comment Windows 7 can't install anything including windows updates
I'm unable to add/remove programs because of the same issue (another installation is running)... HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\InProgres‌​s key exists. I tried deleting this key and rebooting but it returns each time. I looked in the .ipi file and found references to VS 9.0\Common 7\IDE which was installed with SQL 2008 I have a feeling that this has to do with the installation of SQL 2008, which I installed two instances of back-to-back. I am going to re-install windows7 and only one instance of SQL 2008 and immediately apply SP1.

Thanks for the response, but I have rebooted to no avail. I can't seem to install anything really, now that this problem has cropped up.

A manager this out of touch, insisting on legacy web browsers... I would just quit.
