Windows 7: "Windows Installer Service Access" Error 0xc06d007e

21 Oct 2018   #11

Win 7 Pro 64-bit (SP1)


On a laptop with less than 4G of RAM, install Win 7 32, not 64 bits. It'll run much better
Why? I'm given to understand that 64 bits can run a heavy duty program like MS Office, et al., on less memory. NOT to argue, but gain better grasp for greater overall insight that might help later.

To install 32 bits you need to do a fresh install.
But WHERE to find legit Install key or Product ID that won't go bad 2 years down the line again?

Roy has asked twice to run the MGAdiag so he can tell what is the problem with your license. Please do it.
Please see my very recently posted reply to Roy with graphic visual illustration and feel free to supply any information you deem helpful.

Tnx, again

Hi CluckeyJD,

At least its up and running, Tweaking's a good little tool

VERY IMPORTANT as you use it for work
you said it fixed 600 >>disk<< errors - were these BAD BLOCKS if yes BACK-UP IMMEDIATELY
means the disks on its way out, most here use Macrium (free)

Please copy and paste the complete results.
You do NOT need to black-out anything the results of this tool have been posted on-line 1000's of times.
from the part i can see, the info that MS rep3 gave was ambiguas.

You have a Retail licence, which can be transferred to another computer
BUT you cannot have >> 2 << using it at the same time, hence the error
Not maximum usage exceeded but more than 1 current user, which made my original comment wrong.
I DO need to see all of the report, to confirm the above as MSDN also appears as Retail
If the seller sold it more than once your fighting the others for top dog rights, ergo never ending
better news is that the key is valid for both 32/64 bit versions

RAM/32 v 64
OK lets put this in laymans terms

you have a 2 cars a) 1 litre runabout b) 3 litre 4x4
put 5 people in them - find a very long steep mountain road - car a will fail to make it to the top
They also use different types of fuel - Economy and Premium
car a can use both car b cant

The moral
Both cars work - But performance depends upon engines(RAM) fuel(32/64) people(programs) in use

Getting hold of a 32 bit Iso is not a problem.

Windows 7 HP 64

MS doesn't sell Win 7 any more.
- Windows keys for sell on Ebay: Same legit key can be sold to more than one buyer. When you have a problem, you can't find the seller (vanish).
- Reliable companies like Newegg still has legit win7 licenses for sale.

Win 7 32 or 64 bits.
- Win 32 can only deal with 3.2G of memory. If you have more than 4 G, Win 64 is mandatory.
- Win 64 uses around 2G for itself. Win 32 uses around 1G.
- You have Win 7 64 and only 2G and part of it is used buy the GPU. There will be no memory for programs and you're going to make use of slow disk virtual memory.
- If you install Win 7 32, 1 G will be for Win and 1 G will be for programs. Will run much better.

A Windows key can be used on Win 32 or win 64. If you don't have a disk, here is MS link to download it.

Tweaking's a good little tool
Yup! Tweakie won this tech newbie's heart - unless dysfunction or death do us part

... Were 600 >>disk<< errors ...BAD BLOCKS? If so, use Macrium (free)
No clue. But MV Diag report by itself is 6 pages of copy/pasted text in MS Word. Tweaker's chit takes up several subFOLDERS on 4G jumpdrive. So, I'll TRY to post or send by PM.

Retail licence (transferable) BUT can't have 2 users, hence error. Fight for top dog rights. ... But key valid for both 32/64 bit

Great. But same old bugaboo Catch-22 exists, as MS no longer sells Win 7 keys & can't trust anyone else who does. HELP!! (if U can)

RAM/32 v 64 ... in laymans terms
Do I understand you? ...

My problem is no RAM 'engine' power by low-capacity to use high-grade OS 'fuel' efficiently that contains 64 bits, as its huge strains on various built-in components not made to stand multi 'passenger' workloads. So, my 2-GB runabout engine's drive train, piston and transmission need every microdot of gas it can sip to haul 5 people on 12-hr trip. BUT fact remains: NO tiny Yugo fed best hi-test gas is gonna outrun SUV 4x4 all-terrains V-8 motor - uphill or along straight paved asphalt interstate roads.

Yet, I can level the field some by relieving low-RAM subcompact of superfluous internal fuel combustion burdens. That sum it up well 'enuf in a nutshell?

Getting 32 bit ISO not a problem.
Once again... what about a KEY to unlock ISO for useful function if present cred is invalid?

looks like your cars coming out of the tunnell.

Please run/install kb971033 -

Windows key can be used on Win 32 or 64. If you don't have disk, ... download it.
. Thanks for the link to an ISO file that took 1/2 hr to save on 8G jump drive (?). Now that I've got #1 down, how to fix my Biggest #2 Bugaboo by getting a new key without paying big $$? Or will the ISO file take care of that, too?

ISO is the Windows OS & is available free. There is no accompanying key as a retail copy that you purchase from a store would have or an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) key which is provided by M$ to install Windows on their computers. The OEM key is tied to the Motherboard of the computer. The key is what you pay for which provides you permission from M$ to use legally use their software, i.e. activates windows genuine in system, you receive updates, etc.
