MSI - Lost connection to custom action server process. Attempting to regenerate.


I'm trying to install a program on my XP-computer. But after installation the program doesn't work ok.

And when I logg the installation the last line look like this
MSI (s) (D8:6C) [11:16:36:218]: MainEngineThread is returning 0
MSI (s) (D8:58) [11:16:36:218]: Destroying RemoteAPI object.

Open in new window

If I run the setup on an other XP-computer the logging does end with
"Lost connection to custom action server process. Attempting to regenerate."

Does anybody know whats is wrong?

Could you please attach the entire log?

I assume you tried rebooting and tried the install again?

CSI-Windows_com: Yes I have rebooted and tried several times.
Attached the entire log as well

I can't get the log to download via chrome or IE - could you please use wetransfer.com to send it to experts dot services at sanoys dot com?
