Try this hitman, it may very well be what you're looking for.

By moving the folder to your desktop you will force InstallShield to create a new common files folder.

If not, stop back and let us know.

Good Luck

Browse to this location;
C:\Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Professional\RunTime
Rename the folder named '\09'. Don't delete it....just rename it. Run your installer. I just ran into this problem recently. This fixed it. The previous advice would accomplish the same thing, but I prefer to fix things in place without moving folders around.

It would be nice to know if any of this advice helped.

From what you have described, it appears to be Installer Error Code 1719.

Proper Microsoft steps to correct Error 1719. The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. You may be running in safe mode or Windows Installer may not be correctly installed.

I prefer method 2 as listed in the Microsoft article, but its your decision. :-)

You could also try this first as a short cut, but with no promise it will work.

Best of Luck
