  • Question

  • Hi Guys,

    I am getting the below error while uninstalling a software from add&remove program.

    "The System Administrator Has Set Policies to Prevent This Installation".

    1. I tried all the steps in http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-security/error-the-system-administrator-has-set-policies-to/b5350e90-fe4b-4544-8549-20c6a7befb51

    2.

    "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer

    Data Type: REG_DWORD
    Value: 0
    Name: DisableMSI"

    3.

    executed the command "net user administrator /active:yes"

    and rebooted machine couple of times after updating the group policy(gpupdate /force) but no luck. 

    can you guys suggest anything else. 

    OS: Windows Server 2012 R2
