I am trying to install Premiere Elements 3.0 on my Vista Business 32bit computer, but I am getting an error during the installation.
The error states "The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed." I get this no matter what:
-Right click and Run As Administrator
-Right click and set compatibility as XP
-Running the PRE_302_EFGJ Vista patch yields the same error
I have successfully installed many other pieces of software, only PE3 is giving me issues.
Is this a known issue or could something be up with my system?
Thanks in advance,
I assume that you have turned off all anti-virus, pop-up blocker and spyware programs. These cause many installation failures.
Make sure you've got the latest updates to Vista, including the option ones. You'll need to manually go to Windows Update and click the option to install all updates to do this.
Also ensure that you have the latest Quicktime.
Also, don't know if this will help, but...
And this may also help.
