[FIX] Install Shield Failing due to several unresolved issues




Ok so I had to reinstall some software, and kept getting repeated installation failures even after system cleansing, restarts, safe mode, etc. Every time it would say:


"Installation failed due to one or more unresolved issues. Error I-001" followed by "Error: Cannot find installation. Check this program is installed before attempting to install" - LOL?!


Anyway, eventually I figured out that if you delete the following hidden folder, you remove the issue.. It's just InstallShield confusing itsself.


C:/Program Files (x86)/InstallShield Installation Information/ <--- Delete that folder and start the installation again. Problem solved.


Note: This is for Windows Vista/7 64bit.. For 32 bit I assume it will be in "Program Files" instead.

Note 2: In Windows XP it should be C:/Program Files/common/InstallShield Installation Information/ - I found that info online and dont use XP any more so I cannot guarantee it.


If ever you run into a similar problem, this solved them all for me without causing any problems. The folder is simply recreated properly. The folder you delete obviously has some corrupt / invalid data in it.

Oh my bad.. I thought you were asking if this blog entry was about linux! Lmao xD


But yeah.. Until Ubuntu gets back to reality, or Mint actually release a version without 10million bugs, I will stay on Windows. Can't be assed converting over again and again just to find out that it's all bullshit. Linux is seriously losing its touch while trying to appeal to non-techie users.
