in the beginning i had problems with installing msi packages which was later fixed by following instructions on websites and forums to either tweak the registry or use group policy editor.so that fixed the issue,but however there are certain msi packages that still fail to install with the same error that administrator has set poilicies tor prevent installtion or local policy restriction has forbidden this install.
i have a feeling that it wont be just some,but in the future i think there will be many more msi packages that fail,although most of them install.i want a fix so that every msi package can get installed.
ill explain my exact problems where msi packages failed.
1.first when i completed installing gta4,towards the end of the installation,i get an error message that system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation.then i doubted the game would work,however it worked.so at the end of installation there must have been some small component to install which may have been an msi package that failed.this was the same time where other msi packages failed for me but was later fixed with the group policy tweak.but even after those problems were fixed,when i tried installing gta 4 again,the same error popped up in the end,meaning that the msi issue was not 100 percent solved.
2.second scenario was,i was updating my windows 7 home premium,that time all the updates succeeded but a few failed.normally this would be fixed by installing the updates that were already downloaded,then restartng the pc and again trying the same updates.that time it worked,but again,out fof the 3 last updates, 2 succeeded and 1 failed.so i tried the same method,of installing the remaining 2,then rebooting and trying the last update again,but it still failed.i rebooted a few times,still no use.
the update thatr failed was a security update for dotnetfix 2010 which was KB2467173.
so i googled the issue to find that a few other people were having the same problem that,was with this same KB2467173.they said that it failed to install for them too.then i tried downloading and installing the hotfix of KB2467173 from the link they provided in the forum and manually installing.yet again it failed and ended with "installation did not succeed",then i noticed below that it was written,"this installation is forbidden by system policy",then i had a feeling,that it had something to do with msi packages.however the hotfix that i downloaded was .exe format,but there could be msi contents within .exe itself and finally,my thinking was right,i clicked on the log file and it showed me the folowing:
Number of applicable items: 4
MSI (c:\008094d6c44fe0d208\vc_red.msi) Installation failed. Msi Log: Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x64 Redistributable Setup_20130826_080756504-MSI_vc_red.msi.txt
Final Result: Installation failed with error code: (0x80070659), "This installation is forbidden by system policy. Contact your system administrator. " (Elapsed time: 0 00:00:05).
so again it was an msi file that failed.so please help me get a solution for a 100 percent restriction free msi installation method.remember,before telling me the answers,i have already tried all suggested methods on the forums.my windows 7 install is fresh,just 10 hours ago.done all updates!!
no viruses.im an advanced user,so everything with my pc is absolutely fine to my knowledge.an also remember that many other people have the similar problem which is still not yet solved
