Trying to install some software on my Windows Server 2003 standard server. (w/SP2)
Following error is occurring
Error 1260: Windows cannot open this program because it has been prevented by a software restriction policy.
For more information, open Event Viewer or contact your system Administrator.

When I check Application log in the Event Viewer the following error is logged...

As the administrator for my network, I am certain there aren't any software restriction policies in effect.
I've also ran the Group Policy Results Wizard... no software restriction policies are listed.

Any ideas?
