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

"Windows Installer Service Access" Error 0xc06d007e

Hi,

As a tech neophyte idiot who is quite literally becoming a lunatic over error messages that prevent every attempt to install apps in .msi formats. I've done all I know, from CMD com admin rearm (hit my limit of 5 long ago), "/ unregister" and System Restore back to before this issue developed - all for naught

NOTE: (Upgraded Win Vista OEM to 7 PRO (SP1) a few years ago from ISO file & Prod. Key bought on eBay with ISO file & Key bought on eBay 2-3 years ago. Suddenly, though, 'not genuine' Error 0xC004F009 messages show on every restart or boot-up. Per MS, the eBay seller exceeded their end user key limit, so that's allegedly why this happened to me.

Can anyone please suggest viable solutions? I'm in a Catch-22, as MS no longer sells Win 7. And I've read some very bad reviews for Reimage Repair by users who advise buyers to "BEWARE" or lose their shirts.

Tnx in advance for all your helpful suggestions to both foreposed questions.

Welcome to the Forum

Win 7 keys bought on ebay are highly rated as pirate.

Hi CluckeyJD,

first off thats 2 different problems.

the .msi installer one will relate to the Trusted Installer
you could download Tweaking.com portable - use the reset Permissions option.

As for the non-genuine thats a bigger one
google the key you have if it comes back with multiple hits OH DEAR, nothing we or MS can/will do.

Looking at your system specs you definately need more RAM, as your running a 64bit OS.

Might be a good time to bite the bullet and go for a newer machine.
see last post here as your in the States
Microsoft says Windows OS not genuine copy

ROY: Did you mean to imply that a pirated Win 7 OS activation key has no relation to why the machine it's associated with fails to install software? Quite frankly, the installation issue is far more problematic for me than "non-genuine" error messages I rarely see anyway.

Another vital note is TWO different MS reps verified my Win 7 Pro key and advised its validity right before helping me install the ISO file downloaded from an MS website. A 3rd MS rep further stated that "non-genuine" error is caused by eBay seller's exceeding max. limit on end user licenses.

So, for my future reference, can you offer a bit more detailed explanation of why eBay activation keys are notorious piracies? Is it possible to workaround this by simply rebuying a new key & ISO file each time the previous ones deactivate 1 or 2 years later?

Tnx again

If MS no longer sells keys to activate its own out-of-date Win 7 OS, how can 3rd parties offer teh buyer any guarantees against perpetual reoccurrence of this problem?

Would a 32-bit clean reinstall fix my low system resource issue - or create more problems with far worse consequence for me?

Hi CluckyJD,

Correct invalid key does not stop installation of programs

Statement2 where the Rep said why >>MAX users reached
This makes yours a volume licence - Issued to Companies/Schools and to MSDN
Therefor illegal to sell on ANY site
without seeing the results of this tool, cant tell which - suspect MSDN

Did you google it


An install of a 32bit OS should get rid of the .msi problem and you'll see better performance

Yes, even tech neophytes can see that twice the RAM it had before is never bad for any PC system. But geeks at Sony Inc. are IT freaks who didn't let this model's RAM nodules expand twice more than once from 1GB off the shelf to 2GB at "optional" self expense. Can a 2gig machine run a 32-bit OS as efficiently as 4 gigs running 64 bit OSes? If so, what task(s) must be done to accomplish that?

Oh? Pray tell when hell sees daylight after its decrepit device made its debut a decade ago? Since then, I bit 7 more bullets that hit my A$$ets so hard, no high regard or trust is left for PC makers, movers or fakers. Instead, one is wise who relies on their own counsel to rarely go wrong in the long run. But self-guidance requires fuel to sustain an endless quest for fresh knowledge of best quality in highest quantity as possible to attain. That's what I hope to gain here with no fear of lies or false guise from unbiased sources.

So, what newer device(s) do you suggest and how to determine which one(s) truly qualifies?

On a laptop with less than 4G of memory you should have installed Win 7 32, not Win 7 64 bits. It will run much better.
To install 32 bits you need to do a fresh install.

Roy has asked twice to run the MGAdiag so he can tell what is the problem with your license. Please do it.

See an image below to show the main MG Diag Tool dialog that came up when all tests had run. Please direct your attention to a red rectangular area at the top and advise which tab's info you must review.

Yes, both ID and Installed Key, for 100% NEGATIVE results, based on no match found in Google Search results. Is that good or bad? What steps come next to ensure a thorough investigation?
NOTE: From best I can make of MGV Diag test results, my Prod. ID and Installed Key are both valid!(?)

Well, sir, as I prefer my best to come last ...

I'm tickled pink to tell you that Tweaking app link in your 1st reply did the .msi trick all by itself!

Once it finally quit more than 60 minutes and 600 disk errors fixed, i installed Office 365, MG Diag, and any other program that ran on that same installer format. What a relief to finally resume vitally important PAYING work. (Which is why this reply comes belated. But NOT lightly stated by any means :))
