Have you checked your windows group policies for anything restricting windows installer? You might look under Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Installer...

I checked both local policy and domain policy, and nothing is configured. We typically don't use policies in our forest. The computer is not a domain controller. I have just tested a separate .MSI install to confirm that I can install .MSIs, and it worked. So I don't think my logon account is blocked, I don't know what user context the Exchange Setup is using for the install. I think maybe the message is a red herring, but I still need to figure out why the Unified Messaging is not installing.

I received an answer in a separate forum. I was able to install Unified Messaging by going into Add/Remove programs and doing a 'Change' on Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 to install the Unified Messaging role. The Clinkinator.

This happened to me under Vista.It was an unsigned patch EXE from the internet. Even though I am logged in as an administrative account, I had to Right-Click on the installation.exe and select "Run as Administrator"How much do I love Vista? Let me count the ways... Wow, that's a short list.

This worked perfectly for me - I was havingissues installing the latest VMWare 2.0 RC1 on Win 2K3 Enterprise, getting the policy error and these steps solved the problem for me and I was able to install just fine. Thanks Tim!

When I try to instal Mobireadersetup.msi, I receive this message (translated from French) :"The system admistrator configured the policy of your system to forbid this installation"I tried to enter in Administration Tools but I could not find Local security settings because I have not Vista Pro but Vista Falily Premium.Any help ?

The installation of MOBIPOCKET READER DESKTOP 6.2 is still failing on this computer which is my home computer (an Acer Aspire 9920) but it worked on my office computer on which I also have Vista Family Premium.So every day I have to go to my office with my Iliad, I connect it to my computer, I download my Ebooks and then I come back home to read my Ebooks on my Iliad.So my issue seems not to be caused by Vista; it remains inexplicable

I also faced this problem while install vmware server 2.0 rc2. If the machine is part of windows domain, you need to change policy from domain active directory. In my case, 1. change to workgroup from control panel->system2. install software2.1 if it's not works, try local security setting change.3. enroll to domain (I didn't test this part)

Save yourself a reboot by executing "gpupdate"Tested on domain controller.

Thanks Tim and Joseph!!! I am installing VMWare 2.0 RC2 and Tim's solution (copied below) worked for me also! Click Start -> Control Panel Open Administrative Tools Open Local Security Settings Click Software Restriction Policies If no software restrictions are defined, right click the Software Restriction Policies node and select New Software Restriction Policy Double click Enforcement Select "All users except local administrators" Click OK Reboot the machine (I cheated and just logged off and back on

Add me to the list of the confused then grateful!Qualitythread. I could almost justify this odd behaviour though i was trying the "run as administrator" command before making the local security policy change; what i found was that the first solution worked some times but not others!

If you check the Application event log right after the failed installation, you'll see two MsiInstaller errors: 1008 and 1625, 1008 being logged first and 1625 right after. The errors can be misleading in the way that one might think there is a policy restriction in place. In fact the errors are generated by low memory condition or heavy memory fragmentation. Here is a broad description of the cause: The umlang-en-US.msi file is almost 400Mb and Windows tries to check its authenticity. The file being too big,Windows runs out of memory, unable to complete the verification, andit decides not to trust the file, hence the errors. It is documented in MS KB925336. Try installing the hotfix as outlined at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/925336. I hit this problem when I tried to install the 32-bit trial version of Exchange 2007 on aW2K3 R2 SP2 server with 1Gb RAM running as a VMware Servervirtual machine on an XP Pro laptop with 2Gb RAM. The hotfix worked for me.

I can confirm, this helped for me as well. reboot is not neccesary, gpupdate /force does it as well. I had the problem with VMWare server 2.0 release 122956. Thanks a lot !!! and I love such troubles .....

That is a good work around, however the actual issue is with Microsoft's MSI Packager. The package is too large for the installer to handle, you can visit this KB Article for more information and the patch fix:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/925336. Install the patch for your 2003 OS Platform and reboot your machine and it works.This corrected the issue for me. Happy Server Administration!

In the case of Exchange Server 2007, it either has to be done with the Management Shell (to modify an existing installation) or using the Control Panel, as was said earlier.http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124273.aspx

I'm having this problem with Visual Studio 2008 SP1, but I do not have access to Local Security Settings on my Admin Tools menu. How do I get this - and (I assume) all the other options that should be on this menu? I would guess that it is our ____ network admin people who have taken it off.
