Errors 2502 & 2503 When Installing MSIs

by JukEboX   Last Updated October 10, 2019 19:00 PM

I am trying to install a number of items that are MSI files from Microsoft suchs as SQLTypeCLRs.msi and SharedComponents.msi for SQL Server. When I try and install these I get errors 2502 & 2503 and it fails with a call runtime error. If I open a Command Prompt in Administrator mode and then start the MSI from that command line then it will run as adminsitrator. It's almost as though it doesn't try to access UAC. And you can't right click and click "Run As Administrator" on the file. Is there a way to fix this so it runs MSIs as Administrator so I don't keep getting these errors? I am getting this on my 2 Windows Server 2016 boxes.

I am simply tryihg to install new software that comes to me as MSIs and not EXEs.

Error 2503.Called RunScript when not marked in progress.

Error 2502.Called InstallFinalize when no install in progress.
