Windows Installer on one of my network computers gives the following error:
"Windows Installer Service could not be accessed.... "I've tried everything Microsoft and other sites has suggested and not even Windows updates will install on the computer. Anyone has any ideas as to how I can fix this without reformating the hard drive? I'm running Windows XP on all the network computers.
The exact error is:
"Windows Installer Service could not be accessed.This can occur when you are running Windows in safe mode, or if Windows Installer is not correctly installed contact your support personnel for assistance."
