[247] can't uninstall; [248] can't install

Greetings everyone,

With each new build of ReSharper 2, I would uninstall the old one and install the new one. This morning, however, uninstalling build 247 won't work. Furthermore, installing build 248 over it won't work. The text of the message is the same each time (except the file name, which seems random):

Internal Error 2203. C:\WINDOWS\Installer\17935.ipi, -2147287036

Googling error 2203, I've learned that it's a permissions problem in Windows Installer, but I'm not making much progress yet from there. I'll continue to investigate, but I would greatly appreciate any help you can provide, since this is preventing me from doing any work: VS.NET 2003 doesn't seem to be in good shape; it seems as if ReSharper is only partially installed now.

Addendum: I tried to uninstall another program, but that failed just like the ReSharper uninstall. Something is definitely wrong with Windows Installer; I just don't know causes yet.

Addendum: I've verified that I have the latest Windows Installer, 3.1 v2. It was released May 12, 2005, and its full version # is: 3.1.4000.2435. I got this with a recent update to Windows, I think.

Many thanks,
Craig

Hello Craig,

I'm not sure what went wrong with your ReSharper installation, but I suggest
that you try
to use Windows Installer Cleanup utility:

Hi Dimitry,

Thanks for that suggestion. Unfortunately, that tool won't install: I get error 2203 just like when trying to uninstall ReSharper 2 #247 and the other apps I've tried to uninstall. This problem seems larger than ReSharper, and I don't think ReSharper was the cause. Nevertheless, if you or anyone else has any other ideas, please send them along.

Regards,
Craig

Navigate to the folder:
C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Installations\{EA3AC339-2518-4E17-97EF-1BDBC6C81F17}

Create a new shortcut pointing to "JetBrains ReSharper for Visual Studio
2003.msi" and add the parameters /l* resharper.log and run the shortcut.
Everything will be logged now and take a look at the logfile to find out
what exactly goes wrong.
