Remove Windows Installer Service
Posted on 2006-06-21
I Windows install service is corrupt. I can't start it manually and I can't install any software. I get an error message of 5 when i try to start the service. I tried this in safe mode and i get another error message. I have tried to re-register the Windows installer service and get some type of error that says no subscribers. I figured the only way to fix the problem is to reinstall the service. I downloaded the program but can not remove the old service. when i renamen my msi.dll it comes right back. This is on a Windows 2000 Server. I can't upgrade my Windows Installer to a new version because my Service pak won't allow me to and since I have an Iomega NAS I can't upgrade my service pak.
How can i remove this service so i can re-instal it.
