Error "Windows Installer Cannot Be Accessed"
  

I have downloaded Itunes and some other softwares and afterwards I get an error message "Windows Installer cannot be accessed..This can occur when
Windows installer is not correctly installed".


I have tried to download and install Windows Installer from microsoft but when trying to run that it says "not enough storage is available for this command"

Anyone have any ideas?

Check the Windows Installer service (Control Panel - Administrative Tools, Services) is running. It should be set to manual or automatic. Also check the dependency Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service is running.

Click Start, Run, and type SERVICES.MSC. In the right pane, right-click Windows Installer, and then click Start. Also, set the service "Startup Type" to Manual.
