I get an error:

"The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if the windows installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance"

I have followed all the Microsoft and top 3 Google results for this issue, and still receive this error. Other programs still instal fine.

My computer is windows 7.

open the CMD shell as administrator (type "CMD" in windows start menu, do a right click, run-as Admin)
do an "sfc /scannow"

If that does not help, try
Msiexec /unregister
Msiexec /regserver

try this ZIPped one.

just extract it somewhere.
Have fun Smile
