Error 1719 and No Windows Installer?
I've had my Lenovo U350 for a about a year and a half. Towards the very beginning I've had this issue on and off, but never really noticed it. Today I tried to install steam.exe, but I keep getting an error 1719.
I went to services.msc and realized that I don't actually have a 'Windows Installer'. I know Windows Redistribute 4.5 does not work for Windows 7, so I was wondering if anyone knew how to solve this problem?
It is strange because I can install some things but not others. For example, I can install Digsby.
I don't know much about computers. Thank you for your time!
[Here is services.msc without Windows Installer present]
[Here is the error after I run steam.exe]
Edit: I noticed some sites said that the lack of Windows Installer meant that my Windows 7 is not legal/counterfeit. However, I purchased the laptop from Lenovo with a complimentary copy of Windows 7, and I have already verified authenticity, so that isn't the problem.
