Problem installing Microsoft Encarta 2005 Encyclopedia Deluxe
Posted on 2004-11-05
At the end of a 3-CD install for the above Encarta, I receive an error message: "an error occurred during installation of assembly component (followed by a long string of letters and #'s between curly braces).
At the time the error message occurs, the progress dialog is at 100% with the status reading: "Registering fonts Font:Ref_Icon.FON
After clicking on the error message Ok button the application does an installation rollback and I'm back where I started.
I tried this on 3 XP machines with the same result. All 3 had previously had the full Encarta reference library 2003 installed and removed.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
