Zone errors during Nintex Workflow 2010 update

Recently I have done a Nintex Workflow update from 2.3.7.0 to 2.3.13.0 (May 8, 2014). During the installation I encountered a few errors. I would like to share this with you and also how I solved this problem.

The error was in both cases: “The Zone of the assembly that failed was: MyComputer”

The errors that appeared after running Nintexworkflow2010.msi (account is local admin and is also allowed to install SharePoint solutions):

nw_error1

and

nw_error2

Some more cmd windows popup after this, but the Farm solutions page is not opened automatically (which should and indicates a correct install). Also the solutions did not show todays date for Last Operation Time. So something had gone wrong.
The command prompts in which the solutions are deployed are “normal” command prompts. I always use elevated prompts so I thought the problem had to do something with the elevation level.

To get a correct installation I did:
start cmd prompt with “run as administrator”
Go to dir with nintexworkflow2010.msi
Run with “msiexec /i nintexworkflow2010.msi”

Now the installation will proceed like intended:

nw_correct

At the end the solutions page will be opened.

After also updating the database to 2.0.2.0 the installation is completed.
