Hi,

We've tried to install Windows Admin Center on a few servers and the .msi file always shows the same error,

This is not happening for a Windows 10 computer.

All of them are in the same domain and even we've disabled the AV for testing with the same result.

Thank you.

    The problem appears when trying to install the Windows Administration Center on a non-English version of Windows (in my case the Spanish). I solved it by forcing to install the Windows Administration Center in the US language:

    msiexec -i WindowsAdminCenter2110.2.msi productLanguage="1033"

    Make sure the "Windows installer service" is enabled and running.

    If the Error persists, try to re-register the service.

    May want to ask here in dedicated admin center forums.
