Admin policies blocking installation despite being admin

March 30, 2012 at 04:31:30
Specs: Windows 7
When I try to install a particular program I get the error message:
"The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation."
However I'm the administrator. It does not give me an option to allow it during installation, as it does with other installations.

How can I install this program? I am on Windows 7.

Right-click on the installation program and choose "Run as Administrator". In Windows 7 not all administrators are equal.

That option isn't available. Only 'Install'. Does it matter that it's a .msi file?

Ah, that does make a difference. Have a look at http://geekswithblogs.net/BlueProbe... for a couple of solutions.

Then change the security policy. I assume you are on a domain computer so you really ought to contact a domain admin.

I managed to find a solution on that website, however I had to try a few before one worked.

Also, this is my own personal computer. I would have thought I'd have all admin privileges. How can I set my computer up to allow msi files to be installed in the future?

Someone or some program set a policy. Either remove the policy or just reload the entire OS from OEM media. It may be hacked.
