  • Hi,

    Someone got it working by a system restore. Let us have a try.

    If the issue persists, run regedit.exe, navigate to HKLM\COMPONENTS

    search for the following three keys:

    PendingXmldentifier, NextQueueEntryIndex, AdvancedInstallersNeedResolving

    and delete them.

    Please make a backup before any modificaton on registry.

    Regards,
