Re: Installer Errors and Windows Update Errors
I have this exact same problem. I am not good enough with computers to understand some of the above. But no, Windows Installer does not appear on the program list in control panel or in the windows folder. Some programs and updates are able to install some are not. It is still listed in "services" in the "administrative tools" in control panel.
I would greatly appreciate anyone who can explain how to fix this.

the same problem, but I'd be interested to know if you have the same symptoms.
click START, CONTROL PANEL
if a message asks if you want to show this, that's fine. Tell it you do.
so far so good? Ok next, we're just going to look we're not doing anything
click ADD OR REMOVE PROGRAMS
use the scrollbar on the right to scroll downward
you're looking for WINDOWS INSTALLER
That's it. I'd be interested in hearing if it was listed on your computer.
