Did you ever figure out how to get around this? I've seen this when uninstalling/installing an application called ArcGIS (specifically when upgrading from version 9.2 to 9.3). The uninstall always locks up when unregistering DLLs (and installing the new version locks up when registering DLLs). If you re-run the uninstall/install, the lock ups don't happen on the same files (which makes me think that it's not purposely being blocked by the IPS).
If you disable the host IPS on the machine, everything works like it's supposed to with no lock ups.
Yes. We had to exclude the Microsoft Installer application from under the following location:
My personal option is the problem is actually a flaw in HIPS as nothing is logged in regards to this blocking behavior that's been seen on more than one of our msi-based applications. Excluding the msi engine from protection cured the problem in our environment.
Let me know if that makes sense or not. happy
I won't be able to try this until Thursday, but thanks! I'm pretty sure our HIPS admin will know how to add the exclusion based on the picture.
