I experienced the playbook getting stuck if there's already a newer version of the software it's trying to install.
It would not move past installing software until I opened tasked manager and ended "Windows installer 32.exe".
It popped about 3 more times, and I ended task every time.
Suddenly the playbook moves on & finally finishes.
(The first time installing it on Windows 10 (22H2), I waited 20 minutes and it never moved. Then I decided to test it on Windows 11 (23H2), same issue, but I had a feeling of what was causing the issue so I guessed and killed the running installer.)
