Install on XP 32b fails to start service, then aborts install.

4 posts in this topic

Install on Windows XP 32b fails to start service, then aborts the installation and removes itself.  It asks to verify sufficient privileges, but I am already logged in as administrator. No log available since install failed to complete. I modified my registry so that I have install as administrator option for msi packages. Like this:

But when I try to install as administrator it says package cannot be opened and may not be a valid windows install package. Don't know what to try next.  Note this is the Windows XP machine installation I'm having a problem with.

Previous version 1.8.8 worked with these two computers, but did have functional problems intermittently.

Same issue here.

Unfortunately I need to keep this one 32-bit XP box around for a piece of legacy software and cannot upgrade it to Win 7 or 10.

I use Synergy on it so I don't have to keep it's keyboard/mouse on my desk.
