Popup that doesn’t go away: please wait while the installer finishes determining your disk space requirements

9 03 2010

Recently, while preparing a fresh set of development virtual machines, I started getting a popup window with the message “please wait while the installer finishes determining your disk space requirements”. This happened every time I tried to install a msi. apparently this is a bug with the msi engine. A workaround that did the trick was to on the command line and execute the following command:

msiexec /package .msi /qr

I’ll try to add some more information on the problem itself ASAP.

Cheers,

Rui
