Error while installing windows service. Error code is 2869


I have created  windows service and added project installer in it. Yesterday I was getting error as "The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2869." After sometime when i tried again installing, it worked, the service got installed. But i couldnt figure out what the problem was.

And  today now again i am trying to install that setup without making any changes (from the backup of the service that i took yesterday), i am getting the same error.

Please provide me some solution asap.
