Try starting the service and see if that fixes the problem

Click Start
Right-click Computer, and then click Manage.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
In the console tree, click Services and Applications, and then click Services.
In the details pane, right-click Windows Installer, and then click Start.

Error2: The system cannot find the file specified.

Seems the Win 7 installer 5.0 is not available for down load yet, everything I've seen so far looks like a repair install of windows is need to repair it.

Hopefully that resolved your issue mslocke15 - I'm re-opening the thread in case others run into the same issue.
