system32\vbscript.dll

    Regsvr32 %windir%\system32\scrrun.dll

    Regsvr32 %windir%\system32\wshom.ocx

    but that id not work

    What else am I missing?

    It used to work.

    I am running Windows Vista SP1 with an account that is a local admin,

    thanks for any thoughts and ideas

  • Hello, Alan.
    Please submit a bug report, though you may not have any logs.
    I suspect that you may have been using (in the past) one of the early beta builds of IE8 on this machine as that can cause a problem similar to what you are seeing. I don't know the solution, but hopefully the bug report will help.

    Note that you probably won't get a response to the bug report, though. It will be transferred to the internal system to be assigned to the appropriate development group.
