When installing ADDM Agent V1, the installation stops at 87% and setup cannot be terminated.

The Microsoft Installer is used for the ADDM installation setup. MS Installer requires certain DCOM settings.

The DCOM settings are reached as follows:
Start -> Run : dcomcnfg

The following settings under Default Properties are required:
- Enable Distributed COM on this Computer - activated (check mark is set)
- Default Authentication Level: Connect
- Default Impersonation Level: Identify

Terminate the setup via the Task Manager, make the DCOM settings as described above, reboot the system and then restart the setup.
