Server 2008 64 bit standard member server on a domain

Windows Installer Service Could not be accessed during installation of symantec endpoint client
Verify that is properly registered and enabled.
I have Tried to Load:
Windows6.0-KB942288-v2-x64.msu and Windows6.0-KB958655-v2-x64.msu
I keep getting that this update does not apply to your system.
I have downloaded the correct version for this 2008 std server 64 bit.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated
thanks

can you install any other software?
is the Installer Server running?
are DCOM settings correct?
are you doing a right click RunAs?

Try this:
Download the latest Windows installer for the OS
Install it
Execute Symantec Antivirus.msi - If the error still appears then proceed further.
Click Start - Run - cmd
Type msiexec.exe /unregister ---enter
Type msiexec /regserver
Execute Symantec Antivirus.msi - Installation should be successful.

did you try this?

I have checked all these settings> they are OK.
Except for this method>

Method 5: Fix the broken security key for the MsiServer service
1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit.exe, and then rename the following key to Old_Security:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSIServer\Security
2. Restart the computer (you must do this).

3. Run Instmsiw.exe for installer 2.0 again; this corrects the broken security key for the MSI service.

Under MSIServer\Security  "I do not have a "Security" KEY so there is nothing for me to rename.
