There are several articles about the error message „The profile for the user is a temporary profile.“ but mostly specific to special programs. If you receive this message while installing an msi package you might be lost?

The message itself states that the user installing uses a temporary profile but this might not be true. First check the profile type of the user you are trying to install the application with. If it is a „Mandatory“ or „ReadOnly“ profile you can mostly easily change this within the Systems user profiles settings.


Just click on „Change Type…“ and choose „Local profile“.


Log off and on again and you should be good to go.
