Disable Windows Installer

by nepenthe0 In reply to MS installer issue

Simple solution. I don't know why Windows Installer is so obnoxious, but this kind of shenanigans happens a lot.

To disable Windows Installer:

Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services > Windows Installer

Right click Windows Installer, click Properties, and select disable.

When you want to install a new program, remember to enable Windows Installer. If you forget, the installation will abort if it depends upon Windows Installer, and you will see a message that the Installer could not be accessed.

After fessing up to what they had tried to do, I was able to get the MSIcuu2 app to work properly. Thanks for the tip tho.
