    Windows XP - The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed
    This document provides a solution to a problem where the Windows Installer Service could not be accessed.

    SYMPTOM
    When attempting to install software on Windows XP the end-user receives a message that "The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. 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."
    SOLUTION
    To resolve this perform the following:

    1. Click on Start
    2. Select Run.
    3. In the "Open:" field, type: command.
    4. Click OK.

    An MS-DOS Prompt window will come up on the screen with a blinking cursor at the command line. In this window you will need to do the following:

    1. Type msiexec /unregister and press Enter.
    2. Type msiexec /regserver and press Enter.
