    When trying to install an application, you can get this error even if another installation isn’t running:

    ERROR_INSTALL_ALREADY_RUNNING

    1618 (0x652)
    Another installation is already in progress. Complete that installation before proceeding with this install.

    This is typically because an installation started but didn’t temrinate properly, and / or an installation is happening in the background.

    To fix this, cancel your install then go to the Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc) and terminate all MSIEXEC proccesses that are running. You should now be able to install your application without Windows complaining that another installation is already in progress.
