Do you experience this kind of problem whenever you attemp to install an application in windows box (2k, xp)?
"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. Contact your support personnel for assistance."
The ms website knowledge article 324516 gives 2 methods as a way of fixing this problem, but you might be very lucky if any of the 2 fixes the problem, alot of guys end up formating their systems and doing fresh windows installations or try wired ways of fixing it.
Well, the solution is very easy:
1. right click your root windows installation drive i.e drive where you installed windows 2. click properties at the bottom 3. select security tab 4. click Add and scroll down to SYSTEM account click add and click OK. 5. allow Full control permission and click Apply and then Ok.
This should solve your problem with windows installer.

0x80070641means ERROR_INSTALL_SERVICE_FAILURE - The Windows Installer Service could not be
accessed. This can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed.

Go to Start > Run > type in services.msc > OK. The Services window will open, scroll down to Windows Installer and double click on it. The Properties window will open, on the drop down menu (Start up type) select 'automatic' > OK and close windows. Reboot PC and hopefully it will work for you.

Try downloading the Windows Installer for your Windows version.

Once downloaded, double click it and let it install itself. After the restart,ensure the settings given above.

To troubleshoot issues that may prevent a program from being installed correctly on a Windows Vista-based computer, follow this link.
Or you can open a command prompt and type "msiexec / regserver" .

New application software can not installed


I SOLVED THIS ON MY LAPTOP BY REINSTALLING THE WINDOWS INSTALLER. THIS PROBLEM USUALLY HAPPENS WHEN THE INSTALLER IS CORRUPTED BY SOME MALFUNCTION. THE BEST SOLUTION IS TO UNINSTALL AND RE-INSTALL THE PROGRAM FROM THE MICROSOFT WEBSITE. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU.
