Enable Windows installer Service through GPO
I have applied a GPO that enables the windows installer service, I set it to automatic in System services under computer configuration, I also enabled Windows installer under windows component, from the client it shows that GPO is applied but the windows installer is still disabled and not started.

Are there other settings that I need to set up?

thanks

It should be enabled by default..... Set to Manual if I am not mistaken....
Can you change it Manually, and does it work?
Maybe another policy that is setting it back?

Sorry, been out of touch past few weeks..... Other things have come up in life.....
Did you get the full answer you need?
You shouldnt need it set to Automatic, as Manual allows it to be started as needed....
