Problem description When running a Microsoft Fix it solution you may encounter an error code 2738. This error occurs because the Windows Script Engine is not properly registered.
Error message details The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2738.
Fix it for me To fix this problem automatically, click the Fix this problem link. Then, click Run in the File Download dialog box, and following the steps in the wizard.
This is ridiculous. Internet Explorer 8 was somehow disabled. Tried to reinstall it...fail. Tried to use FixIt... fail. tried to use a FixIt to fix FixIt... FAIL! I HAVE to have I.E. to run a diagnostic program but can't install it. What do i do NOW Microsoft?
While running Microsoft fix it I have encountered Error code : 0x80040154
Nothing happened. I still have the problem.
no puedo desunstalar skype error 2738 para volver a instalarlo y que funcione
GOOD! Much beter than Windows help. Cngratulations
Did not work. Still got error after "fix it"
Thank you, this area was/is helpful!
This didn't work. Fix that didn't work for another fix that didn't work either. Any fix that works here?
ran the fix it, restarted, tried to itnsall skype, got the same error. I have windows 7 starter and I do not to upgrade windows. Tried manually to run the dll files from the cmd. but the 2738 error persist. also the the error shows when I tried to install Home Concert Extreme.
This does not fix the error code 2738 problem. I am very dissapointed
I'm getting this 2738 error code upon failure to install the Fixit 50897 workaround patch for the new zero-day exploit for 1 of 6 computers -- all 5 others processed the MSI patch successfully, but this machine won't. The machine with the problem is running Vista32 SP2 Ultimate, fully patched and up-to-date; the others where the patch was successful are running XP Pro SP3, Vista SP2 Home Premium, or Win7x64 Pro. The 50181 fixit patch from this webpage doesn't produce a different outcome, although it will run through to completion. I do not find any of the registry entries for vbscript.dll and jscript.dll misplaced into the HKCU section as has been identified as one potential reason for a return of that specific error code. So, still hunting for a viable solution...
lol a Fix It for a Fix It! Whatever works... =D
I can not install EMET
Error Code 2738
Why can't I down load this without additional software I have RC Registry and PC Matic software why do I have to purchase another software program?
microsoft must employ nothing but drunk monkeys for programming. why else would something work this morning and fail just hours later and continues to not function even after restoring my computer to day 1 of installation!
Im trying to install USB AT&T connect program on my laptop. Therefor, I can't log on to the Internet so I cant download the fix utility what should I do
