You could try download the MSIEXEC redistributable from the Microsoft website and reinstalling it again.

Microsoft's Technet also has a few articles on how to "repair" the Windows Installer engine if it breaks.
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
