  • I'm curious as to when, exactly, you get the error message.  Does it happen shortly after running the setup program, or during one of the installation steps, like preparing Active Directory?

  • Very shortly after I start the install

  • You are going to need to provide more detail.  Does clicking deployse or deployee launch the Installation screen?

  • I am trying to install from the .msi of the trial edition.  It starts up the Windows Installer then errors out with the message.

  • Trying to install the Standard edition, the error is " The systems administrator has set policies to prevent this installation"
    I am the Admin ...  No policies are in place .... I have changed the local policy

  • Hi
    Please ensure below firstly
    Local Computer Policy/ computer configuration/ administrator templates/ windows components/ windows installer..........select "disable windows installer". and check it is not enabled.
    Or you can use the tool below
    Do you use the administrator or other account which is member of the administrator?  Please ensure the user was configured properly.
    How about you install the ocs by the domain administrator (with the schema and enterprise administraor).
