Installing GoFileRoom on Server 2016 Remote Desktop Session Host and during install it hangs on the window titled Windows Installer Coordinator and the message is please wait while the application is preparing for the first use.

To resolve this, I modified Group Policy for the Remote Desktop Services Host Application Compatibility

I set the following to Enable:
