    I am trying to install Netflicks Movie Veiwer and got the "The system
    administrator has set policies to prevent this installation" message. I read
    thru all the post and followed instructions on how to disable Windows
    Installer and it's still a no go. Here is the kicker. My wife installed it
    with no problem on her machine! I use Vista Ultimate, she has Vista Premium.
    Any suggestions?
    P.S. Is this one of the issues Microsoft will fix in the comming SP1?

  2. Hello davidoncoast,

    I f you disable the installer you can't install software that ends with .msi.
    So enable the service and maybe you have to use the RUN AS function to install

    what if you try starting the setup by right-clicking the program and
    selecting "Run as administrator"?
    For the second, I don't think that this should be of concern for a fix.

    Hope this will help you.

    The install file does not have a RUN AS function and I tried all the
    different settings in the Group Policy Object Editor for the Windows
    Installer setting. No luck. Help!
