ERROR 1925 while trying to install a WCF web service RRS feed

  • Question

  • Apologies if I've posted this issue in the wrong forum...

    Here is the background info

    • I have a windows Server 2008 r2 (64bit) virtual machine which has IIS7 installed.
    • The user I log in as has local admin rights.
    • We have created a WCF web service (32bit) and created an MSI for the service.
    • Application written in C# using .Net 3.5.1
    • I have configured the application pools in IIS7 to allow 32 bit applications to be run.
    When I run the web service installer, I get the following error message "You do not have sufficient privileges to complete this installation for all users of the machine. Log on as administrator and then retry this installation." The event viewer shows this as error 1925.

    If I right click, I don't have the option to "Run As Administrator" but I have tried running as a different user with no change.

    Can anyone help?

  • After much hunting and head scratching I've managed to fix the problem although I'm not sure why.

    From the command line I ran "msiexec /a <installer name>" and it worked!!!
