Troubleshooting Information

If the MSI Exec command indicates that a previous version is installed or failed please ensure the following:

  1. User has Administrative privileges on the system (Required to make registry changes)
  2. Print Audit Services and processes are not running (Requires the Print Audit 6 Entry to be removed from msconfig startup list; Client Helper service should be disabled as well through services.msc)
  3. Command prompt has been run as an administrative user (May be required in OS's with UAC enabled; Right click on cmd.exe and click "Run as Administrator")

To use this in a batch file or with Active Directory Group Policy, the msiexec command is:

msiexec /qn /x {registry key as above}
