    I had to reinstall windows 7 from my original DVD which was purchased at Microsoft. After installation, I could not install anything. I have tried on and off for several days. I have visited Microsoft download pages not finding any solution. Your solution helped right away to solve the problem with windows installer. Thank you very much.
    However, I am very disappointed about Microsoft Corporation not coming with such a solution first and advertising it so everybody can see it. I am sure there is a way if there is a will. They definitely push their solutions where they want to. Or, are they getting suddenly Micro and Soft??

      Hi Vladimir! I'm very happy that my guideline helped you to fix the problem. If I understood correctly, you are talking about the Cannot find or load Microsoft Installer error. Anyway, I have no idea why Microsoft didn’t published an official solution firstly, but I believe that first of all they are focused on issues that affects most users, or at least users which keep up minimal requirements. In this case Skype requires Internet Explorer 11, but some users don’t know about this or just ignore it. In my opinion, the biggest problem is that error message mislead users. It would be much better if Skype had warned users that "Internet Explorer is outdated. Please install Internet Explorer 11. You can download it from this %URL%".

        Thank you for your answer. However, it was not just Skype that I was not able to install. XAMPP for PHP would not install either. I did not keep track of few other programs that I was not able to install. Basically, my computer was stuck. Thank you again for sharing your knowledge. However, I still think that Microsoft Corporation should do MUCH MORE for their loyal windows users.

    Thanks for this informative and helpful site. Unfortunately, when I tried to update IE 11 per your link above, I received: "Operating system is not supported You need windows 7sp1 or server 2008 R2 sp1 to install IE 11" I think Windows 7 "Ultimate"(?) is installed. Suggestions?

    Thanks for the great solution.
    But while installing the IE11 it asks to manually download some updates from the Microsoft website.
    Is it normal? And since you said the application downloads everything on its own why is it not working for my case?

      Hi Alex! You’re welcome!

      I said that Internet Explorer install all required updates for Skype, but not for IE. In its turn, Internet Explorer also have some requirements and seems your system don’t meet them. So don’t worry and install all required updates manually or enable Automatic Updates in Windows.
