dh53 Posted January 3, 2019 Share Posted January 3, 2019 Today I tried to move a project to a new computer and I can't seem to install DAQFactory. The computer I want to use runs Windows 7 pro. I downloaded the latest DAQFactory installer, DAQFactoryInst_17_1.exe When I try to run it the installer splash screen comes up and I get an error "DAQFactory requires administrative privileges to install." The user account has administrator privileges on that computer. I tried to right click the installer and run as administrator but I get the same thing, splash screen then privileges error. I tried to right click, go to file properties, Compatibility, and set the file Privilege Level to "Run this program as an administrator." Same error. I moved the installer file to a directory C:\temp that is set so all users have full access to read, write, or modify. Same error. I don't really know what to look for in the log file. Near the end of the log file I see this (where xx:xx: is the timestamp): Action xx:xx:xx:LaunchConditions. Evaluating Launch Conditions Action start xx:xx:xx: LaunchConditions. DAQFactory requires administrative privileges to install MSI(c) (24:14) [XX:XX....] Product: DAQFactory -- DAQFactory requires administrative privileges to install. Action ended xx:xx:xx: LaunchConditions. Return value 3. MSI(C) (24:14) [xx:xx...] Doing action: FatalError" Any ideas why this is happening? Is there some other way to set administrator privileges? What is LaunchConditions 3 and does that tell me anything beyond the privileges error? Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
