    Cannot find or load Microsoft Installer while installing Skype
    Not being very knowledgeable about computer-stuff at all, have been trying to install the latest Skype for DAYS on end. Got the same message every time. Might have mixed up other stuff while trying to'update my computer' as I was asked to do. Let's hope not. Very important to me to be able to Skype. And then I found you! And now the sun shines in South Africa. Thanks! You are my hero.

    Hey! It should be a bug with your Skype database. Close Skype and remove the following folder:
    %appdata%\Skype\skype_username\media_messaging\emo_cache_v2

    Skype 7.30.0.105 for Windows Desktop
    Hi Billy! Seems you installed previous version of Skype using MSI installer. This is why first of all you should uninstall it from Skype Start → Control Panel → Programs and Features, then you can install the new version of Skype using EXE installer.

  27. Thanks a lot for the info. I new from the moment microsoft bought skype that they will try some monkey business trying to tie people to their dying windows and already dead internet explorer. What a shame. They should be sued for anti-trust reasons again.

    Hey! I can't understand, why as a windows user you are frustrated about updating Internet Explorer, which like other system components is already installed on your system. Moreover, Skype always used Internet Explorer, even before it was bought by Microsoft. And more than that, I offered you a solution to solve the problem without updating Internet Explorer.

    Cannot find or load Microsoft Installer while installing Skype
    Hi! You’re welcome!

    I’m not sure how Skype EXE installer works, but as far I know, EXE it’s just a skeleton over MSI installer and during Skype installation both installers (EXE and MSI) call Microsoft Installer service. Probably EXE installer can’t use this service directly but call it through some API functions that unlike MSI installer are doing additional checks and found that something is wrong.

    ps. About dev purposes — you can install IE11 and using Developers Tools (F12) you can emulate any IE version.

    Cannot find or load Microsoft Installer while installing Skype
    Hey there thanks a lot for this, it was bugging me for days!!
    Can you tell me why the MSI installer is working instead of the normal .exe file? What is the difference? Is it installing something else in the background to make it work?
    The .msi file install is by far the simplest solution, I'm working on a win 7 ultimate with sp1, MS network 4.5, and IE 8 (I keep it for dev purposes).
    Thank you again!!
  51. thanks you so much!!!!!

    At least they can explain at the error screen, that Microsoft Explorer needs to be updated. It would save lot of time to many people. I'm still waiting to see, when the code writters stop thinking like robots. This problem occurs, only when you try to install the full offline standalone version. Go figure this out.

    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.

    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%".

    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??
