Issue:
Orion product may not install due to Windows Software Restriction Policies. I am receiving a message similar to the following:
“The installation of %1 is not permitted by software restriction policy.
The Windows Installer only allows installation of unrestricted items. The authorization level returned by software restriction policy was %2 (status return %3).”

Resolution:
To verify that software restriction policies are currently set:

  1. Click Start > Programs > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy.
  2. In the navigation pane, expand Security Settings, and then expand Software Restriction Policies.
  3. Review the current software restriction policies.


Perform the following to prevent Software Restriction Policies from applying to Local Administrators:

  1. Click Start, click Run, type mmc, and then click OK.
  2. Open Software Restriction Policies.
  3. In the details pane, double-click Enforcement.
  4. Under Apply software restriction policies to the following users, click All users except local administrators.
  5. After rebooting, enter the following command in a command window:
    gpupdate /force
