Hi Kafuller


t looks like you're trying to install the Workspace app on a non-domain joined PC. Is it a user's home PC?

And you're using an account tat's a member of the local administrator's group?

Have you disabled the Antivirus on the PC first?

Looking at the log file, it looks like it's done all the checks, then it tries to run the extracted exe PackageInstaller.exe but failing


10:35:43: Information - CInstallationManager::InstallPackage(3826) - Extracted Location found: C:\Users\Josh Alcedo\AppData\Local\Temp\Ctx-1A1A47E0-1518-4A28-883F-33FD4E020B4A\Extract\\PackageInstaller.exe /silent /norestart /l C:\Users\Josh Alcedo\AppData\Local\Temp\CTXReceiverInstallLogs-20200413-103520\CtxInstall-PackageInstaller-20200413-103543.log
10:35:43: Information - CInstallationManager::InstallPackage(3852) - Failed at creating process to install PackageInstaller PackageInstaller.exe, With Error Code : 193


I've known so AVs that block executables from running from AppData sub-folders. Also, security processes like AppLocker if configured would also block this. Does the PC have any such programs/processes enabled?

Hi Kafuller,

Could you please try the following Workaround


Manually install latest VC Redist (https://support.microsoft.com/en-in/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads both 32 bit and 64 bit), then they will by-passing the pre-requisite installation process and proceed with the CWA installation.







This ended up working for them. Thank you so much for the suggestion
