While installing LEAPWORK on a machine I get the message that the setup ended prematurely because of an error and the system has not been modified.
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 have added security default settings that may prevent the use of .msi (Microsoft Installer) files from running unless they are specifically executed as an administrator. Some workarounds include writing .bat files and/or .exe files to execute the .msi file and running those files as an administrator. Sometimes it is quicker and easier to simply launch the .msi file as an administrator by running the command prompt (cmd) as an administrator and executing the .msi file from the command line.
Use the "Search Program and Files" to get the cmd.exe option and right-click it to run it as an administrator.
Now you will be able to run any .msi file as an administrator from the command prompt. In this example, we are running the Download folder.
Command : "msiexec /i LEAPWORK_Release_x64_2020.1.1109.msi"
