During reading of the installed MSIs information, one of the MSIs is returning MsiEnumProducts is 19 : Which means  ERROR_WRITE_PROTECT (19 (0x13)) The media is write protected. So there could be some MSI which is not allowing the process to read the information. The index seems to be not incrementing properly causing the same MSI to read and going to infinite loop.
