Hi,

   I had someone else report the same thing (Error 1722) [here], and I issued a fix since then, so I think it's now simply that your computer needs to be rebooted 1st before attempting installation.

   Can you try that (ie do a restart), and let me know if that fixes the problem?

   Thanks!

Michel,
 
Thank you for the response.  I did reboot (as stated in the error message)m but to of no avail.  I did about 5 attempts to remove the downloaded exe file and then attempted to do it all over again, but continued to get the same message.
 
Very wierd, since i have installed this successfully on four other laptops, and have even helped friends with this.
 
the only difference this time around that i can think of is that my OS is Win 7.
 
Best,
 
Vincent

Mich,
 
I resolved this problem!   The spooler was not enabled to automatic - it was set to manual in the new Lenovo I had purchased. 
 
Reset the services to automatic, and things are working fine.

Hi Vince,

   Thanks for posting back the answer to the mystery!

   It's odd that the print spooler service would be turned off (manual) as it is necessary for all printing ancillary functions. I wonder why Lenovo would have done this.

   Cheers!

Hi Immanuel,
 
Here you go!  This should help you !

You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps.

  1. Click to open Administrative Tools.  This is in your Control Panel.

  2. Double-click Services If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  3. Right-click the Print Spooler service, and then click Properties.

  4. On the General tab, next to Startup type, make sure that Automatic is selected.

  5. If the service is not already running, under Service status, click Start, and then click OK If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

This should help resolve your problem!

Best,

Thanks Vince for your post with the instructions. I was in Northern Canada this last week with a very bad Internet connection. Disapprove
