The Windows Installer service could not be accessed


I always got this type of message in Windows XP when installing with MSI:

The Windows Installer service could not be accessed

But this occurs on my friend’s PC. So, I tried to start the service Windows Installer service. And the message shown:

Could not start the Windows Installer service on Local Computer.
Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a
timely fashion

And read the Event Viewer for more information. But I don’t have any idea. So, search around it from internet, and found this forum.
So, the solution is

Double click on the service, click on the Log On tab, select “Local System Account” and “Allow service to interact with desktop”. [source]
