    When trying to install application, you get this error:

    The advertised application will not be installed because it might be unsafe

    The application gets marked as unsafe because the MSI has been created in a way that is designed to be deployed with an application deployment technology (such as advertised through AD or SCCM). As such, the application is meant to be installed in quiet mode (hidden from the user or without user input).

    Ideally, the application shou8uld be repackaged, but there is a workaround. The workaround is to install the application from the msiexec command line command with the /qb parameter as per the example below:

    msiexec /i application.msi /qb
