Greetings,

For the past year or so I have had various issues with my Windows Installer - it just does not plain out work. I have not been able to download any new software on my computer that uses Windows Installer to operate, so it is quite a pain in the rear.

I am using Windows 7 - 64-bit - Service Pack 1.

I've tried to fix this issue before and have went in to rename files and such with no prevail. I am basically in need of a full Windows Installer package that will overwrite old things and make them work.

I know Microsoft has redistributes for these for older OS versions, but not for Windows 7. I need some help with possible fixes. I have already went into the services and changed it to "automatic" instead of manual, if I try to start it I get the error message of:

"Windows could not start the Window Installer service on Local Computer.
Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified."

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Re: WIN7 - Windows Installer Broken

Thank you so much for your help. After nearly 6 months searching for a cure and going in and most likely screwing things up - this is quite the surprise of being this easy!

Appreciate your assistance. Thank you again.
