Groupwise not installing on Windows XP SP3
Posted on 2008-10-11
I am having a problem installing Groupwise 6.5 on 2 identical machines.
Machine stats: Windows XP Pro SP3
Intel Core2 7200
1 GB Ram
Intel DP43TF motherboard
Novell Client installed and functioning fine
AVG antivirus 8 (disabled and enabled with no change in install problem)
Problem occurrs when running the Setup.exe from the win32 directory of the groupwise installer.
I have tried installing from the server's client files, a new download of the client installer from Novell, and putting the install files on a CD, pen drive. All of the methods result in the pointer having an hour glass beside it for a couple moments, then nothing.
Running Taskmanager reveals the setup.exe file running in the processes, but never a status change.
Groupwise 7 client will install fine (tried it on one of the machines) but it is not compatible with the server version of Groupwise.
