    I have just installed Windows 2000 SP4 on my computer and everytime I try to install MS Publisher 2000 I receive a message stating

    The Windows Installer cannot be accessed. This can occur if you are running in Safemode,or if the Windows installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance.


    I'm not in Safemode and the only topic I can find on MS support knowledge base is for service pack 3.


    Does anyone know what I should try?

    yes I had already downloaded that and attempted to install, but I get a message saying that the specified service already exists. Should a do a search for the file name and delete and then try to install the recently downloaded?
