The install shield doesn't finish working

I get the message "This installation cannot be run by directly launching the MSI package. You must run setup.exe." I already did that when I inserted the disc. Am I missing something on my computer to finish the installation process?

Dear! First of all uninstall its software or driver and take a reboot.

Now run setup.exe without attach the web cam with computer.

Attach the web cam if required during installation otherwise later after installing its software or driver.

Computer detect a new device as a web cam and hook up its driver automatically.

After installation complete, you should a reboot manually if it does not require.

After take a reboot check your cam, it will work perfectly.


Good Luck

Try copying the files on the disc to a folder and run them from there. Open the folder you saved the files in then double click the setup.exe icon and see if it completes the installation. If that does not work then try downloading the files from the radio shack web site.

Hi
  1. Insert your Windows 2000 CD into your computer's CD drive.
  2. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to "Valueadd\3rdparty\Mgmt\Winstle\Swiadmle.msi" on the Windows 2000 CD.
  3. Double-click the MSI file to install the Veritas Software Console. Specify an installation location that will be accessible by the clean PC creating the installation package.
  4. Navigate to the file named "Discoz.exe" in the WINStall folder, then double-click this file to execute the Discover tool.
  5. Click the "Before" snapshot and select the clean PC. Click "OK." Discover will take a snapshot of the clean PC before installation of the third-party application.
  6. Install the third-party application onto the clean PC and reboot the computer. Run the newly installed application on the PC to ensure that installation was successful. Quit the program, once verified.
  7. Launch the Discover application.
  8. Click the "After" snapshot option, and select the PC again. Click "OK." Discover will take a snapshot of the PC after the installation of the third-party application. In doing so, all data that has changed is recorded and compiled into an MSI file. This data includes files, registry entries and edits to settings necessary to install the application.
Lastly
Copy the MSI file to another computer and test the installation package by installing the software.

Hi there!
There can be several reasons why you are getting this error message. First, make sure that your user account is an administrator account. If you are sure that your account is an admin, follow this steps:
1. Choose Run from the Start menu. type %Temp% and click OK. delete all files inside the temp directory 3. Click again on run from start menu. Type cmd and hit Enter. 3. Drag iTunesSetup.exe from the Desktop into the C:\\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe window. 4. Add a space and then this text: /extract %TEMP% 5. Press return/enter. This will extract three Windows installer packages into your TEMP directory. 6. Navigate back to your TEMP directory. 7. Launch the AppleSoftwareUpdate Windows Installer Package. Complete the installation. 8. Launch the QuickTime Windows Installer Package. Complete the installation. 9. Launch the iTunes Windows Installer Package. Complete the installation.
Please reply if this will not fix the problem. Cheers!

Give me unit setup in nero 9


Here is something I was workining hard to solve: how to install any nero 9 app for example "Nero Burning rom" or "Nero Stsrtsmart" from one of the seperate .msi installers without setupx.exe. These installers are found when you extract the full downloaded packege of nero 9. In the folder you find folders named "unit_app_4", "unit_app_5" and so on.
Inside the unit_app folders you find cab files and an .msi installer. If you try to execute the .msi you recieve an error stating this program can only be started from "setupx.exe".
This is most distubing since what would seem to be the only option is to go through nero's set up process which is time consuming and annoying.

However I have discovered a way to choose the applications I like for example Nero burning rom which is the files in "unit_app_4" and install any one of these apps directly from the .msi installer.

To do this you will need an .msi windows installer editor. The one I use is "ORCA" which is available from microsoft and comes with the windows installer sdk.

The first thing to do is edit the .msi. The .msi in the folder to burning rom is labled "unit.msi" as are all the .msi installers for each app. Open orca. Drag and drop "unit.msi" onto orca.
On the left hand tables select "custom action'. On the right hand window under "action" select "CA_BeforeDeferredFinalizexxInstall". Right click on this and then delete it.

Number of downloads: 119
Now find in the left hand "table" "launch condition". Right click on it and select "drop table".
gif.gif Cape.JPG (47.21K)
Number of downloads: 75
Save the changes and exit orca.
You should now be able to install the application with the modified installer be clicking on it.
After running the install you should find folders and files in "program files" and "program files\common files" but there will be no shortcuts.
We are not finished.

