Installer Returned Error Code 87

4/26/2018 10180 Contributors

Error 87 is a standard error message from Windows Installer. The actual message string is ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER. This simply means that an invalid parameter was passed to the installer. This can happen if an unknown parameter ( AKA command line argument) is passed to the installer.

Verify that the parameters you defined in your Parameters field are correct. The first thing I do is run the install file LOCALLY on my machine and I pass the /? argument. Most installation files will show a Usage window. If that doesn't work (instead of contacting the vendor I just recommend using Google)
