A Referral Was Returned from the Server Error on Windows 10

Anyone have experience with this error and how to fix/get past it? The UAC security for only running digitally signed applications doesn't seem to affect it (enabled or disabled).

Thank you!

As an update and "solution" to this situation I wanted to reply with what I had to end up doing.

I had to end up creating a batch file to install a certificate before launching the installation. I used certutil.exe to install the certificate and overwrite it then start the installation. See below for info.

%WINDIR%\System32\certutil.exe -f -addstore root "%~dp0Certificate.cer"
set "filename=Setup.exe /V"/L*v install.log""
Start %filename%

This installs the certificate and then launches the installation with logging enabled.
