Windows 2000 Server / Windows Installer Service

Have tried to start up the Windows installer service from one of our server.  I have logged onto the physical machine as both the local admin and domain admin.  
Each time I try to start the service it says error 5: access denied.

Can any one help?

Thanks

Vince

Incidentally I only have 80 points so thats all I can offer

hi

try to logon as domain admin
enter into the services and into the windows installer
you will find the log on tab
now i can think of 2 things
1. it is assign to log on as a service
2. you will see that a user (admin or not)is sign there

i think that you should try to put the user you are loged in (domain admin) and see that the pasword is correct

hope it helped you

perhaps you can install the sp3 if its no installed

If smopi's advice does not help, are you getting anything in the event log, we would need event id and source?

I logged on as the domain admin then accessed the services.  I looked at the properties of that service and choose the logon and selected the logon as option I browsed for out domain admin user name and selected ok.
I then added in the correct password refreshed the server and logged out.  I then logged back in as the domain admin and went to services and started the service.

Cheers again.
