Windows Installer error 2908 -
Could not register component

That's usually a Permissions error. Have you tried the manual workaround
" Using the interactive method ", that is shown in the Fixit article ? -

At the very least, you'll know if there's a Permissions issue with the
reg key that the Fixit is trying to Export as a backup or when it
attempts to delete the key's Data.
The error may be related to the installed AV/security suite or security
software that is actively monitoring registry settings.
