...you'll have a problem with all programs that need UAC elevation

Firstly, immediately after booting with absolutely no errors, UAC classifies virtually every program that needs elevated rights in order to run as from Unknown Publisher, and pops up the famous 'Allow/Cancel an unidentified program wants access to your computer'. (after clicking on allow, though, the intended-to-run program runs just fine)

Then, after a while, UAC doesn't start at all and all that shows (for the same class of programs) is the 'The service cannot accept control messages at this time' error message

You may wonder why I posted this thread :) well...
..at first I wrote it as a problem for which I hoped to get help here, and then decided to post anyway because some of the vista users who want to slim down the services load may encounter this "self-solving" "problem" ;)

Hi,

We are in the process of developing a Cryptographic Service Provider (CSP) and a Key Storage Provider (KSP) which are implemented as Dynamic-link libraries (.dll). The final product needs to be digitally signed in order for Windows to accept and use our implementations.

I read on MSDN that developers used to send an email to [email protected] and request that Microsoft do the signing. I sent an email to them, requesting more information about the process, but haven't received any feedback in about three months.

I figured an alternative would be to buy a "Code Signing certificate for Microsoft Authenticode" from a trusted CA, such as Symantec, and use that to sign the appropriate files ourselves. Would this be possible? I am just not sure whether it is permitted that security products, such as CSPs and KSPs, can be signed by the developers themselves and whether Microsoft wants to look at the implementations first.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

A:How to digitally sign a Cryptographic Service Provider (CSP)

A search seems to indicate that email address is still correct. There is also indications you must download a Cryptographic Provider Development Kit

Hi,

One of our computer having a problem, a Pentium 4 with a Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 2.

It has many issues, the source of which seems to be that the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service doesn't start.

As a consequence Windows Update, System Information, System Restore, User & Accounts control panel, printers, Windows Firewall, ActiveX, and many other things all don't work.

I can't install anything. And when I go into Device Manager, Services, or other things like that, I can't view the properties of any items.

Almost all services don't work, maybe they depend on Remote Procedure Call too?

If I go into Services (only Standard view works), I can see that Remote Procedure Call is set as "Automatic" startup type, but is not "Started" at all.

Any attempt to start it manually results in the error "Could not start the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service on Local Computer. Error 5: Access is Denied".

! I purchased a Dell 5759 just a few months ago from Amazon. Since its purchase, the battery randomly cuts out at intervals of every few to several days with no triggering events.  I attempted to seek help a few times but apparently my service tag and express service code cannot be recognized by the system.  I've tried calling the Inpsiron help number, but for better or worse, the call is disconnected when my numbers cannot be recognized.
Now I get a Dell Power Management error that the system can no longer communicate with my battery.  It has ceased functioning en toto.  Without being able to register, I cannot get help for this issue, but when I go to email any kind of technical support, the Service Tag or Service Code are the gateway to having access to submitting a ticket.
I'm not sure what else to do at this point. This is a perfectly fine otherwise smooth running computer but I need the battery to work and not cut out at random intervals.  Any ideas would be appreciated.

Then scroll down and there will be several Windows programs listed. As you can see where it is listed in mine below.

I'm using windows xp and should be able to download programs and updates - unable to now.

I'm having problems with my windows installer service.  I've tried several different things, however, I can't get it to work.  Can anyone help me?  I've been having a lot of problems with my computer lately, so I think I may have some malware that I cannot find.  
 
Thanks for the help.

OS=WinXP Pro, 64-bit.

Weeks after my CMOS battery died, followed by a long period of trouble-shooting, we finally got my system working properly, EXCEPT that I cannot install any applications (such as Photoshop CS4), or drivers, including those which had been working on my system before the problems.

I get "Error 1719. WinInstallerService failed" during attempt to install drivers for an HP multi-funtion printer and others.

I've downloaded the latest version of same from MS website; and online instructions, followed them, but no success. I keep getting that error message, even with programs which apparently have their own installers.

I've run chkdsk at startup, found and corrected 3 errors, but no change in basic problem.

Any help? I'm out of business without my app's.

Windows Installer hell!
So far I have not found a true solution for this one. On Windows 2000 when I try to install a program I get a message that says:

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

I read somewhere that renaming the Windows Installer damaged files and then reinstalling Windows Installer would be the solution. I tried that but the files in question could not be renamed because they are part of the Operating System. Can anybody out there help?????

We have an HP Pavillion G60 laptop. For various reasons we have had to reinstall Windows twice.
Now, there are certain programs we can't install as the Windows installer service has no launch path. We get the error message "The WIndows installer service could not be accessed". When we go into services, the launch directory for the service is blank.

