Error 2105: Microsoft App-V Management Server Installation encountered an error…

So while trying to install APP-V 4.5 SP2 Management Server on a 2008 R2 SP1 x64 Host. I ran into a few issues. First I ran into the following: http://blogs.technet.com/b/appv/archive/2008/11/19/app-v-server-install-error-the-installation-program-was-unable-to-create-the-required-iis-virtual-directory.aspx which was basically a missing component in IIS. Then after correcting that I got farther in the Install but towards the end it would bomb with the following:

I tried removing .NET Frame work 4 from the Server which was a suggested fix on a few blogs. This did not work out for me. So I turned to my gold o’l buddy Procmon.

I ran a Process Monitor trace and I ran into a few access denied entries towards the end of the capture. Which lead me to think maybe it was elevation/permission related. I was running as a Domain Admin and UAC prompt was hitting the screen during install. I was running the Setup.MSI so I could monitor the log file etc. Finally it dawned on me to try an elevated Command Prompt with – MSIEXEC /I SETUP.MSI. This worked out and I was able to complete the Installation!! It was something silly and simple, but hope it helps somebody out when you exhaust all your options.
