Windows Error 0×80040707 - Caused by InstallShield and Windows SP2 DEP

From Windows 95 to Windows XP & Vista the “Unhandled Exception
0×80040707′ error message, pictured below, typically occurs during the
installation or update of PC software. The error code is typically
associated with the installation program InstallShield, which software
vendors wrap around their own software packages so they can install to
Windows without interferring with existing software. The error was
typically associated with the paths to Shell folders in Windows (ie:
the Desktop, Programs, and Startup Menu folders in a user’s or the “All
Users” profiles) - there is a detailed description of changing or
recreating these paths at InstallShield’s site.
The 0×80040707 error code has become more common recently, as the Data
Execution Prevention (DEP) controls (screenshot link) installed by
Windows XP SP2 also interfere with InstallShield’s operations and can
block its access to the Windows shell folders mentioned earlier. If
your shell folder paths are all correct, the likely culprit of the
error is Windows’ DEP and these steps should resolve the issue:
Find the primary installation file for the program you were installing.
If it’s not a single-file installer it’s usually “setup.exe” on a CD,
but you can either check the AUTORUN.INF file to see what program it’s
calling or dig through the folders on the CD (/bin/, /eng/, and
/driver/ are common folders where the true installer program is nested
when the setup.exe is just a fancy GUI program).
Right-click the installation program and select “Run As…”. If it
doesn’t show up the then file may not be an executable > start over
at step #1 and look for other files.
Uncheck the “Protect My Computer And Data From Unauthorized Activity”
box, this deactivates DEP for this executable and its child processes,
and click the “OK” button.
