Installshield not doing anything

Q: Installshield not doing anything

Background: As of yesterday I am on a fresh Windows 7 installation, prior to that any game/program that used installshield took forever to install. It would literally sit there for about 45 minutes to an hour before the progress bar moves anywhere.

Now that I am on a fresh installation of Windows 7 I figured all my problems would be gone, boy was I wrong. I started to install Crysis, then got up to do something, I come back an hour later, 0 progress. Same thing with Star Wars: Republic Commando. Both use installshield.

Note: I am not getting errors, the progress bar just sits there.

Edit: after about 40 minutes, Republic commando decided to start installing, but the issue still stands that installshield would want nothing more that to just waste my time

Preferred Solution: Installshield not doing anything

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi All,

I created .msi file with InstallShield X Basic MSI package.
I used custom dialogs and custom actions. For this requires InstallShield Scripting Engine to run this file. And This file I got ISScript101.zip. This is manual way of installing the scripting engine.
This is working fine on systems where ISScript engine has been installed,

But I need to avoid manually installing scripting engine, ISScript engine should be installed as part of MSI installation.
I need to include .msm file with this package. I included installshieldscriptingengine.msm file with version 10.01.

But it's not working, when i am installing this package in, any Windows Operating System.

What should I requires to do? How to proceed?

case where DLG_ERR.--- showing error "Unable to display dialog box. Setup canceled",

Please Help!

I can't install anything, and I suspect I won't be able to uninstall anything either.

I have searched the Internet for a solution and tried the suggestions, but it won't work.

What's happening is if I try to install a program the Install initialises, but when the progress bar comes up, even before it begins to do anything, i get an error saying "An installation support file could not be installed. Interface not registered."

I have tried:

Deleting the Engine folder.
Reinstalling the Engine from the InstallShield website - this obviously doesn't work because InstallShield doesn't work...
Deleting a registry key: "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{00020420-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}\InprocServer32".

Another reply here suggested reinstalling IE, but I can't, as when I try to run the install file it says there is a newer version of IE6 already on my machine.

Is there anything else I can do?

What even caused it? I can't even try System Restore because I don't know when it was... I haven't installed anything in ages.

I am using an otherwise well-behaved (and clean) PC running XP sp2. I am the sole user.

The last successful instalation of anything was Windows Update last week, and the last third-party program was FirefoxDeploy and that was about a fortnight or so ago, but I don't know if that used InstallShield.

Please help! And Merry Christmas!!

I have installshield on my pc. My inspector programme tells me that it will no longer be updated and, therefore, it should be uninstalled (as a security measure).

I have a number of options.

Use a programme that removes the registry entries, but leaves the programmes on disk. There are references in the registry;
Switch-off automatic updates in the update manager (installshield);
white-list installshield in the inspector program.

The programme cannot be uninstalled in Programs and Features (not listed).
Evidently, I should not manually delete the programs.

I don't know what to do.

Advice please.

A:Installshield

Perfect uninstaller and revounistaller will both force an uninstall (by removing the registry entries) as well as remove the files however they must be used with care. I don't know what software you are using but before you start following it's advise and uninstall everything that it lists as some kind of security threat you might want to research what you are removing to find out if it should be left alone. Take installshield-a simple google search shows what it is used for. It is used by developers to aid in the installation and removal of their programs which probably explains why it doesn't show up in programs and features. Therefore if you force an uninstall of installshield you could mess up other programs and find that you can't remove or maybe even use them. My advice to you is to leave installshield alone. Also take care when using any registry cleanup software because if it damages the registry you could start having windows or program errors or possibly not be able to boot into windows depending upon the level of damage.

Hi all,

I had to go back to a restore point because of a driver issue with regards to my DVD Rom on my laptop. Now, however, when I startup my lappy2000 I have a new-and-improved problem. I had Napster (I know, stupid) and it came with Roxio Media 9 (evil). I Unistalled Napster a while ago and appearantly I did not get rid of Roxio completely. This was never an issue until I ran the system Restore...

So the problem:
When ever I startup my computer InstallShield starts to install Roxio9 Media Center. Well it is mostly gone so it is missing files and the install creates an Error. I don't want Roxio Installed but I can't figure out how to stop it. I have to Control/Alt/Delete to end the process otherwise it continues to loop. Even if I hit cancel it will just start installing again a few seconds later. I ran a file and registry cleaner and cleaned out anything and everything I could find pertaining to Roxio's software and yet once I reboot my PC it trys to install again. So I think there is some .exe files in InstallShiled Wizard (evil) that keeps running. How do I locate these and how can I stop this? I did notice a file C:/program Files/InstallShield Instillation Information but this files in here have no names and look like registry information so I didn't want to just start deleting stuff.

