Win 7 Installer Headaches,

Some software, such as the following for example; VirtualBox-5.2.34-133893-Win, and Macrium Reflect v7.2.4557, are unable to find their own extracted files during installation. This occurs with or without antivirus running, and I have tried numerous solutions, command line Win system checks, disabling/re-enabling windoze installer, and all of the MS so called cures short of wiping the machine and starting over. This also seems to be related to the MSI installer as every app that has this issue asks for the location of an xxx.msi file, which even after manually finding same and pointing the installation to it via browsing there within the error dialog it still claims it is not there!

Has anyone else encountered this issue, and has anyone found a viable solution?

^^ The only time I have encountered your problems is when Windows wasn't installed on "C" drive and it still was just a matter of pointing the installer to the file location. Sounds like a registry bug. Well anyway who knows what else might be going on. Bite the bullet now it may get a whole lot worse as time progresses. I can't think of any other permanent fix. You could try system restore to a time before the installer problem. Personally I don't trust system restore I always go for the full Monty.
