This installation is forbidden by system policy. contact your system administrator

Method 1 :
1. Click Start on the Windows taskbar, and then click Run.
2. On the Run window, type gpedit.msc, and then click OK.
3. On the Group Policy window, navigate to Local Computer Policy, then Computer Configuration, then Administrative Templates, then Windows Components, and then Windows Installer.

Method 3:
start > run regedit
Browse the registry to HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer
Create: DisableMSI Type: REG_DWORD value = 0 (0 should allow you to install it was originally 1)
(In my case the value had been set to 2 so I changed it to 0)

Method 4

I don't find the product in both of below paths.

Registry Path
HKCR\Installer\Products......\product name
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Installer\Products....\


Also check on all windows installer services.

I finally found (part of) the solution!!!! Re: the error...Apparently I was not installing the correct driver for the network adapter on my laptop. This error is received when the driver does not match the hardware on the PC/laptop...
After an exhausting search to fix my network/internet connection, I broke down and paid for technical support from the laptop manufacturer. Turns out my card was bad. Of course, my laptop is out of warranty, so rather than pay them $200+ to replace the card or attempt to install one myself (internally), I purchased a "wifi dongle" for $16 on Amazon. It plugs into an external USB port and works perfectly!
I hope this helps someone not spend 3+ days trying to resolve the problem like I did!

Your network policy prevents you from downloading and installing driver files. You need to contact your network administrators to help you. Method 1 is the correct approach but network policy overrides local policy. If you don't have permissions to install the driver file then you likely don't have permission to make the changes to allow you to do so anyway.

Are you sure the driver you downloaded is actually a valid driver from Intel and not a hacked version? Have you verified the signature?

Are you running Windows in developer mode? Search for "Developer Settings" if yo don't know how to do that.

@RaviPadol-0680
Hi,
Is your PC on a domain or added to a server domain like in a workplace?
If not, try going to Start > Run, type in gpedit.msc and press OK. Go to Computer Configuration > Administrative templates > System > Device Installation > Device Installation Restrictions.

In here are loads of different settings which apply to installation of new devices, make sure they are all set to "not configured" apart from the very first one which says "Allow administrators to override restrictions" etc.

Hope above information can help you.
