The Windows SDK can be downloaded from the Microsoft website. If you don't want to install the complete SDK just for these tools, you can use the Web Setup option. This way you will download only a small executable ("Setup.exe") which allows you to select which features you want to install. For example, the tools contained in the Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4 are available to download at: Windows SDK web setup. From "Windows Native Code Development" menu select "Tools" feature.
If none of the previous three troubleshooting steps have resolved your issue, you can try a more aggressive approach (Note: Not recommended for amateur PC users) by downloading and replacing your appropriate MsiZap.Exe file version. We maintain a comprehensive database of 100% malware-free MsiZap.Exe files for every applicable version of Panda Free Antivirus. Please follow the steps below to download and properly replace you file:
CAUTION : We strongly advise against downloading and copying MsiZap.Exe to your appropriate Windows system directory. Panda Security typically does not release Panda Free Antivirus EXE files for download because they are bundled together inside of a software installer. The installer's task is to ensure that all correct verifications have been made before installing and placing MsiZap.Exe and all other EXE files for Panda Free Antivirus. An incorrectly installed EXE file may create system instability and could cause your program or operating system to stop functioning altogether. Proceed with caution.
Running msizap.exe with the G parameter removes orphaned cached Windows Installer data files for all users. Running this command on an old Windows XP machine allowed me to reduce the size of the C:\Windows\Installer directory from 3.6GB down to 875MB.
To help you analyze the msizap.exe process on your computer, you may find the following programs useful: Security Task Manager displays all Windows tasks running, including built-in hidden processes such as keyboard and browser monitoring or auto-start entries. A single security risk rating indicates the probability that it is spyware, malware or a potential Trojan horse. This anti-virus detects and removes spyware, adware, Trojans, keyloggers, malware and trackers from your hard disk.
It is not recommended to download replacement exe files from any download sites, as these may themselves contain viruses etc. If you need to download or reinstall msizap.exe, then we recommend that you reinstall the main application associated with it Windows Installer Clean Up.Operating system informationmsizap.exe errors can occur in any of the following Microsoft Windows operating systems:Windows 10Windows 8.1Windows 7Windows VistaWindows XPWindows MEWindows 2000RECOMMENDED: Click here to troubleshoot Windows errors and optimize system performance
I have downloaded the latest version and when I try to install it says there is a version already there 'would I like to reinstall'. The Windows Installer pops up and say this only available for products that are not already installed.
Try this: download this removal tool, JavaRa: ; Unzip, and dclick JavaRa.exe. In the box that pops press Remove Older Versions.You might also then try to update Java using the Update button; select the first option, to use jucheck.exe [that will work if Java is actually installed].
Mmm... okay, it is a windows Installer problem... let's clean that up. Download this pgm, Msizap.exe, and copy it to your C: root. Do not dclick msizap.exe!!! Instead, open a cmd window and drag in Msizap.exe, then on that cmd line add..g -so that the full cmd is "msizap.exe g"Run that.And try to update again.---To get Msizap.exe, download this: Extract, and then copy only Msizap.exe to your c: root. You don't need the other files in that package; it is safe to delete them..
It is also available from here: _Installer_CleanUp_Utility_d4459.html-in this case you are downloading msicuu2.exe -dclick this to install the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility, then from its program folder copy msizap.exe to C:-you can then uninstall the cleanup utility that was just installed; you only need msizap.exe. And run as above in a cmd window...msizap.exe g
Oh, crikey! So sorry, I typed in the wrong file name!! Here is the offending post reworded. [I'll get a mod to edit the original for me.]It is also available from here: _Instal...ity_d4459.html-in this case you are downloading msicuu2.exe -dclick this to install the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility, then from its program folder copy msizap.exe to C:-you can then uninstall the cleanup utility that was just installed; you only need msizap.exe.

Hi. If you opened the cmd window and there ran...msizap.exe gthe window would have hung around for you to read and then close. Running that command from the Run box will do the same job, but as you found, the cmd winndow does not remain. No matter, it would have listed what it had done.So, try to install Java RE now.
When Java Update is run it does a version check, then compares that with the website. I have monitored what happens on my computer, and cannot see it check that information from the registry entries, and so i assume that the updater takes its version info from one of Java's files. I cannot tell which one; several have version information in them.Why not test your Java by visiting their website _manual_download.xml -the test applet is at the foot of that page. And if it does not pass, then you can use those instructions to brute-force install Java correctly.
Well, that is interesting, because my Java is up-to-date and working correctly; if I run the topmost, online installer on that page it downloads the file and then comments "The software has already been installed on your computer. Would you like to reinstall it?"Simple as that. It reinstalls it.
Download this pgm, Msizap.exe, and copy it to your C: root. Do not dclick msizap.exe!!! Instead, open a cmd window and drag in Msizap.exe, then on that cmd line add..g -so that the full cmd is "msizap.exe g"Run that.
I see, aaafan. Then perhaps you could strong-arm it; delete the pgm files folder Java and its contents, plus the system32 file javacpl.cpl. There are other files in system32, but that one is the one Java reads to open. There are reg keys too, but they would be rewritten when you do a fresh installation, and as I said before, I cannot see Java taking its version info from reg reads. Anyway... it is strange... most pgms are written so as to not mind being installed over the top of themselves; sometimes there are glitches and doing that swiftly repairs them. But try ther offline download.. a manual installer download. 2b1af7f3a8
