I have a slight issue with my laptop. Every time I try to run any sort of a .msi installer to install a application, the status freezes and no progress progresses.


I know it is not just the installer because I have tried different .msi installers. I have also run different types of installers though and these seem to work. Help! Thanks!

  • 1. Is it a complete stoppage, or just a long pause (usually while the system tries to make a Restore Point)? 2. Could it be a UAC issue, such as being unable to see a popup requesting authorization (check UAC settings)? See blogs.msdn.com/b/hyperyash/archive/2012/07/18/… to turn it off, but only do so temporarily. – DrMoishe Pippik Mar 17 '15 at 0:20

Thank you everyone for your help on solving my issue :)

I had to resort to reinstalling my Windows 8.1 Operating System after searching endlessly online to no avail. My computer has no more issues with the MSIExec now and I hope it doesn't have any more in the future.

Once again, Thanks ;)
