Heyas,

I get this error message when trying to install this custom.msi. I'm running Windows 2012 on Hyper-V and I don't have any software restriction policies in place.  Any ideas would try the registry fix touted on web a lot http://msmvps.com/blogs/carlosq/archive/2011/08/28/quot-the-system-administrator-has-set-policies-to-prevent-this-installation-quot-on-windows-server.aspx. However this only works for Windows Server 2008.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Have you tried right clicking and run as administrator.

Or open command prompt as administrator and run from there.

You get the points by default for most comprehensive answer. Although the question was never resolved.
