Failed to install catalog files

Getting the Failed to install catalog files error? This is how you fix it. The issue is related to registry key security settings.

  1. Click Start
  2. Click Run
  3. Type in: command
  4. Press enter
  5. In the command prompt typesecedit /configure /cfg c:Windowsrepairsecsetup.inf /db secsetup.sdb /verbose /areas regkeys
  6. Press Enter 

If it reports an error about not knowing where secedit is then you can download it from “here”. You need to download it and put it in My Computer/C.
