AccountRight Server Edition 2017.1.1 looping on please wait for first use

I'm trying to install AccountRight server edition 2017.1.1 on a server and it's just looping on "Please wait while the application is preparing for the first use". The progress bar fills and then empties over and over. It's been going for about 4 hours so far.

 

Is there another installer or some way to get past this?

Re: AccountRight Server Edition 2017.1.1 looping on please wait for first use

Had this issue on Server 2008R2 and Server 2016. Installation was successful after disabling Windows Installer RDS Compatibility in Group Policy.

 

Steps required:

1. Run gpedit.msc and navigate to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Session Host > Application Compatibility

2. In the right pane, click Turn off Windows Installer RDS Compatibility.

3. In the Turn off Windows Installer RDS Compatibility window, select Enabled.

4. You may also need to execute gpudate /force in a command window.

 

Now run the AccountRight installer again.
