  • Just to be clear you are talking about Windows Installer and not Windows Modules Installer.
     
    Click Start - All Programs - Accessories - Right click Command Prompt and choose Run As Administrator. Type (or copy the below lines and one blank line underneath and right click in the command prompt window and choose Paste). This will start the dependent services in the correct order. Then turn it on once started.
     
    If you get an error message you can copy it by right clicking the window, choosing Mark, selecting the text, and press enter.
    sc start DCOMLaunch
    sc start RpcSs
    sc config msiserver start= auto
    sc start msiserver</PEW>

  • Click Start - All Programs - Accessories - Right click Command Prompt and choose Run As Administrator. Type Regedit and File menu - Import and import msiserver_vista_32.reg from.
     
     
    It should work on 64 or 32 bit vista.
     
    Reboot.

    Click Start - All Programs - Accessories - Right click Command Prompt and choose Run As Administrator. Type (or copy the below lines and one blank line underneath and right click in the command prompt window and choose Paste). This will start the dependent services in the correct order. Then turn it on once started.
