I am trying to install VSE on Server 2016 with Ansible. Every time I launch the setup, it seems to spawn a child uninstall process. I am able to see this by analyzing the wait chain for SetupVSE.exe. If I log in to the system, and I end the process on the uninstall, VSE installs with no issues.
Side note, I do not have this issue with Server 2012 R2.
Side Note 2. If I install manually on the Server 2016 system it completes successfully. I just run the same command manually I run with Ansible,
I have disabled UAC. The Mcafee agent install also works on Server 2016.
I am not familiar with Ansible , does it run as a system account or a service account?
What command are you running?
My thought is that the use of Ansible might be resulting in a "trust" issue. If our installer sees untrusted injection it may result in an install failure. But it seems this is a hang. Contacting support would be a good way to proceed if additional assistance is needed.I'd expect they will want a procmon log while replicating the failure, along with the install logs.
