Resharper 7.1.3 installation error

So I need the latest resharper because I stupidly installed VS2012 Update 2, which broker test runner.

I downloaded 7.1.3 installer (ReSharperSetup.7.1.3000.2254.msi) but it fails to run with the following Windows Installer error:

The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation

I turned on windows installer logging and I get the following log:

I am running Windows Server 2008R2.

I have tried modifying my local group policies for Windows Installer to no avail.

Many thanks for any help.

Hi Tom,

Basically, this error means that your domain security policy does not allow end-users to run MSI installation files. I've googled this error message and found an msdn article about it:

Hope it helps.
