    I keep getting this error when I try to install anything from web platform.

    "DownloadManager Information: 0 : Starting install sequence
    ThreadId=45
    DateTime=2020-02-16T11:05:55.6573250Z
    DownloadManager Error: 0 : Exception installing 'IIS-WindowsAuthentication'. Exception: System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception (0x80004005): The process creation has been blocked

    DownloadManager Information: 0 : Increasing current install to 2
    ThreadId=1
    DateTime=2020-02-16T11:05:55.6680746Z"

    Seems to be a permission issue of some sort, can this be fixed ?

    Am on Windows 10 home.

    Edit: If I use the command line installer then it works fine and I am able to install the same modules.

    Hi krylomaximus,

    I looked into the call stack and it seems that process activation has been blocked for some reason. Please try to disable firewall and anti-virus. Then run WPI as administrator.

    Best Regards,

    Hi Yuk,

    Thanks for the quick reply, It's being run from within the IIS MMC, I did run the IIS MMC as admin but it had no effect.
    Will try disabling the firewall and AV.

    Edit: It worked, I just ran it seperately, thanks again.
