HTTP Server plugins installing to wrong directory

I am trying to install and configure my IBM HTTP Server on a 64bit Windows Server 2008 Web Edition.

The problem is that part of the plugin installation is in the wrong directory - a huge bug you will see.

It actually installs most of the application to C:\Program Files(x86) and the webserver does work. But part of the plugins are installed to C:\Program Files(x86.

I have the two paths:
C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\HTTPServer\Plugins
C:\Program Files(x86\IBM\HTTPServer\Plugins)

** Install IHS Webserver Plugin 08/26/2010 02:43 PM

INSTALL ERROR!!! C:\Program Files(x86/IBM/HTTPServer/Plugins/config/webserver1/plugin-cfg.xml) does not exist.
            The file MUST exist for a local_standalone configuration. If you selected to have the
            definition for webserver webserver1 created by the plugin installer please check
            C:\Program Files(x86/IBM/HTTPServer/Plugins)\logs\configure_ihs_webserver.log
            to determine the cause of the failure.

Configuring web server, the output will be recorded in: C:\Program Files(x86/IBM/HTTPServer/Plugins)/logs/install/configure_IHS_webserver.log
Creating webserver definiton script C:\Program Files(x86/IBM/HTTPServer/Plugins)\bin\configurewebserver1.bat for REMOTE Profile

Looking for a workaround to creating these two files if possible - I don't mind doing some hand work to get this working. The environment is two machines: App Server on one on the LAN and HTTP Server in the DMZ.

get rid of all these files (uninstall) and try to installit again. something is wrong with dir names and to me it seems that it has been just mistyped in the destination directory dialog.
ay attention to names when reinstaling.if this goes wrong again,try to installit using response files - install of both IHS and Plugin requires just a few flags so it willbe easy. sample response file is delivered with your IHS install
edit it approprietly and then install with
install.bat -options responsefilename -silent

then you'll be sure the paths are fine.

good luck

I always used the default paths and double checked  them just to be sure. At no point during the confirmation screens was  anything afoul.

After several attempts and reinstalling and trying to manually force things around I ended up just installing to C:\IBM and everything works fine.

most programs dont like to be innstalled in the (x86) directory. Same with DB2. Allways better to create ones own. Glad you fixed the problem.