If you go to the folder that contains "nero.exe" don't even try it becouse it won't work.
Nero applications will only work with a serial key and a crucial file which must be registerd.
You need this file: "AdvrCntr4.dll". In ordern to get this file you will have to run the full packege installer or setupx.exe. When you get to the first welcome to nero page go to your temp folder and you will find a folder named "nro.tmp". Open this folder select "AdvrCntr4.dll" and move it to "program files\common files".
Open a commaned prompt. Change the directory to "program files\common files"(CD %systemdrive%\program files\common files)

Type "regsvr32 AdvrCntr4.dll"
It will confirm that the file is registered.
Now you need your serial.
Open a command. Type REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Nero\Shared\NL9 /v Serial9_1223131541 /d 1111-2222-3333-4444-5555-6666-7777-8888
Substitute these intergers with your key.
You may need the product id which is under the same key. The easiest way to enter it along with the serial is to install nero with the normal installer or setupx.exe go through the process and then export the key containing the product id and serial from registry editor.
(Be carful not to use the nero product id from vista on xp becouse they are different.)

Your application should now work. thumbup.gif

--This edit is for people who modified their .msi but still can not launch it directly. This behavior only occurs if the .msi you edited has bean used previously.--

The reason for this is the .msi was executed before it was modified and the data base located in c:\windows\installer
is still refering to the previosly executed unmodified .msi.
To create a new data base find the .msi in the c:\windows\installer folder and delete it but thats hard to find so just move the installer folder somewhere outside of c:\windows, create a new folder in c:\windows named installer and execute the modified .msi which will create a new data base then move the installer folder you moved out of c:\windows back to c:\windows. The .msi should now execute directly.

Hi Princess Tina,

It sounds like the registry keys needed to recognise and open msi files are missing or incorrect.
Paste the following into a new file (eg. with notepad) and save the file with a .reg extension. setupmsi.reg will do ok. Then double click on the saved reg file and add the keys to your registry. (The first line "Windows Registry Editor Version 5.0" must be the first line in the file).

Error 2753 HP3055


My Scenario:

OS: MS Windows XP SP3 [Version 5.1.2600]
Printer: HP LaserJet 3390 (AiO) (Firmware datecode: 20070331)
Printer Connection: Connected via Ethernet with a static IP address
HP Driver Version: v4.0 (hp_LJ3050-3052-3055-3390-3392_Full_Solution_AMWE.exe)

Ran into same error that everyone else is experiencing. (see below)

Now Launching=X:\hpzmsi01.exe -m dot4msi -l XXX -f X:\DIVins??.DAT
Error message received: The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2753.
X:\HPZBDI32.msi failed with return code 1603
MSIInstall() failed with 1603
Exit code=1603

After debugging HP's installation scripts for 2 days, here is the cause & solution I identified to this specific install error. Once I got passed this error, everything installed without error and all functionality was working properly (including scanning!).


BACKGROUND:

Microsoft Installer (MSI) error 1603 is simply a generic "A fatal error occurred during installation" -- see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa368542(VS.85).aspx. This is basically MSI telling you that something very bad has happened during the installation. In order to get more details, you can turn on MSI debug logging by following this MS Knowledge Base article (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/223300).

The MSI error code 2753 is the code for "The File '<file name>' is not marked for installation.". This error can be triggered by many scenarios, but usually, it has to do with the actual installation script not properly checking for the existence/non-existence of an installation file and then not marking it for either installation/removal. I know this sounds confusing, and it is. If your curious about all the possible causes, just Google for "msi 2753 not marked for installation" and you'll see lots of results which you can peruse for your own enjoyment.

In order to identify what was causing these 2 errors, I enabled debugging for MSI via the aforementioned MS KB article

CAUSE:

Certain HP services (and associated DLL files) were somehow partially/improperly installed. (Possibly, from a previous failed install?)

The Windows services (files) were:

Pml Driver HPZ12 (C:\Windows\System32\HPZipm12.dll)
Net Driver HPZ12 (C:\Windows\System32\HPZinw12.dll)

The existence of these 2 files in the System32 directory was causing this error in my situation. Somehow, the installation script was not identifying that these files were already installed (or improperly installed) and failing to properly set them to be installed again.

SOLUTION:

Steps:

1) Check to make sure that the 2 Windows services above are not running (or not installed).
2) Rename/delete the 2 associated service DLL files (this will only be possible once the services are stopped)
3) Run the installation again.

If all goes well, the install should now run without any issues.


Hope this helps since many people (including myself) have spent a lot of time (and HP Support chats) trying to find a workaround for this issue.

If you find this solution helped you out, please feel free to make a small donation to my PayPal ;)
