Error Message

Figure 1 - Install or Ugrade process of System Recovery 18 Service Pack 3 / 4 or System Recovery 21

Figure 2 - Update process of System Recovery 18 SP3 or SP4

Cause

When DNS servers for IPv4 are not set on the machine, this issue occurs because the registration for dll files does not complete. Or even if DNS servers are set, a network cable is not connected.

Solution

If you experience either Figure 1 or Figure 2, please cancel by the below steps.

0. Connect a network cable, and connect to a network hub or switch.

1. Press "Cancel". (See Figure 3)

Figure 3

2. Open Task manager.

3. Find msiexec.exe which username is SYSTEM and memory usage is the lowest one in all msiexec.exe. (See Figure 4)

Figure 4

4. Right-click the msiexec.exe and select [End task].

5. Install or update process will start rolling back as soon as the msiexec.exe terminates, and the cancel operation completes.

6. Try to install or update again after setting a preferred DNS server for IPv4 as 127.0.0.1 on the network configuration. (See Figure 5)

Warning: This action should only be done by an experienced administrator. As changing these values on Domain Controllers, DNS servers or any software application servers may prevent the operating system or installed software applications like AD, DNS, any software application, etc. from functioning properly.

NOTE: step 6 is a temporary measure in order for the installation to complete successfully. The DNS settings can be removed after installation has completed.