Is there any way to get this installation out of InstallShields 'queue' for lack of a better term? In addition this is preventing me from being able to install ot... Read more

fyi basically had to hunt and destroy every file relating to Roxio I could find and disable install shield in msconfig. Not sure if that is a bad thing but I can regularly check for updates myself I don't need installshield to do it for me. Programs seem to install fine sooo hopefully no problems.

Hi,

I am having a problem with my computer where the Installshield wizard will not install particular programmes. For example, when installing iTunes and MSN Messenger upgrades there are the error codes 1601 and 1607. However, i've tried other programmes that use this software and it installs perfectly fine. I do regular virus and spyware checks. Other than this the computer works fine. I've been on the Installshield website where the instructions on there are more suitable for a pro so I have not been able to make use of them.

Is there any way I could re-install the Installshield software?

I am having a major problem trying to install some s/w (Sansa MediaConverter) on my P4, Win XP SP2 PC.

Just as the s/w begins to install I get a fatal error - (something like) "Unable to create a file that already exists ... C:\Progam Files\Common Files\Installshield\engine\6\Intel 32\iuser.dll"

Since I was able to install the s/w on a friend's similar PC I think the problem is a compatability or bug with XP and/or the Installshield appln on my machine.

I followed some suggestions (from the Installshield support site) and cleaned up my temp file, deleted the 'Engine 6' folder and reinstalled the Installshield 'ikernal.exe' but this hasn't helped.

Surprisingly when I tried to reinstall the 'ikernal' it also runs into exactly the same error! - so there is some issue with how the Installshield (Engine 6) is working on my PC.

Will be very appreciative for any ideas and advice on how to resolve this.

Many thanks.

P.S. I have had no other problems installing and running programs on this 2 yr old PC!

Hi everyone, been having issues with this for a while, and I dont know what I can do to fix it, I hops someone on here can help fix my problems.

Okay, to start, I have Windows 7 Home Premium, had since December 2009. The problem is, whenever I try to install a program that uses InstallShield, it doesnt work. However, it is only the version InstallShield games from about 2003-4 to 2006-7 used, newer and older versions work properly. Its only this certain version that it doesnt work on. Games which use it include stuff like Chris Sawyer's Locomotion, and Roller Coaster Tycoon 3.

What happens is it loads fuly then it comes up with an error message saying, "Unhandled Exception.... Error Number: 0x80040706.... Description: Object reference not set.... Setup will now terminate."

I have tried running it in compatability mode, and all sorts of other stuff to fix it but to no avail. I'm really getting tired of effectively having wasted my money on the games that dont even install. If you need more information on this then just reply asking what you need to know.

PS. The appropriate people can move this if it's in the wrong section.
PSS. I have uploaded a screenshot of the icon of the version that doesnt work. The newer versions and older versions all work properly

Hi,I've had this problem occur with a number of software packages I've bought in the past. First of all, I should say it usually (though not always) appears to occur when the software name or part of its run-path contains spaces. I'm running Win XP Pro SP2, for info.I recently bought a piece of software and its setup file, when double-clicked, launches Installshield. However, Installshield opens an unexpected grey box with the following contained inside:Command line parameters:/L language ID/S Hide initialization dialogue. For silent mode use: /S/v/qn./V parameters to MsiExec.exe/UA<url to InstMsiA.exe>/UW<url to InstMsiW.exe>/UM<url to msi package>I don't know how to get around this and all I can do is click 'OK', the grey box closes and the installation ends.I've fiddled with things like changing the permissions of the file to be 'run in Win95 mode', which enables me to install the software, but then there are problems when it comes to running the software after installation.I'd prefer to fix the problem at the Installshield end, believing that a modern installation file should work simply by double-clicking when the user has the most up-to-date version of Windows out (or thereabouts anyway)!!!Anyone got any bright ideas? I've come across this problem so frequently, it must be a common problem for others!cym.My Webpage

Welcome to TSG!
It seems this problem occurs when the current version oleaut32.dll for your OS is overwritten by a newer copy or another third party version. Installshield looks to C:\Windows\System for its version and that will be the one to change.
You will have to extract a copy of oleaut32.dll from your Win98SE windows CD and replace the one in C:\Windows\System

Whenever I try to install ANYTHING that requires installshield, it gives me the following error.

The installshield engine (iKernel.exe) could not be launched. The RPC Server is unavailable.
I've tried everything that it came up with on my google search. Ikernel.exe is not in processes, the RPC service is "Running" in services. I've even tried to uninstall/reinstall via Command prompt, with no luck there.

