Hello all,

I have recently been looking for a driver updater for my newly built gaming desktop. I want a free one, and most of the ones I came across require registration or a purchase. I finally found SlimDrivers, a completely free one. But when I go to install it, I get this error:

The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personal for assistance.

I try and try again, but it never works. How do I fix this? If it can't be fixed, what program should I use instead? Please don't say windows update.

this is not likely a problem with the program but rather the windows installer service. try downloading and reinstalling the latest version. belay that,it seems,upon further looking that windows installer is part of the win 7 os. further research is needed here.

Where to download the latest version? It probably is pretty obvious, sorry for asking.

and what do you mean further research?
