I'm receiving this pop-up when running an MSI from a server. According to this post I found, http://itninja.com/question/flash8-remote-install-issue&mpage=1&key=open%2Cfile%2Csecurity%2Cwarning&#13685, the issue is with Windows XP with SP2 and trusted sites. I attempted to add the server to the trusted sites but I'm still prompted with the security warning. The odd thing is not all of my MSI return these errors. The two I'm having issues with right now are Adobe Shockwave 11.msi and Install Flash Player Active X.msi. Has anyone come across this and/or know a resolution?

it sounds stupid, but we had this problem and I think adding the path to %windir%\system32\msiexec.exe at the beginning of the command line overcomes this.
But I never did figure out why the trusted sites behaved so stupidly.

Depending on from where you copied/download the file it may be classified as unsafe.
Right-click the file, select properties and click Unblock in that case.

You beat me to it! I took a closer look at the MSI yesterday and, after unblocking it, the security warning no longer came up. I know this is a SP2 issue, but why does it do it on some MSIs but not others? Is it because, as you said, where it's saved to? I believe it was saved to a share on a server and run from there.

Is the server included in the "trusted zone"?

I did add it but was still prompted with the Security Warning dialog box.
