Fix: "The System Administrator has set policies to prevent this installation"
versions/editions of Windows do not allow the user to install directly from MSI
packages. There are a couple ways to work around this limitiation.
Description of Issue:
When you try to install the MSI, especially on Windows Server, you may get the above mentioned error.
You can launch a command line as the administrator and run the following command.
msiexec /a "LiquidMercury.CloudPower.Setup.msi"
Note the above file name may be different based on the exact file/version that you downloaded from the CloudPower web site.
You can use the attached registry import file to turn off the disabled MSI setting. Afterwards, the install should work without a reboot.
WARNING: Modifying the registry can be dangerous and you should not try it unless you're an experienced IT professional and know what you're doing. Proceed at your own risk.
If you prefer to modify the registry by hand, these are the contents of the file:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
