optionalfeatures.exe dialog is empty.
Hi,

I would like to install IIS on Windows Vista Home Premium. But the
dialog opens but nothing getting loaded. It says "please wait" and it
is empty.

I tried comparing CTP/Knownclasses registry keys between two similar
Windows Vista PCs. Everything is fine. How can i get this done.

Your help is much appreciated.

Thanks in Advance.

Venkat

Hi Venkat,

See if this works.

The "Windows Features" dialog box is empty in Windows Vista, or you receive an error message that includes the following code when you try to use Windows Update: "0x80073712":

Re: optionalfeatures.exe dialog is empty.
I tried it. It passed 100% and no issues. I even tried System restore.
As Vista installs Security Update, patches, SP1 by itself. I am not
sure. Till what date I should back date to restore. I tried restoring
till April 15. Same issue.

I got this laptop as fine tuned laptop from a leading store in US
(VISTA with bettter performance). Is there any service which might be
in stopped / Manual state which affects the feature.

Thank you for immediate reply.

Regards,
Venkat

Anyone have any update on this issue? From my research on the web, it seems
like you have to reinstall Vista...
