Hello all As a new member, I am we ran into a problem and stuck with this below message on the Server while installing/uninstalling any software... "Another program is being installed. Please wait until that installation is complete, and then try to install the software again" with Windows Server 2012 R2. I am searching online but no luck yet. Any advise would be appreciated.

Hi,

Thanks for posting in Q&A platform.

Please try to stop the Windows Installer Service first, it may be caused by windows is installing updates in the backgroud.

And here is a similar thread and articles discussed before, kindly check if methods in them are helpful:

Windows Installer always says “Another program is being installed”

FIX: Another program is being installed… Installer error

Might check for and delete
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\InProgress

then reboot.
