Error installing Reactive Extensions: Please wait while the installer finishes determining your disk space requirements

May 10, 2010 adglopez 2 comments

Today I was trying to install Reactive Extensions for .NET (Rx) on my Virtual Machine and got this error:

Please wait while the installer finishes determining you disk space requirements.

Searching a bit I found solutions for similar situations with MSI installers, the workaround is using command line and msiexec (http://bloggingabout.net/blogs/harold/archive/2009/01/14/windows-installer-doesn-t-finish-determining-disk-space-requirements.aspx).

Since in this case it is a .exe my solution was to run it from Windows PowerShell and it worked.

Here is a sample:

powershell C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\Rx_Net35_SP1.exe

Hope this helps.
