HP Support Assistant was running and downloaded an update for itself, which doesn't install properly. I am left with shortcuts that no longer work - HSPA.exe is missing.
I went direct to HP site, downloaded HSPA latest version, and tried to install.
I get toward the end of the instal...
Then get this error:
Then HSPA unintalls itself...
Then I get a final Windows error:
I have tried a System Restore, but it doesn't work (no restore point early enough).
Can you help me fix this problem?
(Unlike some other posts, I really LIKE HSPA and want to keep using it.)
I am using Win 7 Ultimate x64 on an Envy 1104-tx.

Sorry to hear about your HPSA
Please try this to repair.
GO to Control Panel - Program removal - Remove the HPSA SW completely.
Then reboot and go to this site to download the latest version
Hope this works for you.

Unfortunately, it doesn't fix the problem because now it won't install via Control Panel:
I select the HPSA and ask to uninstall:
I get the message that it's preparing to remove...
Then it "crashes" with the same error as before:
Now what should I do? I would really like to get HPSA working again.

I am sorry to see you are experiencing this problem.
Try downloading the latest version of HPSA from www.hp.com/go/hpsupportassistant.
The installer should remove old versions of HPSA from Windows and install the new version.
Do you happen to be using Zone Alarm or a another security application that could be blocking the install?

HP Support Assistant.msi is missing. (in fact its located in another msi setup)
1-downlaod the latest update from hp web site and start the installation
2-go to c:\windows\installler (installer is a hidden folder)
3-sort by date ,you will notice a new file appearing while installing. for example xxxx.msi
4- before canceling your installation, copy it to desktop
5-now download universal extractor to extract msi files
6-extract it and you will retrieveHP Support Assistant.msi
7-copy all the files to c:\windows\installler and restart the installation from original download setup
8-ignore all errors the first time, then run a second installation
it worked for me on hp support assistant.msi
hint: dont spend time looking on forums, try to solve it yourself

This is what worked for me -- it takes awhile to process:
Then I ran a program to clean the registry (Advanced System Care).
Then I rebooted.
Then I ran the HP Support Assistant .exe (latest version of this posting: sp54620.exe)... that failed to finish.
I then went to: C:\SWSetup\SP54620
Finally it installed. What a pain ...
Now it is still stuck with loading the product information. But at least it's installed I suppose.
Product needs to be rewritten or bug fixed.
