window installer
« on: March 23, 2012, 12:33:34 pm »
I ran the program and I am still getting--  The window installer service could not be accessed. This can occur if the windows installer is not
 correctly installed.  Can you help with this???   Thanks

Which program? I have many :-)

Also have you done a sfc /scannow on your system yet?

And what version of Windows do you have?

Did the sfc scan return anything?

That might be part of the problem, or reg keys have gotten screwed up.

Anything else not working correctly?

Then doing a repair install would be the best next step :wink:
