Hi DarkLight97,

a.        Click Start, Click Run and type “Services.msc” (without quotes) and press Enter.

b.       Double-click Windows Installer.

c.        Set the Startup type of Windows Installer to Manual.

d.       Click Start to start the service. Note down the error message if any. Click OK.

 

Method 2: Reregister the Windows Installer. Follow these steps for the same.

 

a.           Quit all Windows programs.

b.           Click Start, All Programs, Accessories and click Run. Type “msiexec /unregister” (without quotes) in the Open box, and then click OK.

c.           Click Start, All Programs, Accessories and click Run. Type “msiexec /regserver” (without quotes) in the Open box, and then click OK. Restart your computer.

(I know this response is very late but I just want to share my experience with the error) I encountered same issue when I ran installer on Windows 2012 R2. So one of my colleagues advised me to perform the following, and installation went through successfully.

- Renamed C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\MachineKeys folder to MachineKeys.old
- Recreate C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\MachineKeys folder
- Moved C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\MachineKeys.old to C:\Temp\

- Re-run the installer
