Hi Gang,

I am unable to install the Adobe PDF filter, ifilter60.exe, on my server.

When I execute the .exe, the program window starts up then dissappears after a few seconds.  The process continues to appear in the task manager but nothing happens.

Any ideas?
Thanks.

There should be some on-screen install instructions... so something is up.

Have you tried rebooting the computer and then reinstalling?  Could be something dorked up with the Windows Installer.

I did a reboot on Saturday.  I get the same problem.

I am able to run the exe on my desktop, and on two other servers we have, but not this server.

Thanks for the comment.  This enhancement sounds promising... • Windows Installer no longer fails silently when the installer tries to update a file that is protected by the Windows File Protection feature.

I'll investigate this and let you know if it works.
