    Hey Guys i need some help.
    i tried to update to 9.3 from 9.2 recently and Windows or apple isn't allowing me too. i can download it just fine but when i go to install i get this error from window's installer.

    "The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can Occur if you are running windows in safe mode or if the installer is not correctly installed. please contact support personnel for assistance"

    the computer is not in safe mode. and it's a 64-bit windows 7 i'm running.

    Try creating a new user account with admin privileges and install from there. Works for some people.

    Give Full Control permission to the SYSTEM account
    Start Windows Explorer, right-click the computer's root hard drive, and then click Properties.
    Click the Security tab, and then click Add.
    In the Select Users, Computers, or Groups dialog box, click the SYSTEM account, click Add, and then click OK.
    Under Allow, click to select the Full Control check box, and then click OK.
    Click the TEMP folder and then verify that the SYSTEM account has full control.
