Installation is the act of making a computer program program ready for execution. Because the process varies programs often come with a specialized program responsible for doing whatever is needed for their installation. Installation may be part of a larger software deployment process. Cross platform installer builders that produce installers for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux include InstallAnywhere, InstallBuilder and Install4J. Installers for Microsoft Windows include Windows Installer, InstallShield, and Wise Installation Studio; free installer-authoring tools include NSIS, IzPack, Clickteam, InnoSetup, InstallSimple and WiX. Mac OS X includes Installer, and also includes a separate software updating application.

In InstallShiled setup project we have certain requirement that we need to validate any specific DataBase is exist or not on given SQL Server.

For that we are using below Install Script:

szADOConnObjID = "ADODB.Connection";
set pADOConnObj = CreateObject(szADOConnObjID); 

szConnString = "driver={SQL Server};"; // For TLS 1.2 Only use driver={SQL Server Native Client 11.0};
szConnString = szConnString + "server=SQLServerName;";
szConnString = szConnString + "Initial Catalog=master;";
szConnString = szConnString + "Integrated Security=True";
MessageBox("SQL Connection String: " + szConnString, INFORMATION);
	
try
	MessageBox("Trying with Windows Authentication first", INFORMATION);
	if (pADOConnObj.State==0)then 
		pADOConnObj.Open(szConnString);
		MessageBox("Connection Success", INFORMATION);
	endif;	
catch
	MessageBox("Windows Authentication Catch",INFORMATION);
	MessageBox(Err.Description , SEVERE);
endcatch;

Open in new window


With above Install Script it gives below error:
---------------------------
Sample SQL Connect - InstallShield Wizard
---------------------------
Multiple-step OLE DB operation generated errors. Check each OLE DB status value, if available. No work was done.
---------------------------
OK

Any idea what am I doing something wrong here?

I'm trying to install the evaluation version of MS System Center 2012 Virtual Machine Manager and get the following error at the end of the installation (see screen shot).

I did download install winrm 5.1 separately after looking at KB2742275 however that didn't help.  One requirement  MS has is being joined to a domain.  Is there any way to install this without a domain controller present?

Thanks

Hello all,
I have a brand new Windows 2016 Standard server with WSUS installed on it.  This has been working great for the past two months.  The WSUS is using WID for it's database.
We had to install SQL server 2016 on the same server and since then the WSUS will not come up.
Every time I try to run it I get an error that it is not responding.
I have no idea what to do on this.
Please help.
Thanks,
Kelly W.

Does anyone know how to get the scanner software or feature to work on a Canon ImageCLASS D1150 copier/scanner?  

The printer works just fine if I download the drivers from Canon or any other google sources but when I try to get the scanner to work, the Canon MF Toolbox will not see the scanner (even after updating the drivers and also tried adding outbound and inbound firewall rules.

http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/PRINTER/CANON/Canon-imageCLASS-D1150-UFRII-Printer-Driver-270.shtml

http://community.usa.canon.com/t5/Office-Printers/Imageclass-D1150-and-WIndows-10/td-p/153210

The client is using Windows 10 and I tried several options related to the above URLs and other issues that folks have encountered with Windows 10.

Let me know if anyone has any suggestions on how to get the Canon MF Toolbox Kit to see the scanner?

thank you!

I used hostupon.com shared hosting

with my wordpress installation I am asked

website name
location (directory) on website
wp login
wp password
wp admin email

I want to make 20 of the same type of website but I think that hostupon.com shared hosting is not the correct solution for that
I think I will be forced to manually install and remember every single theme and required plugin that went with that theme

plus I dont even know where the mysql is

I was never asked to create mysql login and password and database name and database table name prefix

Hi there,

I have a laptop running Windows 10 Home and certain applications won't install, they will just get the error message shown in the screenshot about half way through installation process, in this case when trying to install iTunes.

I have looked around and it appears to be a common issue however there isn't really an exact fix for it, I read something about it being something to do with Microsoft Visual C++, so I've tried installing newer versions but even these won't install and come up with the same error message.

I have also made sure Windows is up to date which for the most part is, I believe it's something more in depth into the OS which is causing this problem.

I'm stuck on what to do next and really don't want to have to reinstall the operating system so any help would be greatly appreciated.

For the system correctly work this operation is needed:

REGSVR32  C:\Windows\System32\comdlg32.ocx

Is it possible to make it automatic?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Guys,

I am having difficulty installing WSUS on Windows Server 2012 (.NetFW 4.5)
I went through quite a number of articles, but still getting:
"Fatal Error: Attempted to Perform an Unauthorized Operation"

I've been trying to install via PowerShell and ServerManager.

I tried applying ACLs to the WSUS folders:
- NETWORK SERVICE
- BUILTIN\Users
- NT Authority\Authenticated Users
- Local & Domain Administrators

I got some "access denied" errors while applying the ACLs.

I also followed the complete reinstall as in this topic:

I get this issue with adobe photoshop editor, any idea how to resolve?

C:\program files\adobe\photoshop elements 13\msvcp100.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support

I have a piece of software under Win7 which after installation requires activation trough a license key and personal data info. I have all that and the programs works fine.
I have a second license key with other name for that software.
I am allowed to have only one license at one moment, so I uninstall the program and reinstall and then I input the second name/license and does not work because in registry somewhere the 1st pair of name/license remained mentioned.
How can I clean that in such way (Registry?) that would let me install the 2nd pair of name/license?
I have used RegScanner and other registry programs and Revo Uninstaller, but no success so far, the first registration name appears implicit each time.
Do you know any other cleaning methods?

Hello all,
    As the title says, I am looking for the easiest to deploy preconfigured backup utility. Something I can perhaps set the destination as a NAS, but then have the folder for a user being just their login name, then have it backup my documents and the desktop. It would be of course ideal to just have a simple install that doesn't require setting up destinations and folders during each installation.

If anyone has any recommendations, I would appreciate it!
Thanks,
