Hi, this is Windows XP Service Pack 2 and facing some problems with Windows Installer. Since past two weeks whenever I try to install any thing on computer I use to get the following error message:
"The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running Windows in safe mode or if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed."
So far I have went through various MS KB articles but none of them helped. Here is the complete log of the error messages:
Re: Windows Installer
If the problem is with Windows Installer why dont you simply download the most recent version of Installer from Microsoft and install. This will fix the problem. Get it from here: Windows Installer 3.1 now available for XP
Apart from this there are few MS Knowledge Base articles which i would like you to go through.
The "Windows Installer Service Could Not Be Accessed" Error Message appears When You Add or Remove Program - 1719
This update helps resolve an issue where Windows Installer running on Windows XP Service Pack 2 stops responding when you install an update.

I have had this problem for a couple of days now. When I try to run other programs, "Windows Installer" pops up and tries to load Office 2003 (which I have), but, not using at this particular time. In the installation process I get a window that states that SKU111.cab cannot be found.
The only way to close the installer is by using the ctr-alt-del, but then it pops up again. I just can't get rid of it. I have no idea what caused it to do this in the first place.
Please keep response simple.
