This patch package could not be opened I'm running off a backup using Seagate Backup. It's supposed to make a prefect ghost of the hard drive. It works fine except that there is always a few little bugs. The system restore doesn't work and I always have to run sr.inf to get it working. After that it's just fine. This time another bug cropped up. All of my MS Office 2003 icons (Excel, Word, PowerPoint) are the blank generic ones and I can't go to properties, and change the icon because both the find target and change icon box is grayed out. There are other grayed out programs as well, Adobe Acrobat and PerfectDisk etc. Most others are just fine. I've rebuilt the icon cache but that didn't work. The programs run fine though, the icons are just blank. Still another thing that may be linked to it is that when I try to remove MS Office 2003, I can't because I get this. I get the same thing trying to uninstall PefectDisk, and Acrobat...... or any of the blank icon programs. "This patch package could not be opened. Verify that the patch package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer patch package." I've run the the WIndows Uninstaller Cleanup Tool (Msicuu2.exe) but that didn't work either. I'm running WinXP with SP3. I'm at my wits end trying to fix this bug. Any ideas?
