Windows Intstaller Error 1719
 
So, I'm getting a little frustrated. I'm not very familiar with computer
software and how it works, so please explain this to me as if I were 10.

When I try to install programs on my computer, ( I have XP professional
x64 edition), I keep getting this error...

Error 1719, The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can
occur if you are running in safe mode, or if the Windows Installer is not
correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance.

I know I'm not in safe mode. I contacted my support personnel, they said
to reinstall my OS. I tried, but I got a message saying that my hard drive
wasn't powered (something like that).
I then tried to just reinstall portions of XP instead of the whole thing,
nothing. I've looked up every "Windows Installer" update/download Microsoft
has to offer and I get either, " This is for a different platform" or that
same error message.
I just don't know whats wrong, or how to fix it.

Please explain, Thanks.

RE: Windows Intstaller Error 1719
 
I'm there with you. I have a brand new Dell Precision 690 with Windows XP
x64. I was able to install a couple of products before the error started to
appear. I'm currently trying to install a 64-bit version of McAfee and the
Trial Version of VS 2005. I've followed the solutions on KB315346 and
KB898715. Neither worked for me. If you find a solution or somebody else has
one, please let us know.

Thanks.

The original post has not landed here yet, so this goes to the both of you:

Check this link:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315346

Usually, re-installing portions of the OS isn't going to help. Not unless we
are talking updates.

When ref. to Error Messages, please copy them verbatim - [something like
that] isn't a good place to start, since these codes may cover several
different types of failures, and usually takes a good deal of time to
excavate.

Re: Windows Intstaller Error 1719
 
I had the page already printed from the link below. The way the process is
stated didn't work, but when I changed the MSI Installer service to Manual
and stopped it then followed the unregistering and registering from the link
below, then restarting the service then the installer worked. Seemed to be a
lot of steps to make it work, but at least it works now.

Thanks.

Creativity and perseverance makes up for a lot of deficiencies in human
inventions. Good work!
