While cleaning out my boot disk recently, the .msi extension made me think that it was just unused installation files, so I deleted this file from the disk permanently.
Is there any way to get it back, or re-instate this file from sources?
Lightroom 4.2 starts, advises me of the 4.3 update available, but after downloading and starting the update installation, it ends with the error that "Adobe_Lightroom_x86.msi" could not be found.
I have tried looking for this file in the installation sources, but no luck so far.
Everything else works fine, but I will be stuck without updates unless I start from scratch... not a nice prospect, since I have almost 80k pictures and edits in my library.
Can someone please help?
Thanks Pat, but I deleted it while pressing shift... I did try Recuva, though, on the off chance that it could find it - no luck.
Is there no way to simply "extract" this file from the original installation source?
You could try recovering the file from another computer. You might also try running the Microsoft FixIt utility - http://support.microsoft.com/mats/program_install_and_uninstall to try to remove the software.
