Recommended Posts


Hello, I have a little problem with latest kernel release. Everytime I want to install any MSI-depending app (no matter if it's supported natively or with extended kernel), Windows Installer keeps crashing. I din't have this problem on previous releases of kernel.

Unfortunately when I try to install this update installer says that Windows modules installer must be updated (my system is fully patched to 2017, and have installed the 3 SHA-2 updates (KB4039648-v2, KB4493730 and KB4474419), do I need to install any additional patches to install that 2021 update/fix Windows Installer?

 

Update: My friend reported the same issue (same system setup as mine). @win32 I think you can take a look at it.

This KB5008274 is very recent (december 2021). I don't know if the Extended Kernel is compatible with it

The "Prerequisite" section of the Microsoft article says that this update also needs KB4538484 or KB4575904.

The problem is not vanilla Windows related so no Windows update can help.

This means that the issue is not vanilla Vista related so no Windows update can help.

I don't use kaspersky or msi afterburner, but I'm sure Windows Installer errors don't occur for me. The only possible reason that comes to my mind is because I don't have 32 bit extended kernel installed.

How exactly do you guys get the OS Spoofing working on Vista? I tried that file with a global config and it didn't work.

Mine works but it's unstable, sometimes some programs crash...

MSI (Windows Installer) 5.0 is officially available for Windows 7 or higher only.

Please screenshot and post the error to me.

I said that the problem does not occur for me. It is @Ark_mage2180 ( and later @winvispixp) who reported the issue :yes:.

Hi, @win32 I replaced the old kernel32.dll with my new kernel32.dll, and I applied all the advice you told me with this, the BsoD appeared in the startup of the system. I did not know the reason for this Do you have an idea?
