When you use tools like Altiris or SCCM and you want to run scripts against Windows Server 2008, you need to disable a couple of things not to run into the Windows Installer scrolling window. The next GPO setting disables all the stuff that blocks these features:

[Hanging Windows Installer Coordinator]

A fix is available for this issue.

To disable this group policy:
1 ) Log on to the system with a User that has Administrative Privileges
2 ) Open the Windows Control Panel
3 ) Perform a search for Group Policy
4 ) The search results should display a link to the “Local Group Policy Editor”
5 ) Once inside the editor, go to:

  1. Computer Configuration
  2. Administrative Templates
  3. Windows Components
  4. Remote Desktop Services
  5. Remote Desktop Session Host
  6. Application Compatibility

6 ) In the right pane, right click on ‘Turn off Windows Installer RDS Compatibility” and select Edit from the drop down menu
7 ) Select the Radio Button labeled ‘Enable’
8 ) Click OK
