    This issues been a real bugger for me.

    This looks like a good idea from IT Tim but during the attempt, after clicking detect and repair some installer service hangs and eventually reports,”The windows installer service could not be accessed…this can occur if the windows installer is not correctly installed. Contact someone else…”

    Any ideas
