XE7 installation

Hi,

I'm hoping to upgrade my XE installation to XE7; but before I remove
a perfectly working environment, I'm installing XE7 alongside XE.
Reading previous entries, this seems not to be a problem.

On my Win7 32bit notebook, I used 7zip to 'uncompress' the ISO to
a folder. I then ran the XE7 installation program, which
showed a splashscreen and three options(Install, Read Installation
Notes and Exit).

No matter how many times I click on the "Install Delphi and/or C++
Builder", nothing happens.

Am I missing something?

Any help appreciated.

Is the click recognized (any visible sign from the control on the window)?
Is this one of the occasions where a confirmation window is hiding
behind the (stay-on-top) splash screen?
Probably not, but try to move the splash. Maybe, maybe...

Hi Aage,

It's recognized as I notice the button is depressed; but nothing
happens.

behind the (stay-on-top) splash screen?

Nope. I moved the splash away from the centre of the screen. Nothing
was behind it.

I've looked in the Admin Tools's Event Viewer. Nothing out of the
ordinary. I've run the installation using Admin privs... still
nothing.

I'll try to redownload the iso and see if that works.

Thanks

While I can't explain why clicking on Install Delphi and/or C++ Builder
does nothing, try running setup.exe from the install folder. It does the
same thing.

Basically a small dos window appears and quickly disappears and nothing
else happens. There are no errors in the Event Viewer.

I just did a checkdisk on my system, and will try to install it again.

If that doesn't work, I guess I'm going to have to mount the
iso, and copy the files to a thumbdrive and then run the installation
from the thumbdrive.

I suggest there are three likely causes to your problem.

1. Somehow the ISO got downloaded wrong. Check the size. If it's 7GB+,
I'm going to suggest it's fine. I only say this as in the past as I have
gone around and around in a circle try to solve an installer problem,
only to eventually discover the size of the download was nowhere near 7 GB.

2. It's getting extracted wrong. Try a different tool.

3. Something third party is causing the problem. This would be my hunch.
Turn off virus protection and run msconfig and boot in diagnostic mode.

It works now. I think either the iso was corrupted, or something in
the processing of 'uncompressing' the iso to a folder (via 7zip)
got screwed up.

Thanks!
