Fatal Error installing EntLib 3.1 on Vista

Aug 7, 2007 at 11:18 PM
Error description in Event Viewer:
Windows Installer installed the product. Product Name: Enterprise Library 3.1 - May 2007. Product Version: Product Language: 1033. Installation success or error status: 1603.

Can someone help move this roadblock?

That's a generic error message. Please try installing the msi with logging enabled. You'll need to run msiexec /l* log.txt /i "Enterprise Library May 2007.msi" and look for the error details in the log file.

Fernando, I ran msi install with logging enabled. I have a log.txt file handy. It is way too large to post it here. Can you provide an email address so I can forward it to you?

Thank you for your help!

I figured out the reason. My corporte laptop user profile folder and subfolders is encrypted for corporate governance purposes.
When I run install the .msi is using temp folders structure to unzip some files. Laptop encryption prevents from writing to temp folders and install errors out with access violation.

I unencrypted my profile, re-run the install and had no issues this time.
