windows installer service RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi

    I have this frustrating error which prevents me from installing Windows Installer Service. I wanted to install Microsoft .Net framework 4.6 for Corel Graphic Suite X8 but then I had this error saying:

    "Setup cannot run, because the Windows Installer Service is not available on this computer."

    So I tried Googling for an answer and I tried command prompt (using run as administrator) "net start MCIServer" but It said:

    "The service name is invalid".

    I then opened the services window and I didn't find Windows Installer so I thought I should download it. I downloaded it from Microsoft website but again I had this error "The requested operation requires elevation".

    I'm so tired of these errors and I've had a frustrating day and this is killing me at the moment.

    Thank you.
