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”

  1. Locate your installation file and remember the path to it.
    Let’s say I copy my installation file to C drive and its name is “LAN Access Control.msi“. So, the path to it is “C:LAN Access Control.msi”
  2. Press Windows key to bring up the menu, and then type cmd
  3. A tiny black DOS icon will show up in your search box. Now, right-click on that and choose Run as administrator
  4. Now you are using Command Prompt in Administrator mode. All you have to do is to run MSIexec command MSIexec /i [path to the installation program]

    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”

  5. Press Enter and you can start installing your program

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:
