Error when upgrading: "The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed"

Posted by winfried on 2013-08-06 06:01

Hello

I'm currently running ActivePython 2.5.1.1 on my XP Pro host.

After downloading and running the installer to 2.7.2.5, I get the following error message:

"Windows Installer: The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed."

Has someone seen this, and knows what to do?

Thank you.

I did nothing more than rebooting and could run the installer to upgrade.
