    The description for Event ID 4373 from source Windows Installer 3.1 cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

    If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

    The following information was included with the event:

    Not enough storage is available to process this command.

    Event Xml:
    <Event xmlns="">
        <Provider Name="Windows Installer 3.1" />
        <EventID Qualifiers="49166">4373</EventID>
        <TimeCreated SystemTime="2012-06-27T17:48:44.000000000Z" />
        <Security />
        <Data>Not enough storage is available to process this command.

    Im not sure what is meant by Not enough storage availble to process this command because i have a 2tb HDD and 12gb of ram?. I have been searching on how to fix a problem that when i tried to install a simulator and i accidently installed it onto my desktop., I then deleted the folder but other things are still remaining on my computer. my gadgets are not functioning properly. I tried what was suggested in the following Microsoft answers forum that didnt fix it. and i have ran the sfc/scannow and chk/ntfs (not dirty) and chkdsk and those scan did not find anything wrong.

    what is recommended that i do about this issue?
