SCCM Console install failed because another program is installing (1618)

SCCM Console install failed because another program is installing (1618).

First of all you must open the ConfigMgrAdminUISetup.log in case of console install errors.

Open the log file with Configuration Manager Trace log tool. Examine the log file and you should see error(s) that will help you identify the reason for installation.

As you see the screenshot below in my case it was Installation failed because another program is installing (1618).

Below lines are from ConfigMgrAdminUISetup.log and look at the last line – Installation failed because another program is installing (1618). In addition to that I also saw the below two lines.

  • Cannot find MSPs
  • Cannot find ReportViewerLP_*s

This error is caused by multiple client .msi installation running at the same time. To sort this, you must stop all related MSI install process.
