Popup box mystery
« on: January 26, 2013, 12:41:06 AM »
I am trying to figure out how to stop the popup message.

This issue also happened after I changed an admin account to a power user.

You might post the question in a software development group,
as someone there might have seen this.

Microsoft uses a "stub loader" program for some of their
downloads. At one time, we had to download entire DVDs worth
of stuff, to get a 5KB program. To avoid that from
happening, Microsoft broke out the download, into say
a 4MB "Tools" download and a 1GB "Development Library"
or whatever. A user downloads the stub loader, runs
the small program, and it puts up a menu with tick
boxes, so you can choose just the components you want.

It sounds like, either the stub loader has been triggered
somehow. Or, an MSI the stub loader stored somewhere, is
being passed to the Windows Installer.



Take care,

My first guess would be that the program is unable to access (write) its files or registry settings since these were created with admin rights, while it now runs with lesser privileges.
Complete removal (as admin -- uninstall, then hunt for any settings files in 'Application Data' and/or 'Local Settings', and delete any used registry keys) and then reinstall as your normal user should fix it.

It does the same thing when run from an admin account ?

I am also trying to figure why I can't save Word documents ?

I will try a re-install.
