Cannot open WHS restoreCD.msi RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have downloaded the latest WHS RestoreCD.msi from www. microsoft.com/download.
    When trying to run/install this file I get the message:
    "This installation package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is valid Windows Installer package."
    My Windows installer is  version 4.5.6.6001.22159.
    Also tried:
     - disabling Antivirus
     - emtying temp folders.
    Is there anywhere I can get the iso file without the msi wrapper?

  • You have probably encountered a corrupt download.  Try downloading the file again.

  • I need a bootable restore CD as I am unable to boot the system to install the restorecd.msi file.  My original restore CD was bootable.  Is there another download that I need to use?  This appears to be a very daunting task based on what I read.

  • Create one on another computer.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
