    1. Disable Windows Installer (All Windows)
    This restriction allows you to prevent users from adding and removing software applications with Windows Installer.

    Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value called 'DisableMSI' using the settings below.

    System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer]
    Name: DisableMSI
    Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
    Value: (0 = default, 1 = admin only, 2 = disabled)

    2. Remote Administration of Windows Installer (Windows 2000/XP)
    This setting allows administrators using Windows Terminal Services to remotely install and configure software using Windows Installer.

    Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value called 'EnableAdminTSRemote' using the settings below.

    Note: This setting affects system administrators only. Other users cannot install programs remotely.

    System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer]
    Name: EnableAdminTSRemote
    Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
    Value: (0 = disable, 1 = enabled)

    3. Windows Installer Logging (All Windows)
    Windows Installer can use logging to help assist in troubleshooting issues with installing software packages. You can enable verbose logging with this setting.

    Create a new string value called "Logging" and set it to a combination of the letters below to enable the logging options. A value of "voicewarmup" will enable all the logging options.

    Letter Option
    v Verbose output
    o Out-of-disk-space messages
    i Status messages
    c Initial UI parameters
    e All error messages
    w Non-fatal warnings
    a Start up of actions
    r Action-specific records
    m Out-of-memory or fatal exit information
    u User requests
    p Terminal properties
    + Append to existing file
    ! Flush each line to the log

    The next time Windows Installer is used a log will be created.

    Note: Windows Installer will store the logs in the TEMP directory. The filename is random, but begins with the letters "Msi" and end with a .log extension.

    System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer]
    Name: Logging
    Type: REG_SZ (String Value)
