BIG Thanks to Flavius.

-In Windows 7 is installed Windows Installer 5.0.You cannot install even 4.5 on Win 7.Unfortunatelly still there is no MS fix for WIndows Installer 5.0.

-In my opinion switchers like msiexec /regserver not working any more in newest systems.

More discussions about Windows Installer in Windows 7 here:Error 1335

So if you have any problem with this service you can only try to fix manually
You can try this fix to registry http://www.sevenforums.com/attachmen...ue-msiserv.zip
Import above fix to registry and next restart computer.
Many thanks for this. It worked a treat and enabled me to install Office 2010. I had tried most of the other suggestions on various forums but none worked until yours. Thanks again.
