SCCM 2012 Applications deployment failed to install with error code (0X643) - Fatal Error during installation


Behavior: 
 
When the .msi file was run manually by double clicking on a system where the deployment has failed, it gave the error below.

"The advertised application will not be installed because it might be unsafe. Contact your administrator to change the installation user interface option of the package to basic"
 
 
 
 
Solution:
I was able to install the .msi file manually by supplying the /qb switch on the test machine. Hence I created the program to include the /qb switch and redeployed the package to the failed machines.
 
To resolve this issue, use the installation switch /qb (b-basic) on the command line when creating the program.
 
Eg., msiexec /i "abc.msi" /qb /norestart
