The HRESULT code you're getting translates to ERROR_SERVICE_DISABLED, which means "The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it." Additionally, error 1935 (0x78F in hexadecimal) is ERROR_AUTHENTICATION_FIREWALL_FAILED, described as "Logon failure: The machine you are logging on to is protected by an authentication firewall. The specified account is not allowed to authenticate to the machine." Make sure the Windows Module Installer service (msiserver) is not disabled. –  and31415 Mar 5 at 21:53
