When installing Azure CLI tool on Windows 10 or 11 directly via Windows installer, you may encounter this error - cannot find the path specified. 


Azure CLI requires Administrator permission when installing. You can follow these steps to fix the above error.

  1. Go to the folder that contains your downloaded Azure CLI installer. For example, azure-cli-2.43.0.msi.
  2. Click File in the menu and then click Open Windows PowerShell -> Open Windows PowerShell as administrator.
  3. In the opened PowerShell terminal, run the downloaded msi file like the following screenshot shows:
  4. Follow the installer to complete the setup.

Once the installation is completed, you can type command az version in any terminal to verify:

az --version
