How To Fix error 1720


TIP: You should click here to fix Windows errors and optimize system speed.


A mistake or inaccuracy, an error is caused about by committing miscalculations on the things that you do. It is a state of having a wrong judgement or conception in your conduct that allows catastrophic things to happen. In machines, error is a way to measure the difference between the observed value or the computed value of an event against its real value.

It is a deviation from correctness and accuracy. When errors occur, machines crash, computers freeze and softwares stop working. Errors are mostly unintentional events to happen. Most of the time, errors are a result of poor management and preparation.

What causes error 1720

If you received this error on your PC, it means that there is a malfunction in your system. Common causes are incorrect or unsuccessful installation or removal of software that could leave invalid entries in the Windows registry, the effects of a virus or malware attack, an incorrect system shutdown due to a power failure, or another factor in which a person with little technical knowledge accidentally deletes the required A system file or registry entry, as well as several other reasons. The immediate cause of "error 1720" is a failure when one of its normal operations is properly started by a system or application component.

Error 1720 - Windows Installer PLEASE HELP!

I'm starting to worry that the solution is going to be reinstalling windows, and I really don't want to go through that! I am trying to install our shipping software and I keep getting error message 1720:



I've googled it a couple of times, and I have tried out a ton of different solutions but I just can't seem to get it fixed. We are currently running Windows XP SP2 Media Center Edition.

PLEASE help me, this is driving me crazy and we can't get this computer up and running until we can install the programs we need.


MSI Installer Error Code 1720

The answer here looks promising too. I have done other things but my brain is becoming frazzled and I don't remember them all. The Windows Installer CleanUp utility deletes all files and registry settings associated with a program's Windows Installer configuration.Click to expand... Steps I have taken:
1.

A script required for this install to complete could not be run. Custom action... Attached is the verbose log from the install attempt.
 




Try the windows installer cleanup utility. Unregister and register msiexec.
2.

Run as administrator
5. I can't update the firmware in my USB modem without this software. Trying to install VZAccess Manager (Verizon tool).

Tried to reload Installer 4.5.
3. Here is the download for it http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/MSI-cleanup-utility-3889c8db

This should remove all those failed installs and you can try to install it one last time. I hope you guys or gal can help. Checked Services, installer is started.

It does not list a column number or line number. Ran SFC /scannow and chkdsk, no problem there
6. http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...-windows/67dc78d1-0937-4eac-a1d6-9e738551fc3c
 

Note: this has been removed from MS because it did something to Office installs.

I have tried support personnel and vendor to no avail.

Win 7 Installer error code 1720

The message is of the type that usually points to an issue with a particular install package. Upload that here as an attached file.
 



Have searched as much as I know how, even bought programs that garunteed the error code could be fixed to no avail.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/223300

After enabling logging, locate the installer log created after an install failure by running %temp%. You need to tell us more about when this fault occurs -- is it with all installs, or only just one. Search for and open the most recent "msi" log. (see screenshot). Perhaps it is the wrong version

You may also wish to enable installer logging.


Error Message 1720 Smart drive ...

To ensure no data loss, backup contents and replace this hard disk."

I have tried this several times with the same result.

I lost the hard drive on one of my Compaq d530 computers, and have obtained a replacement drive. Is there something else required to be able to install Windows from my installation CD?
 



I'm actually typing this from the exact same type of PC. If I hit F1 to select the disk as the boot location the screen has a curser in the upper left hand corner of the screen and nothing else happens.

When I installed the replacement drive and turned on the computer I got the following message:

"1720 - SMART Hard Drive detects imminent failure
Your hard disk drive is detecting an imminent failure. Is the replacement drive faulty by any chance, or is it a new drive? Did the "original" drive fail...why did you have to replace the drive?

I am operating with Windows XP Professional and used the Windows disk management to format the new drive. Have you checked the IDE cable as well as the connection to/from the motherboard?

error 1720 there is a problem with this windows installer package..........

I am trying to download software.  It stalls about 60 percent through and I get a pop up box with this message:
 
 
Error 1720.

error 1720 there is a problem with this windows installer package. I have run Avast and Malware bytes and they both come up clean.  I went to Microsoft.com and ran a diagnostic fix it tool to fix my registry.  The program said that I did not have any problems with my registry and it did not fix anything.  I tried to do system restore and roll my system back to an earlier date so see if that might help.  I am unable to do do system restore.  When I reboot my computer a pop box appears that says system restore failed  would you like to try again.  Now my internet options are all messed up and I am unable to run any work applications.
 
I think I can fix the internet options but I still have the Error 1720 code that I do not know about. 





There is a problem with this Windows Installer package.  A script required for this install to complete could not be run.  Contact your support personnel or package vendor.
 
 
 I am running windows 8.1 with IE 11.  My work wants me to run IE 8 or 9 because they are slow getting updated.  I have changed my internet all around and have had success running other programs for my work.  I have been told that I am getting this error message because I have a virus.


HDD error "1720-SMART Hard Drive detects imminent failure Attribute failed: #83"

The problem started with partition F with following issues;

? I also deleted the Partition F: and then recreated the partition but same problems persisted.

1 YEAR BACK
** Due to above issues I left the partition F as it was and used others like C,D & E but an year before the partition E started to do things same way F was doing and at that point F was not accessible with error popping (The disk is not formatted. Surface tests for C,D,E was fine but when it started scanning the HDD somewhere in F partition area, these tools messed up with something (took so long) (stuck at sectors for long time without repairing it).

6 MONTHS BACK
I came to know that there are some serious issues in the HDD sectors inside the last 1GB part of the hard disk. TWO YEARS BACK
I think there are some bad sectors involved at the last part of the HDD space.

But I feel that HDD is very slow overall and and every time I turn this system on I get "720-SMART Hard Drive detects imminent failure Attribute failed: #83". Don't use F too much to be at safe side. Sometimes system restarted when I was copying some random data in the F partition.

Ok, here's the history of the problem.

System got stuck up when some file(s), folder(s) from F drive were opened and then automatic restart
? Wondering if it could be fixed or not and I know and understand that my hard disk was failing ever since and most of you guys will advice to back up and purchase a new one, but I am still on to fix this one and, as if there's any way to get it right up? I also deleted the Partition F: and then recreated the partition but same problems persisted.

1 YEAR BACK
** Due to above issues I left the partition F as it was and used others like C,D & E but an year before the partition E started to do things same way F was doing and at that point F was not accessible with error popping (The disk is not formatted. I made 5 partitions C,D,E,F,G .

Do you want to format it now?)

Dell 1720

I have installed latest drivers (8400M GS) and updated Windows. Happens at random moments but lasts no longer than a couple of seconds.

Current issue:

For a brief second or two, the screen blinks i guess (best way to describe it). Could this possible be a hardware issue or software?
 



Help still needed.
 

What can I do now? Turned off a couple of features such as screen saver and such. First time I experienced this issue with a laptop before and I am not to familiar with the inside of a laptop.

Cisco 1720 Question

I have gotten conflicting answers...some say with a particular IOS, others have said the processor is not suited for trunking. When I do Sh Enc at the config mode prompt the encapsulation command is there...does anyone know if the 1720s are capable of trunking? Whenever I try to enable subinterfaces on the fixed FastEthernet port of the 1720 to enable an 802.1q trunk link, I get an % Unrecognized Command. I have to setup a network for a small business and was intending on using VLANs.
