Installer UI Mode Error

Error:
Installer UI Mode Error
Installer User Interface Mode Not Supported

The installer cannot run in this UI mode. To specify the interface mode. Use the -i command-line option, followed by the UI mode identifier. The valid UI modes identifiers are GUI, Console, and Silent.


Solution:
Right Click on EXE file and go to Properties > Compatibility and change the compatibility mode to Windows 7 or Older

Recommendation:
1- Most of time you can find exe files in Temp Directory. For find Windows Temp Directory go to 
-Temp Directory: C:\Users\[USER NAME]\AppData\Local\Temp
-Temp Directory: go to Run (WinKey + R) and type %temp% and press Enter

2- Checked the Run this program as an administrator in Compatibility window.

hi!
thx for your recommendation
but...

it was not useful in my situation (with Win 8.1 Enterprise)
but I decided it: just have chosed launch with previous version of Win. (Win. 7) and it really works)

thx!
