When I try to upgrade the Universal installer to splunkforwarder-9.0.1-82c987350fde-x64-release.msi the install process hangs. But finally it went on.

Iám looking for a workaround for tese warnings on my Windows Forwarder.

IMO, all of those messages can be ignored.  Remove the --debug option to get rid of most of them.  The rest point to omissions Splunk made when delivering apps with the forwarder.  It's not on you to fix them.
