Trying to install BESRMS_9_0_HF_1.msi manually and it fails with an error saying you can only run this msi install package from the Symantec Installation Manager.

Solution



Normallly, this file is only handled by the Symantec Installation Manager. To run this outside of that, do the following:

1. Open a DOS window

2. Navigate to the location of the msi package

3. Use skipaim=1 as a switch.

For example, if the msi package is located at C:\, the command line would be:

C:\BESRMS_9_0_HF_1.msi skipaim=1

4. Press Enter.


The msi package will successfully install.
