Recently and just out of the blue, my Excel program stopped working. When I click on any Excel file, immediately flashes a "Preparing to Install" message then quickly that is followed by an error message with the file location, name and "The Windows Installer Service could not be acessed. This can occur if you are running Windows in a safe mode, or if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance."
All other Microsoft Office apps work fine. Like I stated this just started out of nowhere. I use Excel a lot.
I have Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 2. Pentium 4.
Sorry if too wordy.
