Error 0x80070643 when installing Windows Live Essentials

I ran into the problem with not being able to install programs from the Windows Live Essentials suite like Messenger. The error displayed was:

Error: 0x80070643

After some targeted Googling I stumbled on a thread that detailed some fundamental troubleshooting steps I should have completed. In summary:

  1. Disable third party firewall
  2. Run services.msc as Admin
  3. Start the Windows Firewall
  4. Run installer

List all cron jobs for all users

To loop over each user name listing out their crontab. The crontabs are owned by the respective users so you won’t be able to see another user’s crontab w/o being them or root.

for user in $(cut -f1 -d: /etc/passwd); do crontab -u $user -l; done

To loop over each user and know, which user does a crontab belong to insert – echo $ user

for user in $(cut -f1 -d: /etc/passwd); do echo $user; crontab -u $user -l; done
