Register

I haven't tried this myself but if you have serious Windows Installer problems (perhaps error "1719") either a reinstallation or perhaps the following command might fix it:

msiexec.exe /unregister

Followed by:

msiexec.exe /regserver

Apparently a second process needs reregistration on 64 bit Windows. For more information (or if the above doesn't work) and its possible that the above may only work when performed in "safe mode", have a look at the information in "KB315346".
