my windows installer isn't working,
it always gives the same error: could not acces windows installer service... (etc)

i first noticed this, when trying to install office 2003 (i already have office 2002, but and tryed to install 2003 without uninstalling 2002)

and since then i'm having problems with evry application that uses Windows installer.

I already tried reregistering msiexec.exe
also tried to re-install windows installer 3.1v2
and also tried everything i could find on the microsoft webpage about this error.

help please?

eventlog errors: (translated into english)


source: MsiInstaller
code: 1015
cannot connect to server. error: 0x80080005


source: Service Control Manager
code: 7034
windows installer was terminated unexpectedly

source: DCOM
code: 10010
The server {000C101C-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} did not register with DCOM within time limit
--> seemst to reffer to MSIserver

Dial a fix solved my install problem.


Windows installer cleanup helps sometimes.

hi, thanks for the reply

i tried every thing on the microsoft pages, that only made it worse
so i had to reinstall

unfortunately i did not have the chance to try dial-a-fix,
it was prolly one of the few things i did not try yet.

But thanks anyway!
