windows 8: error windows installer - Error 1723 RRS feed

  • Question

  • iI can not install any application windows installer. I have windows 8 and it asks me always an error message that will not let me install anything from windows installer. Appears to me always an error message: "Error 1723. There is a problem with this Windows Installer Package. A DLL required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor."

    There is no problem with the installation package. I installed the same package on another computer. I have a defect in the windows installer will not let me install any program. Anyone know how to fix?

    Thanks :)

  • this code means RPC_S_SERVER_TOO_BUSY. Have you tried a reboot? This something fixes issues.

  • Please check if PRC service work properly.

    Also try running Microsoft fixit
