A Service Pack may not necessarily come with a new Windows Installer.
Check the release notes to be sure.

The latest (I think) Windows Installer is available at
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=889482FC-5F56-4A38-B838-DE776FD4138C&displaylang=en
. Download that and see if it helps.
