The old MsiExec 2103 error…

Had a problem today performing an installation of an MSI from a scheduler that was failing due to “Error 2103: Could not resolve path for shell folder 26”. What the? That is certainly one very helpful error message! So after a chunk of googling I did manage to find some info, the relevant stuff as follows:

By default, all MSI commands run via MSIEXEC will be attempted to be installed on a “per-user” basis. This means that if Sally uses an MSI application, Fred should also install it to ensure it’s properly installed for him. Instead, you can specify that the package be installed “per computer” so that anyone who uses the application won’t have to go through the motion of installing it again. To that end, the MSIEXEC command can also be garnished with an “ALLUSERS=1” or “ALLUSERS=2” command as seen here:

msiexec /i \\server\share\package.msi ALLUSERS=1

If ALLUSERS is set to 1, the package will be set to run as a per-computer installation. This is only valid if the person performing the MSIEXEC command has administrative privileges on the computer.

If the ALLUSERS property is set to 2, a per-computer installation is attempted. If the user doesn’t have administrative rights, MSIEXEC falls back and then tries to
install the application as the user.

Thanks for the great info; this worked for me when attempting to install an MSI package remotely via Microsoft PSexec. Strangely, on some of the workstations, the ALLUSERS switch is not required, but on others it is. Anyway, thanks again!

I've been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.
