Policy setting preventing *.msi file install on Win 2003 serv. std.

I have a little problem, I have Windows 2003 Std. server, and I'm trying to install *.msi files manually and every time I get this msg.

"The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation."

This is stand alone server, it is not part of any domain, it acts as a web server. Could any one tell me where I should go to allow this to install? I login as a administrator of this server so I was assuming that I should have all the rigths but i tell me that i do not. Hmm...any suggestions? Thanks.

Hmm, so there is no chance, such a policy exists?
If no, try to change the GUID of that msi package, this can be done using orca from here: http://download68.mediafire.com/l5cir07lpg8g/1nk9o5t353o/Orca.zip
In the property section there is a value called ProductCode, change the value by changing a single digit.
Otherwise, Google has plenty of suggestions: http://www.google.com/search?q=%22The+system+administrator+has+set+policies+to+prevent+this+installation%22&sourceid=ie7&rls=com.microsoft:en-US&ie=utf8&oe=utf8

see http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Q_21539332.html and http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324036

for troubleshooting, you can (1) run policy results wizard for the installation in question in GP management console; (2) look in the log file of the installation, usually %temp%\MSI*.LOG

...since this is with all packages, most likely it's caused by the setting Disable Windows Installer Group Policy (Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Installer)

If this is 2003 domain you will also want to check if software restriction policies are in place
