Access Denied Exception while running MSI file

When you download a MSI file or any other file that has been blocked it will have limited capabilities until you unblock it.

For example, a Microsoft® Word document that has been downloaded and blocked can be opened in Word, but the document will be opened in Protected Mode or as a Read Only document.

To Unblock a Downloaded File

  1. Locate the blocked file.
  2. Right-click on the file and select Properties from the menu.
  3. Click Unblock on the General tab.
  4. Click OK.


NOTE: If you do not see the Unblock option in the Properties dialog box, then the file has not be blocked by Windows.

After unblocking a downloaded file, the file will no longer have limited capabilities.
