Windows Installer issue
Posted on 2009-04-23
On my Windows 2003 server domain, I have an issue with Windows installer. In group policy, the installer service is set to start automatically on workstations, and it does immediately after reboot. After 15 minutes, the service stops -- all my services that are not being used do this. They are supposed to start back up when they are needed. My problem is that the installer service will not start up again automaticlly, and it will only start manually after you go to Start > Run and type in the command " msiexec /regserver ". I believe the reason the service stops is due to a GPO setting. Does anyone know where the setting is in gpo that allows unneeded services to stop until needed? Or does anyone know why I have to register msiexec everytime I start the service? Thanks for your help.
