Hi,

I downloaded Microsoft Enterprise Library 2.0 and tried to install it on Windows Vista Ultimate.  Regardless of whether I am logged in as administrator or not I get error "installation ended prematurely because of an error"

I have seen a post that said - install it on XP then copy folders - that kinda sounds dodgy to me.  There must be a better solution.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

You might want to try installing it as the "real" Administrator in Vista, which is an account that is disabled by default, so you will have to enable it before you can use it:

How to access the true Administrator account in Windows Vista


the "real administrator account" is disabled by default so you have to enable it:-

Press [Windows Key] + [r] to enable the RUN option
enter LUSRMGR.MSC (the local user accounts manager)
Accept the UAC warning and continue
Double-click USERS
Double-click ADMINISTRATOR
Deselect ACCOUNT IS DISABLED

Thanks LeeTutor

ACCOUNT IS DISABLED is not checked!

One thing I am not sure is:
I am logging in as domain administrator account or my user which is member of administrators group.  What is the difference between these and local administrator account, the password of which I don't know?

I'm not really sure what you are asking.  Some pages to look at:

I am aware of the Vista UAC features.

I confused myself because the administrator account for the PC is the domain administrator.

I am still unable to do the install regardless of what account I use to log in.  My issue may be caused by something else.  One thing i notice is that the download page at M$ for the Enterprise Library 2.0 states that only XP and Windows Server 2003 is supported, why not Vista?

I was wondering about that when I did my google search for enterprise library and vista, because I found a page referencing version 3.1.  Maybe you should go with the 3.1 version, which this page says is compatible with Vista:

I have already done that :-)  It installs fine.  I didn't want the dependency of WCF and all things .NET 3.0.  I know .NET 3.0 is on Vista but no other tools to develop with.  I am using VS 2005.  There are plugins for .NET 3 development put it is not native to VS 2005.

Let me see how this EntLib version works.

Thanks for your input

LeeTutor,

Thanks for your help.  I have successfully installed v 3.1 but cannot seem to get it working.  I added ExceptionHandling block to my app but have NullRefrence error in ExceptionPolicy.HandleException(ex, "Application Error");

If you know how to set up the ExceptionHandling block with logging pls help.  I am about to start referencing the src rather the precompiled assemblies so that I can dig deeper into the code to see where the problem lies.

Cheers