The files needed to launch the programs are on the computer.

The system restore fails to work. Any ideas how we fix this without having to reinstall windows yet again ?

Hi
I have this frustrating error which prevents me from installing Windows Installer Service. I wanted to install Microsoft .Net framework 4.6 for Corel Graphic Suite X8 but then I had this error saying:
"Setup cannot run, because the Windows Installer Service is not available on this computer."
So I tried Googling for an answer and I tried command prompt (using run as administrator) "net start MCIServer" but It said:
"The service name is invalid".
I then opened the services window and I didn't find Windows Installer so I thought I should download it. I downloaded it from Microsoft website but again I had this error "The requested operation requires elevation".
I'm so tired of these errors and I've had a frustrating day and this is killing me at the moment.

HiWhen I tried to remove McAfee I got a message stating that Windows Installer Service couldn't be accessed because I was either in safe mode (which I wasn't) or it wasn't installed properly.

I have to always restart the Windows Installer Service before installing any software. It is set in services.msc to automatically start.

This is the path as displayed in 'services.msc:'

C:\WINDOWS\system32\msiexec.exe /V

Startup Type: Automatic

I will restart the service, install some software and have to restart the service because it stops on it's own.

Anyone know how to keep this service from being disabled? What could be disabiling this service?

Thanks!

Joseph
 

A:Windows Installer Service

Once the install has been completed the Windows Installer Service (msiexec) should stop -- it is normally set not to "automatic" startup -- but to "manual" and should start without action on your part when the setup program calls for it.

I'm having a problem with Windoze XP Home, SP2. When I tried to upgrade to Office 2003 basic, an error message pops up saying,

"The windows installer service could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running windows in safe mode or if the windows installer is not correctly installed.Contact support personnel for assistance."

I'm not running windows in safe mode and I've never seen this problem before. I've since tried to install msn messenger 7.0 with the same result. I've tried to re-install the windows installer, but i'm not sure how to install only this component; it's not in the "optional windows components" list. I'd really rather not re-install windows if i can avoid it, what should I try next?

Had this problem for about a month now, I know where this has originated from but after trying multiple things I cannot for the life of me find a solution. So I'll start with a little background, my some what new hard drive failed on me and I sent it off to Seagate for a replacement, seeing as this was going to take about 5 days to come back with a replacement I decided to install Vista back onto what was my old hard drive and previously my secondary hard drive. So I installed Vista and 5 days later my replacement hard drive arrived from Seagate. To make things easier for myself seeing as I'd already got myself setup on this old hard drive I decided it'd just be easier to copy everything straight across from one hard drive to the other. My tool of choice in this was Norton Ghost which I'm not sure at this point if that was the smartest thing to do.

Anyway after this I booted from the new hard drive and everything seem alright, however the OS still seems to be using some files from the old hard drive and if I remove these files the system fails to boot. This is all well and good however when I try install anything that uses the Windows Installer service it says it cannot be accessed. I've tried everything here and other variants such as those listed there. I can install things using service if I switch back to the old hard drive, so my guess is that it's trying to access it there from the copy on the new hard drive, which obviously won't wo...

So I'm trying to install the Pokemon TCGO, and every time I get this message:
 
"The Windows Installer Service cannot be accessed. This can occur if you are running in Safe Mode, or if the Windows Installers is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance."
 
So I was confused for a number of reasons:
 
I'm clearly not in Safe Mode
I had already installed multiple different programs before this happened.
I can still uninstall programs
I can still install some programs, but not others (was able to install another game, but not League of Legends or Microsoft Office)
I never made any changes to anything regarding the Windows Installer before this started happening.
So I figured it was just a mishap and restarted the computer...but that didn't fix it.
 
So I tried installing as an administrator...that didn't work either.
 
So I googled the error message, and I found many different ways to approach the situation, but most of them only applied to Windows XP or 2000.
 
I will try to list everything I've attempted up until this point:
 
I typed 'msconfig' in Run and checked under Services to make sure Windows Installer was running and was set to manual...which it already was.
I checked to make sure it was started, and restarted it just to be sure.
I typed in 'regedit' and edited the MSIServer ImagePath value to that of where the actual msiexec.exe was located.
I made sure there wasn't an extra msiexec.exe anywhere, of which... Read more

Whenever I try to uninstall a program that utilizes the Windows Installer Service, it gives me this error message



An example of a program that causes this problem to appear is Ventrilo. I tried to uninstall it, to install the newer 2.3 version, and got that error.

In the installations, I get this error message.



I believe the two problems are related, but how do I fix these files?
