This issue affects mainly Enterprises that deploy software where the installation files and instructions are compiled into MSI files.

Microsoft has admitted that there’s a blanket error across many version of Windows 10, including 1809, 1803, 1709, 1703, and 1607.

The error is “Error 1309” when installing software using MSI or MSP format files.

Normally, the Error 1309 is considered to be because the installation doesn’t have the proper elevated rights to install…

It is possible that you have not run the setup program as an administrator; that is why it is showing error 1309. To fix error 1309, run the setup program as an administrator. First exit it, and right click the SETUP.EXE or INSTALL.EXE file, and select Run as Administrator option.

But, in the case of the affected Windows 10 versions, this is a bug.

Microsoft’s suggestion is literally…

Ignore the error. –¬†working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.
