Setup Initialization Error
Posted on 1998-09-04
Trying to install a demo software in Win95 I get the following "Setup Initialization Error":
<< Setup is unable to find a hard disk location to store temporary files. Make at least 831 kb free disk space available and try running Setup again.
Error 101 >>
This is ridiculous, of course, as there is over 300 MB free disk space available. The file install.exe is from Sterling Technologies and quite old (1995). It creates a subdirectory in C:\Windows\temp named _istmp0.dir (empty when I checked), shows setup progress to 70% and then displays the error message above.
