Adds, modifies, and removes applications provided as a Windows Installer (*.msi) package. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.
|Windows 7 edition||without SP||SP1|
|Display name:||Windows Installer|
The Windows Installer service runs as LocalSystem in its own process. It does not share an executable file with other services. If the Windows Installer fails to load or initialize, the error is recorded into the Event Log. Windows 7 startup should proceed, but a message box is displayed informing you that the msiserver service has failed to start.
Windows Installer will not start, if the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service is stopped or disabled.
