How to Perform a Administrative Installation for Microsoft Streets and Trips 2004 Software

I have this Microsoft Streets and Trips and would like to install it on my PC

But whenever I start installtion,  it initially comes up with a BIG message box and says

"You cannot install Microsoft Streets and Trips over a network unless you first perform an administrative installation."

and when I click Ok, it just finish the set up without installing anything to my PC.

I am logged as ADMINISTRATOR, so I dunno what it means by adminstrative installation and on top, I don't have any Network, just one computer hooked up to Cable internet modem.

Please help me in installing this Software. Thanks in Advance

If you have any questions then please let me know and I will answer you ASAP.

Is the software designed to be installed over a network?  Do they have a network version, versus a single desktop version?

I just figured it out and thought I would share.  Basically youhave to set this up as a network install.  You don't have to be on a network to do it though.  I setup the Administrative Install (instructions below) but instead of using a network drive I made a directory on a local dribe for it.  It basically copied the files to the new directory and made a new setup file. Once that was on there it installed perfectly.Also just as a side note.  If you are using long name directories then you must put the path in quotes i.e.  msiexec /a "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\data.msi".  email me if you need help.  I no how frustrated I was installing this.  gcreque@hotmail.com

Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER to start the Administrative Installation Wizard:

msiexec /a drive:\msmap\data.msi
where drive is the letter of your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.

The installation may seem very annoying it says administration installation so here is the

procedure to  follow.
First of all if you have the entire disc copied on to your harddrive let us thin they all

are copied to c:\trytemp
so you go to folder on C:\trytemp\Streets\MSMap  and see if you have data.msi.
so if you have go to command prompt and then go upto this folder like
C:\trytemp\Streets\MSMap   then there you type msiexec /a data.msi

it should read like this

C:\trytemp\Streets\MSMap>msiexec /a data.msi

then everything will fall in place just click OK. while installing it will ask for some more

files then you copy those files from the second CD and copy in the location it where it is

searching and retry then administration installation is over . now put the cd and run the

setup and then everything is done.
