Windows SharePoint Timer service is not started


When you are trying to install a solution package built using the SharePoint installer from CodePlex, you may run into an issue during the install where you get an error message “Windows SharePoint Timer Service is not started”.

The installer is unable to verify the status of the timer service and hence throws this message.  To remedy, start the install using the application pool account or a farm admin account and the installer would continue its process
