Windows Installer does not work, error 1917: Windows Installer not available
Tried so far:
1. Did everything Whiskeyman asked for
2. Everything under http://support.micro...kb/315346/en-us
3. Reset all rights with subinacl, see post #6, tried to reinstall Windows Installer, seems to fail
The Problem persists!
A reinstallation of Windows Installer seems to fail, see log files in my fourth post, sixth post in total in this thread.
Please help me, I really don't know what to do to install and uninstall programs that make use of the Windows Installer
Since some time i am not able to install or unsintall products based on the "Windows Installer". The error is 1719, the windows installer could not be accessed.
After unregistering, reregistering the installer with
both in standard and in safe mode, after renaming and reinstalling the whole thing, i found that nothing works. The problem presists.
Then I noticed that I can only do this procedure with my standard account that DOES HAVE administrator rights. When I log in as admin in safe mode, the procedure fails. So I think my persmissions are messed up, and I want to correct this with subinacl as described in
for example. Now the thing is, I do not have subinacl. And when I download it, I get subinacl.msi, which I can not install sice the Windows Installer is not working. And I cant fix the Windows Installer since subinacl can not be installed. (edit: got subinacl installed by now)
My problem is pretty much explained in
, unfortunately in german. It is fixed by installing subinacl by using an old version of msiexec. Unfortunately I do not have such an old version.
What can I do?
I am trying for hours and I am really desperate now.
