Error 1335 when installing WinZip

It is suggested in a number of locations mentioning this, that the error might be within the MSI install routine itself.

When registration of the engine is corrupted, all attempts to run .msi packages fail.

To correct the registration of the Windows Installer, you could unregister and then register the Installer service using the command line switches shown below. This shuts down and reregisters the service, which assures that the Windows Installer engine should function properly. To do this:

  1. On the keyboard, press Windows key (the Windows key)+R to open Run
  2. Type: msiexec /unregister
  3. Click OK
  4. Repeat steps 1-3, but this time type: msiexec /regserver
