Question about InstallShield Update Service Version 3

1 Answer

I just installed windows XP service pack 3, installshield errors

I just installed windows XP service pack 3, from scratch. I installed the motherboard driver, usb/ethernet/audio drivers. I then updated my processor's driver. I then installed all of windows updates, then my video card driver.

Weird stuff is, my installshield doesn't quite work, I get error -

Error Code: -5006 : 0x8000ffff
Error Information:
>SetupDLLSetupDLL.cpp (1194)
PAPP:Oblivion
PVENDOR:Bethesda Softworks (http://www.bethsoft.com)
PGUID:35CB6715-41F8-4F99-8881-6FC75BF054B0
$11.0.0.28844
@Windows XP Service Pack 3 (2600) BT_OTHER 232.64

It does something similar for all games requiring installshield to install. It is very annoying, I can post more info from my diaxdiag if needed, but the point is how do I repair my installshield?

Please also take note, it does not appear under "services" in windows config, for whatever reason.



Heres dxdiag anyway...

Tip

Upgrading Windows XP


Most users of Windows XP are using Windows XP service pack 2.
You can upgrade Windows XP service pack 2 by installing plain service pack 3.
This will upgrade and improve functionality to your current installation to Windows XP.
There are alot of versions of Windows XP Service pack 3 but i recommend downloading an official version from Microsoft's downloads center through the link below.

To after download is complete, install the file. Installation takes about 10 to 30 minutes depending on your system specifications.
If your current installation of Windows XP has too many errors, installation of service pack 3 may not be successful.
The solution to this is to reinstall your Operating System (OS) using your OS installation CD, then install Service pack 3.
How ever, OS re installation will erase all your data in your system partition so back up all your data.

To download an official copy of Windows XP service pack 3, follow this link:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=5B33B5A8-5E76-401F-BE08-1E1555D4F3D4&displaylang=en

My computer will not properly install Microsoft Windows XP service pack 3. What do I need to do to fix this problem?


You need to get an official service pack 3 from microsoft's website.

Follow this link (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=5B33B5A8-5E76-401F-BE08-1E1555D4F3D4&displaylang=en)
The file size is about 316 mb.

If you already have this file, service pack 3 will not install if your current version of windows has errors. That means you have to reinstall Windows XP, install your pc device drivers, then install windows xp service pack 3.

SP33867 is not installing on windows XP sp3


Windows Error 0×80040707 - Caused by InstallShield and Windows SP2 DEP
Posted Service Packs & Hotfixes, Software - Third Party Programs, Windows Desktop Fixes on Saturday, March 11th, 2006.
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.

Problem loading XP Serve Pack 2 in Gigabyte 8I845GVM-RZ


I know this may sound mundane, but did you load the correct set of windows drivers for the Intel 845 chipset? I mistakenly loaded the Home drivers onto a unit I tried to install Pro on and I got all sorts of errors.

Microsoft windows xp home edition service pack 2 error 1603


Hello corejmwilli,

The 1603 error code your getting, is probably a conflick within the .net versions. I would go to remove programs and software in control panel, and delete any versions of .net that are there, and then you can download this one which is the most current. HERE. That should solve your provblem.

Good Luck
