I have recently encountered a Windows error message “Installation Directory must be on a local hard drive”. The installation package seems to not having permissions to access the hard drive to proceed the tasks such as creating new folder, copying files to such folder, and configuring Windows registry.
Jul 13, 2016 If you have shortcut icon on your desktop you can right click it and select “properties” and the installation folder path should be in the box “target” you can copy this path on a folder or in the “run” box to open it just delete the last part of.
This problem is known as MSI Installer problem. For some reasons, when you have this error message, the only way to do is to use your Administrative privileges.
How to do it without “Run as administrator” option?!?!?!
There’s a way, there’s a will…
Oracle client software version 8.1 7 or greater free. On your remote machine, System.Data.OracleClient need access to some of the oracle dll which are not part of.Net. Solutions: Install Oracle Client, and add bin location to Path environment varaible of windows OR; Copy oraociicus10.dll (Basic-Lite version) or aociei10.dll (Basic version), oci.dll, orannzsbb10.dll and oraocci10.dll from oracle client installable folder to bin folder of.
First of all, try to clean your Temp folder where all the temporary files for any installation are stored. To go to that directory, the quickest way is to use RUNFocus t25 free utorrent latest. program.
Have you heard of RUN program? You can either press Windows + R for all Windows versions prior Windows 8.
For Windows 8, you press Windows button and then type RUN. Windows 8 search engine will find it for you.
Now, type in RUN program %Temp%. (It is not case sensitive, so you can type in capital or lower case your choice)
Windows Explorer will bring you to Temp folder, you can select all and hit DELETE.
Done with that, let’s move to the main part.
Follow these few steps to install your program under “Administrative privileges mode”
For example, my path to my LAN Access Control.msi is such above. So I type as following
MSIexec /i “C:LAN Access Control.msi”
Trying to install an application from an MSI installer you may face this error, that “Installation directory must be on a local hard drive”! Even if you create manually yourself the installation directory on any of your local drives, this error message persists!
When you right click the installer to run it “as administrator”, you receive another error message, that “This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel.”!!!
To fix this issue: open the Command Prompt as administrator and write the command msiexec /i followed by the path to your installer. For instance, let’s say you are installing File Converter. First, copy the path to the installer, then in the command prompt window write:
This will run the MSI installer of your program without errors. If not, to the command above add also this direction: WIXUI_DONTVALIDATEPATH=1. It now becomes:
