How to solve “the system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation” 2012 r2

I was trying to install CrashPlan for a specific user so I could backup a network mapped drive, this sucked I think at least 10 hours of my life to figure this out:

1. Open ‘Local security Policy’ by running ‘Secpol.msc’ in the command line.

2. Go to – Local Policies -> Security Options.

3. On the right side scroll down to ‘User Account Control: run all Administrators in admin approval mode’.

4. Change the setting to ‘Disabled’.  (YES DISABLED!!!)

5. Restart the server. (Important)
