Method 5: Correcting Registry Mistake

There are certain cases when there is a registry mistake. In such cases, an error message can form. This issue can be solved by following the steps. This is the last method that you can try to solve your error yourself. This has worked for a lot of users.

Step 1: Press the Windows key + R to open the Run dialog box, then type in Regedit and press enter.

Step 2: Navigate to the following address – Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

Step 3: On the right side, notice the ‘ProgramFilesDIR’. Notice the data. What happens is that their address might be missing the “\” after the drive name and should be something like “C: ProgramFiles (x86)” meanwhile it should be “C:\ProgramFiles (x86)”.

Step 4: When you have changed the value, check to make sure whether your problem is gone or not.
