    Default Windows Installer up the butt. If there is a god, give me emulation.

    The bug/problem:

    Well I am trying to install D-Tools and for some reason every time I try it does this -

    1)I click the install .exe
    2)A fast screen goes by than a readme pops up.
    3)Once I close the readme a pop up comes.
    4)It asks's me if I want to run setup.exe
    5)I click "yes."
    6)Screen pop's up with this image.

    If the URL of the image doesn't work, here's a quote from what it 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."


    Operating System and any major updates:
    Windows XP(2002) SP1

    Version of Daemon-Tools:
    Does it matter, I tried allmost every .msi and I've tried allmost every other program besides d-toolz and nothing is working, I allways get the same annoying error.

    ALL burning software or other cd emulation software:
    I tried allmost every other program, but I got the exact same error every time. I don't have a CD-RW either, just a CD-ROM.

    Have you or are you running easy cd creator:
    If you mean roxio, yes. I didn't use it on my comp, I burned a CD image on my friends Alienware and than burned a daemon tools installer on a seprate CD from the image. I tried and tried so many programs. PLEASE HELP ME FOR GOD SAKES! I just want to run a image because I broke the original CD. (scrathed to death)

    Please check in computer management if Windows Installer service is not disabled!

    I have run it on every other comp as well, even this one. But I have formatted so many times and done so many things, but those shouldn't affect d-tools. Anyways anyone know what might be happening? I can get Parragon CD-Emulator but I don't even think I can run WC3 off of it, and plus this demo version doesn't support adding CD-IMAGES. :-/
