    Also keep in mind using registry cleaners without actually knowing what you're doing can cause more harm than good. Have you tried System Restore and all that?

    Default Thanks for the support

    I acquired the said registry cleaner and "Cleaned my Registry" (3 times), but it didn't fix my problem.
    Thanks again.

    A Registry Cleaner is only good for cleaning residual registry junk imo; and not for fixing registry problems or improving Windows performance.

    Can you please check if your Windows Installer Service is set on Manual? Now try again.

    If you are still getting this error, I suggest you start this service manually from the Services panel, and try again!

    Next you may try to re-register msiexec

    Open an elevated command prompt and type "msiexec.exe /unregister" and hit Enter.

    Next type "msiexec.exe /regserver" and hit Enter.

    Hope that helps...

    Edit:

    1. Just found this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324516

    2. If it still doesnt work, Windows Installer 4.5 is available as a re-distributable. You can install it and reboot the machine. It should work.

    Thank you HappyAndyK
    I have tried all what you recommended except re-installation
    with non positive results. When I try to re-install I receive a notification that the update is not valid.
    I am still in need for help. Thanks again. ArturoB

    This link has almost all the solutions - "The Windows Installer service could not be accessed" error message when you try to install Office

    Re-install is the only solution which I can think of, since it says update is invalid.

    Maybe you should download it from the re-distributable.

    Download details: Windows Installer 4.5

    Pls choose the appropriate version and install. AMD/Intel/32/64.
