error installing EMET 5 on Windows 7 "key not valid for use in specified state" RRS feed

  • Question

  • No - those other references do not answer the question.  However, this issue appears not to be EMET specific, but .MSI installer specific--i.e. other .MSI installs are failing on this machine with the same message...

    All of the references I have been able to find involve SQL or code-signing--I need to fix this issue on an end-user laptop attempting to install properly signed code--EMET 5, for example!
