Windows 7: error 1719 The windows installer service could not be accessed.......

error 1719 The windows installer service could not be accessed.......

I bought a new hard drive to free up space from my C: drive all went well until copied all files to the new HD including all windows files (mistake) now the new drive (E is shown as an OS drive like C: so when I try and install a new program like Ventrilo (or any program that needs the installer service) it's tiring to use E: drive installer service. I tried to reformat E: but OS says it can't do that because windows is using that drive. Any help would be appreciated.error 1719 The windows installer service could not be accessed.......-hd-os.png

Mike,
Welcome to SevenForums.

carry out following:

HOW TO POST A SNAPSHOT OF DISK MANAGEMENT DISPLAY

WIN=key with Microsoft logo on top.

Look at what is shown in the snippet.

E is you boot drive, system drive drive, active on Disk 0.

Your computer boots up to the E drive.

I assume that is not what you wanted.

Am I correct?

you need to fill out your system specs which will also answer a couple of questions for me:

Here's how to fill out those specs. Be sure to use either Speccy or SIW since they provide more info and the info you need to carry out the procedure completely.

Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

In the System Manufacturer Block, enter:
Manufacturer and Model and
ADD the word laptop, desktop, netbook or tablet.
For example:
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

You will find that in Speccy, you can select info from the display
using your mouse/touchpad and then paste that info into your specs.

SIW is a marvelous program, but the free version does not offer
this capability.

That's excellent.

Now, you didn't answer my question about how you would like for your system to be.

Please carry out following and then upload diskinfo.txt.
