The windows installer service could not be accessed if you are running windows in “safe mode” or if the “windows installer” is not correctly installed.


The following steps can be followed to overcome the above problem:

Step1:  Log on to your computer as an administrator.

Step2: Click on run in the start menu.

Step3: Type cmd and then click ok.

Step4: At the command prompt type msiexec.exe/unregister and then press enter.

Step5: Then type msiexec/regserver and click on enter


Step1: Right click on my computer.

Step2: Click on manage.

Step3: Open services and applications.

Step4: Click on services.

Step5: Select windows services on the right pane.

Step6: Right click on it and then click on start

There must be other files missing or services not enabled to your operating system that is hard to find. For more information pay this this link : Windows Installer Service problem with msi files

If you are receiving that error then definitely the error is coming from the Windows Installer not working properly. This happens due to many different reasons. One possible cause is an improper shutdown that corrupted some system files of the operating system. Another possible reason is when the machine suddenly restarts while installing a program.

Normally, when there is a problem with a program you simply uninstall it and then installing it back fixes the problem. Unfortunately, in the case of the Windows Installer, it is not possible. This is because the Windows Installer is integrated within the operating system. It is part of the entire Microsoft Windows operating system. But even if this is the case, fixing it is still possible.

The usual remedy to this kind of problem is to simply update Windows Installer because Microsoft provides an update to this component. To update your Windows Installer to the latest version, visit Windows Installer 4.5 Redistributable or Windows Installer 4.5 Redistributable Direct. When you click the Download button, you will be presented with a list of files available for download.

Since you are using Microsoft Windows Server 2003, check if you are using either 32-bit or 64-bit. If you are using 32-bit Microsoft Windows Server 2003, check “WindowsServer2003-KB942288-v4-x86.exe”. If you are using 64-bit Microsoft Windows Server 2003, check “WindowsServer2003-KB942288-v4-x64.exe”. Once the file is selected, click Next to begin the download. See image.

Once the download is complete, go to the download folder then double-click the downloaded installer to install Windows Installer 4.5 Redistributable. This will update the current Windows Installer running on your computer and fixes the problem. Support for Microsoft Windows Server 2003 ended on July 14, 2015.
