Sounds like the Windows Installer service is working fine don't worry about having the service set to manual it's the windows default it only starts when needed.

 

Tell me how are you concluding it isn't working?

I am downloading an msi-file in relation to an installation of a mathematics program, my school is providing called MathCad. To install this correctly, I have to download a file, from this link: http://goo.gl/gbgCct

 

But everytime I do so, and open it, it opens in wordpad, with a lot of coding I guess.

I'm getting 404 error on the link... but I don't need it.

 

What is the version of MathCad you want to install?

Hi,
 
The problem with MathCad 15 happens because the program isn't build for install/work on Windows 8.1!
Before working on the Mathcad problem I would like to fix the WinDefender glitch presented on the FSS log.

  • Run Farbar Service Scanner (FSS)
  • on the Search box type:
    windefend
  • click the button Export Service
  • a new file FSS.txt is created on the same folder where you have FSS
  • attach the file to your post (Hint: Use the More Reply Options button to Attach files)

Here you go, when I tapped the export service button, it said it wanted me to pick a service, even though I already checked "windows defender"

Please follow my instructions carefully. You don't need to check any check box, this time type windefend on the Search box.
