Now that you have a general understanding of the nature of the problem, let’s move on to solutions. Make sure you apply them in the order in which they appear to avoid conflicts.


Most of these solutions are from InstallShield article Q108340 available at http://consumer.installshield.com/kb.asp?id=Q108340.

  • If you are installing StarSQL from a local drive other than C: drive or network drive, copy the original setup files to your local C: drive and run the setup file. .exe from this installation source directory.
  • Make sure no other applications, installations or processes are running in the background. You may need to temporarily disable or close your antivirus software.
  • Make sure Microsoft Update is not installing Windows updates in the background.
  • Make sure the installer folder is in Windows. The directory, StarSQL installation source folder and Temp folder in the user’s home directory have full access rights granted to the respective groups and users. These folders may be hidden on your computer. In this case, configure your computer to display hidden files and folders (this option is usually set on the View tab in the folder options). Below are detailed instructions for ensuring that these folders have the required permissions.
    1. Find the Installer folder. The storage location depends on the version of Windows you are using:
      • Windows 2000: C: WINNT Installer
      • Windows XP / 2003 Server / Vista: C: Windows Installer
  • Right-click the installer folder and select Properties.
  • Select the Security tab.
  • Make sure the system, administrators, and local system account have full control over this folder.
  • Repeat steps 1 through 4 for the StarSQL installation source directory and temporary directory. The Temp directory is usually located at C: Documents and Settings Local Settings Temp.
    • Verify that the InstallShield registry key in the Windows registry has Full Control privileges assigned to the appropriate groups.
      1. Choose Start> Run and type regedt32 or regedit.
      2. Go to the next key:


      1. Check the permissions of this registry key. In most Windows versions, you can right-click and select Permissions. Some versions of Windows may have a security menu that lists Permissions commands.
      2. Assign Administrators and Full Control Group to this registry key, if they do not already exist.
