Administrator cannot install certain software

Post by Jerry Robl » Thu, 17 Jul 2003 20:48:14


Hi,
I have a windows 2000 domain with AD and my clients also are win 2000 pro
computers.
I think I might have done something wrong somewhere because now I cannot
install software on the win 2000 servers also when I am logged on as admin.
The strange thing is that I cannot remember doing something to restrict
certain software installation.

For example when I try to install VMWARE I get that restricting message, but
when I want to install NETIQ SQL software it goes trough.

I get this message : The system administrator has set policies to prevent
this installation.

Thanks,

Jerry

Have a look at the registry keys mentioned in
http://www.yqcomputer.com/ %3A%2F%2Fsupport.microsoft.com%2Fdefault.aspx%3Fscid%3Dkb%3Ben-us%3B227181&n=4&na=51&c=3&na=84&st=a&View=msdn&qu=MSI+policies+machine&qp=&qa=&qn=&c=3&s=4
to verify that the DisableMSI policy hasn't been set.

Here's one possibility, relating to installation of Norton Anti-Virus -
though it specifically refers to Windows XP.

Hi Matthew,
I cannot get through this link, it's given me the main site instead to
search.

Maybe you can copy and paste the page for me?Thanks

Jerry
