Quick and Easy PC Repair
You may encounter an error code indicating that the installation ended prematurely due to the Borderlands DLC error. Coincidentally, there are several ways to solve this problem, and we will do it shortly.
Be A Good Consumer
About a week ago I uploaded the DLC for Borderlands, Zombie Island of Dr. Ned purchased for my new retail version of Borderlands for PC. After the purchase, I was told that I also needed to install the latest 1.1 update, so that was also purchased.
We Have A Problem
My first attempt to update Borderlands resulted in an overarching error dialog where people reported that the update failed. After looking at the Gearbox panels, I was advised to run the update from the command with the quick msiexec utility. http://gbxforums.gearboxsoftware.com/showthread.php?t=872331. (FIXED) Fatal Error: Installation aborted prematurely due to an error. This usually results in the patch running the same information gathering routine on your computer as the specific original patch attempt and silently exiting without doing anything. A quick check in the “msiexec” program’s help dialog showed that the logging flag was set, and the corresponding output and dxdiag output were posted on the Gearbox forums. http://gbxforums.gearboxsoftware.com/showthread.php?p=1721935 – Unable to install Zombie Patch or DLC – Windows 7 – Error
Not You 1603. What About You?
This is usually where things get interesting. Shortly after, I read a new consumer post that had a similar problem to my website and posted a suggestion to run the msiexec program with the visited flag set. Another member replied to me that a lot would be useless because “we already know where the patch is, try to make sure you post”. try to answer. A quick search on the drive where I installed Borderlands (E:) turned up nothing. A search in program file directories 32 and 64 on drive C found both. Well, some other questions were pretty simple: does your patch and DLC require the game to be installed in the entire program directory on the C drive? The question in the FIX thread was not answered after a few days, so I decided to try reinstalling Borderlands in the C:Program Files(x86) folder.
You Did It
And guess what, the next patch and DLC installed without issue.
It is simply unacceptable for this developer’s game to have a new patch installed where the mouth wasupdated the program when all the other programs I patched never needed it.
