To change the machine policy to allow .MSI installers to be run from Windows Explorer, use the following steps:
- Click Start -> Run and enter gpedit.msc
- Click Local Computer Policy -> Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Installer.
- Select Disable Windows Installer and choose Edit policy setting:
- Click Enabled and choose Never from the Disable Windows Installer drop-down list:
- Click Apply
You might need to restart your Amazon Workspace for the changes to take effect, or you can run the following command: gpupdate /force
