after formating my laptop i wanted to reinstall the program but it still give me this error
Could you maybe share the log file?
MSI465f.LOG - Google Drive
Thank you. Could you double check if nothing is blocking your access to this location:
The logs indicate an issue around that.
No nothing blocked
it is weird actually I managed to get a bit older version 21.4.4 I downloaded in the past and it worked just fine! until it is updated automatically to the newer version, maybe the newer version has some problem idk!
Could you maybe try running the installer as an administrator?
yes that’s the first thing I would do with any installer, and that would be the second weird thing as you can see there is no option to do it
but on the older version, it’s there
maybe it’s the .msi thing instead of .exe?
Indeed, my bad.
Could you still maybe verify that you don’t have any software / policies that would sandbox the installer, preventing it from writing into this location?
nope nothing preventing it it’s a fresh windows install
ok as i expected it was about the ( .msi ) extension
so here is the solution
fire up the Registry Editor by pressing Windows + R and typing “regedit” into the Run dialog.
Once it appears, locate this key:
Then, add a new key under
shell and rename it
runas . Edit the “(Default)” parameter of
runas and type in
Run as &administrator .
Now, create a new key under
command and change its “(Default)” parameter to contain
msiexec /i "%1" .
And you’re done! When you right-click a Windows Installer executable, you’ll now see the “Run as administrator” option.
