Windows Imaging Component (WIC) Install Failed or Cancelled

Posted on

If you get a install failure error “WIC Setup canceled” when trying to install WIC (Windows Imaging Components) on Windows 2003 x64 and possibly 2008.

Boot into safe mode and rename the following list of files. If you are running 32 bit version, you don’t have to worry about the files in the SysWOW64 folder

 

C:\WINDOWS\system32\WindowsCodecs.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\WindowsCodecsExt.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\WMPhoto.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\PhotoMetadataHandler.dll
C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\WindowsCodecs.dll
C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\WindowsCodecsExt.dll
C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\WMPhoto.dll
C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\PhotoMetadataHandler.dll
