Strange title, yes. But anyways, like we all know, Windows mess up your computer abouut once a month with something fun (BSoD, desktop disappear etc.), and my problem is that I can’t run Windows Installer, I’ve tried to re-install it. The service is set to manual, and I’ve tried to start it manually and then run the installer, but it failed. I have disabled most of the services, but it says that Windows Installer doesn’t require other services, or does it?
Anyone that know how to fix it? It’s really annoying since many softwares use the Windows Installer.
I know. RPC is needed for most of the services, and if you somehow mess it up, Windows will automatically shutdown.
You can’t disable it thru services.msc. RPC is a needed system component, so I have it running
Rag, not sure what your problem is… but, Dial-a-fix can fix MSI when its broken. Not sure if it will help or not, but maybe it’s worth a try. Also what are you getting in the Windows Event Logs?.. MSI errors usually report something in there. In addition MSI can be broken by an existing half-installed/uninstalled application/component which persistently returns every time MSI is run.
