Install EXAplus and other packages on Windows with AppLocker policies enforced

      On Windows systems with AppLocker policies enforced, installing EXAplus or other client packages fails with the message "The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation." This is even the case with an user who is member of the Administrators group and default rules enabled, which grant Administrators the right to install MSI files.
      Apparently, AppLocker checks for administrator privileges before MSI can ask for privilege elevation.
      The workaround is to open a "Command Prompt (Admin)" and execute EXAplus-5.0.0.msi, either directly or as "msiexec /package EXAplus-5.0.0.msi".
      Alternatively, create an AppLocker rule that allows installation for ordinary users, optionally restricted to a specified directory.
