#7 Windows Installer


I'm using Windows 7 Pro x64. When I doubleclick the ClassicShellSetup_3_5_0.exe file I receive this dialog (see attachment). What can I do? I've already searched for days for a solution to this, including googleling, sfc /scannow, compatibility mode, starting msiexec with command line argument, ect.. On my other windows installation everything works fine with the same file. I want to use this programm urgently. Please can anybody help?

    1. Install the free tool called Default Programs Editor from http://defaultprogramseditor.com/
    2. Start Default Programs Editor, click File Type Settings, click Context Menu, in the search box, search for MSI
    3. Select .msi in the "File extension" column, click Next.
    4. Now double click "Install" from the list of commands. If there is no command called "Install", click the Add button.
    5. Make sure the command name is: &Install and the Program path is: msiexec /i "%1" %*
    6. Click Next.
    7. Select the "Install" command in the list and click the blue link called "Set selected command as default".
    8. Click "Save Context Menu". And close Default Programs Editor.

    Now see if double clicking the EXE gives the same message. If this doesn't work, it may be a permissions issue with the Temp folder.
