I just got the demo, and went to install it and found out I could not. For some reason I deleted the windows installer service a while ago, and I can not re-install it. Is there any way to get around this?

In case you've actually uninstalled it somehow, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315346/en-us

In case you've just disabled it, go: start -> settings -> control panel -> administrative tools -> services -> right click on windows installer -> properties -> set it to automatic startup

Hope that helps.

If that doesn't help jsut download "winrar", it is very simple, and even though it says you are supposed to buy it, there is no penalty that I have seen if you don't.

WinRAR wouldn't help in this case. It's a compression utility, not an installer.

It was most likely caused by malware of some sort.
