Solution 1:

You have virtualized an old machine or a local disk where the %TEMP% was located as exmaple d: or e: does not exist anymore. Or you don’t have correct write permission on the %temp% folder. (maybe Lock of malware)

Fix the %TEMP% variable and you should be able to use Windows Installer. Reboot the client and try again.

Or use commandline to check where it points:

Cmd.exe

Set | find /i “temp”

Or just

set


Also check the temp file in your user profile appdata


Solution 2:

Re-register Windows Installer Service (No feedback is fine 😉


Solution 3:

Check Permission on Windows Installer Reg key


Solution 4:

Check the whole windows elevated

Cmd.exe (Run as Administrator)

sfc.exe /scannow


Solution 5:

Run a checkdisk

And Reboot


Here is another approach and explanation:

Alterations to the Windows system environmental variables have been made, specifically affecting the default setting %SystemRoot%\Temp. The variables in question are TEMP and TMP. The genesis of this issue lies in the system’s lack of authorization to access the novel temporary paths designated under TEMP or TMP.

To rectify this error, it is imperative to recalibrate the Windows system environmental variables for TEMP and TMP, restoring them to their default configuration: %SystemRoot%\Temp.

On the afflicted client,

navigate to the Control Panel and select System.

Subsequently, access Advanced system Settings in the left pane.

Within the Advanced tab, proceed to Environment Variables.

In the section designated as System variables, meticulously edit the TMP and TEMP variables, resetting the Variable Value to the default: %SystemRoot%\Temp.

Confirm the adjustments by clicking OK, subsequently saving the changes.

Conclude this process by closing the System Properties window. Following these corrective measures, it is recommended to reinstall DE.

If you have not solved it until here > well one one test machine VM we ripped out a d: e: DISK

And just run c: for some times we could not solve too, sorry
