   I have a user that I'm trying to install Calyx Point software on her Windows XP machine and each time she begins the install she will get the following error:

Error Code:      -5004 : 0x80029c4a

When clicking in the details of this error as as such:

Error Information:
>SetupDLL\SetupDLL.cpp (1975)
PVENDOR:Calyx Software

I have tried searching Installshields support site, nothing came up.  As well as on here and  I've deleted cache, Active-X controls, Installshield Engine folder, %temp files, *.tmp files, cleared Prefetch folder, created folder on desktop and copied contents of software into the folder, gave folder full permissions and tried to run setup.exe from the hard drive, no go, still same error message.  I've also tried installing it in Safe Mode, did not help.  I've searched the registry for the 85bc5c08-e73d-11d2-964d-444553540000 key, but it didn't find anything.  I've searched the Local hard drive for PVENDER.exe, nothing.  Any suggestions about how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

    Sounds like it could mean there's a 'dependency' to another file or system file.  Does trying the install in SAFE MODE work, in case a file needed is in use?  Not familiar with the program at all, though.

    In case a system file is corrupted/damaged or missing, try start - run - sfc /scannow (space after sfc) and have the XP disk handy.

    To Resolve:    1.) Delete all profile temp files i.e. Start>Run, type in:  %temp% (Delete as many files as possible in Window)

                         2.) Click Start>Search>All Files and Folders> type in *.tmp , then choose Local Disk C and then click Search.(Delete as

                              many files as possible in Window)

                         3.) Delete the “Entire” Installshield folder.  

                         4.) Make sure there are no files ending in “40,000” in the InstallShield Information Folder.

                         5.) Run Point Setup.exe file again.

                         6.) When Point is installed, double-click on the Point icon, you will more than likely get the below error message then:


                                         Error:  “The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135)”


                          7.) Go to the below URL upon receiving the error above and download  and install .NET Framework Version 2.0  

                               Redistributable Package Beta 1(x86)


    NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package Beta 1 (x86)
