This error means that when you try to install a new component from Windows Essentials (versions such as 2009), but the Essentials package with other programs is already installed on the system. This can be solved by simply completely uninstalling the Windows Essentials package or by patching using Escargot Patcher (the program that comes in the archive, Name: RUN_AFTER_INSTALL.exe) or Escargot Switcher (archive with files for patching). :wink:

(Unfortunately this is the case)
