I'm sorry you're running into this problem. I assume you've tried to restart your system? If so, and the problem persists please try the steps listed in this document:
Please let me know how it goes. If the steps above don't work we'll need to gather AIR logging information which will give us a better look at what exactly is failing.
hi first of all i want to appreciate to answer me
u r very helpfull
i did what u said ,yes the mciexec.exe process is my problem and when i end it i can install or unistall air or any air application
but i can't find the program what causes to run this processor but for now i can do what i want thanks again
I am having a similar problem.
OS = Win SBS 2003
software = Air, Reader X and Symantec Endpoint Protection/Live Update.
All give the error msg xxx could not be installed because another application is already being installed. Complete the first installation before proceeding with this one.
I have restarted the server multiple times, I have tried to uninstall the Adobe products but get the same error msg. I have turned on the logging as suggested elsewhere.
What should I try now?
Did you try the steps listed to kill the msiexec.exe process?
Not yet. Can you point me in the right direction please?
Thanks, it is working now!
