Can't install MSI program... "The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation

HP Recommended
Stream
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

HP Stream Laptop running Win10. 

 

Can't install AcuRite-PC-CONNECT.MSI program... get the error message: "The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation"

 

This is a PC at home on my own network. I am already classified as an administrator. Also can't access the command prompt or access a "run as administrator" choice with  right-click. Have no problem running this program on the other computers on my network. 

 

HELP!!!

This is third-party software.

 

https://support.acurite.com/hc/en-us

 

In general, your security software might be preventing the access.

Open your security software to see if you need to "allow" downloading / installing the software.

 

Contact the software website for help.

Perhaps, but there is no protecting software on the laptop that did not come with the HP hardware, a Network Administrator restriction is not defined by third party software (protective or otherwise), and there is no problem installing this software on other, non-HP machines. 

 

How can I disable the "Network Administrator" (as well as access the command prompt) on this HP machine?

OK.

I do not recommend doing so;

The information you seek is freely available on the Internet.

 

The first suggestion, that of shutting off the UAC, is at least easily reversible.

 

The System Administrator has set policies to prevent this installation error in Windows 10 

 

If you do not care for the ideas / suggestions in that article, there are others.

Search for "The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation"
