Installer Fail on Windows 7 x64 (Ultimate, RTM)

Postby Bernard Sheppard » Fri Sep 04, 2009 7:32 am

The installer fails with a MSI Error code ???? (sorry, lost the screen cap by the time I'd fixed the problem, and I'm not going to uninstall just to repro :)

The installer by default offers to install into C:\\Program Files\\Red Gate\\SQL Dependency Tracker 2.

Asking the installer to install into C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Red Gate\\SQL Dependency Tracker 2 also fails.

However, creating an empty "SQL Dependency Tracker 2" directory under "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Red Gate\\" allows the installer to succeed.

Running the SQLToolbelt.exe installer 1.5.0.5

Hi Bernard,

Can I double check that this was a fresh install and not an upgrade? I am guessing it was a fresh install as it's Windows 7. I have performed a few test installs on Windows 7 and although it does specify Program Files as the installation folder it does actually install into Program Files (x86) successfully. What user was the Toolbelt installer being run as? A user in the Administrator group or the actual Administrator?

Thanks,

Both - Upgrade and New Install

I tried upgrading (The PC was upgraded from Vista to Win7).

I then uninstalled all of the Red Gate programs, and kicked off a new install.

Toolbelt was run as a user in the Administrator group, by right clicking, and choosing run as Administrator.
