    I’m asking nicely! :-)
    I’ve encountered the same problem. Could you send me the solution?

    • Venkat says:

      Hi there,

      The issue is mainly caused due to lack permissions for the installer to create or edit files on the system, run the installer exe as an admin and also tune DEP settings.


  2. Jacek says:

    Hi Venkat,

    I tried this with admin permission and DEP is turned off for all data execution, except Windows programs and services.
    I also tried to turn it on and only to configure an exeption for this installer. Without positive effects.

    Maybe there is something more to “tune”?

    Got it:

    1. I turned the complete DEP of using “bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff”

    2. I configured Windows XP SP3 compatibility mode

    3. I started the installer as Administrator

    It didn’t work without step 2

    Thanks for your help!