I downloaded the ikernel update, and the irony in this is, the file requires installshield
Anyone have any fresh ideas I can try? I'm going mad here, it's downloaded programs, and even games I've purchased, and own original CD copys of. Nothing seems to want to install.

On a side note, everytime I want to use "Windows installer", I have to go into the damn services, and start it. Even when I set it to automatic, after reboot, it isn't auto anymore. Not sure if that could possibly tie together or not, but I figured I'd mention it in case.

InstallShield always comes up with this error: "The Windows Installer Service cannot be accessed. This can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed.".

If you remove it you will no longer be able to Add or Remove anything. You might as well make a door stop out of your system. The MSI installer cleanup utility is meant to be used in case the current installer is screwed up. After you run the utility you must reinstall the MS installer engine.Unless I'm missing something in your post, just disable the startup items, reboot and remove the software you no longer want.

I already tried system restore and that wont work. The error says" Error: -1603 Fatal error during instalation. Consult Windows Installer Help (Msi.chm) or MSDN for more information" this comes up as a feature transfer error. I also get one that says please install the latest version of ISScript.msi. I know this is only happening because that folder was deleted. DO i need to reinstall installsheild, if so do i download it or should it be on one of the cd's that came with my Dell.

Hello everyone, I'm currently trying to download a game, and cannot make it past the Setup.. The error reads----- An error [-5001 : 0x8007002] has occurred while running the setup. Please make sure you have finished any previous setup and closed other applications. If the error still occurs, please contact your vendor.. I've closed all my running programs on my desktop, and then attempt to run the setup again, only to continue to have the same issues. I don't know if this is a problem within the setup, or windows.. I'm not computer savvy, any and all help would be appreciated.

Hi,

My first thought would be to reboot the computer, download the file again, and make sure to right mouse click on the setup file and "Run as administrator."

If that fails, try to access support from the web site of the game you are downloading. Usually, they can provide more insite into specific error messages with their products.

I'm trying to install football manager 2007.

I am running Windows 7 and my machine spec is fine but when I try to install it says: 'The installer was unable to run in graphical mode. Try running the installer in the -console or -silent flag.' I already have the latest java update.

I wondered if anybody would be able to help me with this?

I'm trying to download the Opera browser, but when I do, it goes though the steps of installing and then I get the following error:

Internal Error 2932C:\DocumentsandSettings\Compaq_Owner\ApplicationData\Microsoft\Installer\(C619B312-19F3-460A-9F7B-443248379F18)\ARPRODUCTICON.exe,131

I've tried several registry cleaners, etc. but can't fix the problems. I'm open to suggestions.

I bought a game today and wanted to install it. I put the cd in, and it says "The InstallShield Engine (ikernel.exe) could not be launched. No such interface supported." I've tried everything possible that google has to offer. I tried deleting the Engine file, but it won't delete. It would come right back. I tried looking for corrupt files in C:, nothing. I went to the Installshield consumers website. Nothing on there helped. I've tried all but downloading the latest version of ikernel, but the problem is I have to use the kernel program to install the latest kernel which isn't working. I hope that made sense. I saw I could use Windows Installer, but yeah I have no clue how to use that. I downloaded it, and I'm lost after that. It would be awesome if someone could give me walk through on using it or just tell me how to solve my original problem.

Oh if this helps:
I use Windows XP. I have an HP Pavilion dv6000. If you need anymore info, just ask.

I'm trying to delete some programs that aren't being used any longer to free up hard drive space. I noticed that "Digital Wizard" is at the top of the list of space used. It seems to be connected to InstallShield which, of course, is necessary. However, Digital Wizard collects information and sends it to InstallShield--that's printed in the user agreement. Is this spyware and is it necessary?

I downloaded software for my Palm Zire 72, and found out several programs could not be downloaded because I no longer had InstallShield. The exact error message: "1607 Unable to install InstallShield Scripting Runtime." What happened/what can be done? Thanx.
 

A:InstallShield Disappeared!

You never have InstallShield installed. It's just a wrapper used to install software. A Google search of the error message yielded some results.

The problem is this....when InstallShield Wizard begins it freezes half way throught the installation if not before that. We then have to restart the computer and of course the program is not installed. This happened recently with trying to install icq. It got almost right throught the installation and then froze while it was registering dll's. It also happened with a program called hotburn for burning cd's except this time the installation did not begin before it froze. I figure that installShield is the problem. How do i fix this?

 

A:InstallShield Wizard

It could be that too many programs are running in the backround and if you go to ctrl+alt+del and shut down everything except systray and explorer, the install may complete.
