    During a Windows Patch Remediation Job the following error is seen in the bldeploy logs :

      The same error can also be seen in the bldeploy logs while deploying a .msi installer 



    Another instance of msiexec may be running on the server



    Please check below:

      1. There may be a stuck msiexec process on the target which needs to be killed, open task manager, identify process id and terminate it 
      2. If a batch jobs with multiple deploy jobs is running in parallel then there can be multiple instance of msiexec running on system simultaneously. Please run the batch job sequentially to avoid these situtations.  
    3. A previous installation has completed, but required server to be rebooted to update registry keys, reboot the server and try again.
