Windows Installer Service


sharkie99

Question

I tried to reinstall the program and or install the sound editor part of it.

This is the message i am getting:

 

THE WINDOWS INSTALLER SERVICE COULD NOT BE ACCESSED. THIS CAN OCCUR IF YOU ARE RUNNING WINDOWS SAFE MODE, OR IF THE WINDOWS INSTALLER IS NOT CORRECTLY INSTALLED.

 

Any idea of what I can do, this is doing it with other programs too.

 

Thanks, hope someone can help me!

Try going to Microsofts website.Go to the knowledge base.Enter in "Windows Installer Service could not be accessed".There are several articles there with recommended fixes.See if any help.This seems to indicate a problem with your windows installation.

I agree, there are a couple of articles that are very good. Articles 315353 and 315346.

But before following everything that is there (which, again is extremely good and complete), try the following:

 

Go to Start --> Run and type:

 

msiexec.exe / unregister and than press ENTER

 

than type:

 

 

msiexec.exe / regserver and than press ENTER

 

This (re-registering msiexec) is often all that is needed
