This usually indicates the VBScript is corrupt, unregistered or potentially
fouled up by malware. To resolve this, from a command-prompt, consider
going to the C:\Windows\system32 directory and running
To re-register VBScript - which is required due to custom install actions in

I am running Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit and I have downloaded MBSA v2.1.1
"The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package.
This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2738."
I have downloaded the program several times to ensure that the package is
not corrupt, and it downloads successfully each time. The file appears to me
to be okay.
If this is not the correct file to install for my environment, is there a
link to the proper download?
Is there anything else I need to do to install this (i.e., settings or
configuration)? I am running with an account that has admin permissions.
