    I try to install any application with extension .msi , then the message box
    said " the windows installer service could not be accessed. this can occur if
    you are running windows in safe mode, or if the windows installer is not
    correctly installed. contact your support personnel for assistance".
    I used Vista 32 and did alot of work around, but no luck. The windows
    installer 4.0 not available for download and not sure how to repair or
    reinstall it.
    Anyone have any tips for this, really appreciate.
    Thank

  6. Open the help and support app on the start orb. Type in 'Recovery Options'.
    Each option your system might have included is listed in those articles.
