MSI vs Windows Vista Home
Hello everyone!

I try to install an application (Windows Installer), the wizard
Installation opens smoothly, but when you start copying
Files to disk bypasses the following error:

"The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation"

What could be the problem?
I have Windows Vista Home Edition and i'm the 'Administrator'!

Since already many thanks!
Gustavo Arriola

RE: MSI vs Windows Vista Home
Vista Home tells you that? I can only think of three reasons why that would
happen:

1. You have a 64-bit version of Vista and you are trying to install an
unsigned driver. However, it ought to install but then fail to run, not fail
the installation.
2. You have some kind of malware that is preventing software installation.
3. The installer fails to be detected as such and attempts to install
without elevation.

There are some other options that can cause installations to fail, but those
are not surfaced on Vista Home.

Two questions to make sure we have the full scenario:
1. What software is it?
2. The installer is elevated, right? In other words, you did get a User
Account Control prompt and accept it when you launched the installer? This
one could cause it to fail, but I thought the error would be different.

Hello Jesper
Thanks for responding!

>>1. What software is it?


The software is trying to install LogMeIn, a software remote access, and use
that equipment has not attempt to manage an IP public.

>>2. The installer is elevated, right? In other words, you did get a User
>>Account Control prompt and accept it when you launched the installer? This

No, there were no dialog box before the error message.

Besides, as the person using the computer, the system leaves no uninstall
any package (or install) with the same problem.

Thanks already!

Sorry, but the idea of having traffic to my PC, containing personal
information, tunneled through a third party, just makes me shiver.

I just downloaded a copy of the LogMeIn installer, and it does prompt me for
elevation. The version on the one I got was 4.00.680. It even has a little
shield on the Next> button on the "Choose Destination Location" page. Are you
sure you are using the latest version of the installer? You could be using an
older one that is not designed for Vista.

Re: MSI vs Windows Vista Home
I'll loan you a coat.

I use it at my office with clients on an approval mode. It's TONS better
than pcanywhere, actually logs events, can be set up in an approval use
only mode (I use IT reach), as far as remote software goes, it's one of
the more security aware ones out there.

It has it's risks and it's uses.

What security software do you have running? I've not seen this on any
Vista that I've remoted into and I'm starting to remote into more and
more of them. It was one of the first to handle remoting into Vista,
lets the consultant know if the user is running in admin rights, etc.
Even has a cross platform client for Macintosh.

I'm thinking there's some security software bundle you have that may be
doing this?

Re: MSI vs Windows Vista Home

Hi,

I came up with a workaround for the "the system administrator has set
policies to prevent this installation" issue. To overcome the error we
must run the installer as admin but since the logmein installer is an
msi file it does not provide the 'run as admin' option on right click as
you are not directly running it, you are sending it to msiexec.exe. So
here's how to launch it as admin:

1. Create a batch file logmein.bat containing the following line:

msiexec.exe /i C:\PATH\TO\FILE\LogMeIn.msi

(change \PATH\TO\FILE to the actual path you have)

2. Right click the logmein.bat file and select 'Run as admin'

3. Allow security access and install as normal.

Bingo! Got it installed. An annoying amount of hoops to jump thru as
usual with Vista. Nice one microsoft.

cheers,

nick.

It's doubtful that the OP waited FIVE MONTHS to get your solution.

Probably not but it may still prove to be handy for anyone searching the
group for such as "Run as admin" etc. Even if it is a repeat it would
show up earlier than an older post.

Well done Nick.
