Preferred Solution: Feature Transfer Error/InstallShield Installation Information

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.)

Answer: Feature Transfer Error/InstallShield Installation Information

Actual CD's/DVD's or images? From the error it looks like it can't the disk. Are you using the default save location or a custom location? Try the default and see what happens. Is you .NET framework up to date? You may also want get XP up to date.

I'm at my wits end, i have no idea what to do

Answer:Installation failing i keep getting feature transfer error

If this is a program; I would first download, install, and run the free edition of revo uninstaller; which should completely uninstall ALL of the program you are trying to install; including registry entries, etc. and then reboot; which will clear the system resources, etc. then try and install it again. Below is the link to revo uninstaller:

Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems

Now; if you do all of that and it still does not work for ya; post back and we can go from there.

I have the following folder on my Vista PC:

C:/Program Files/InstallShield Installation Information

And inside this folder is 14 folders named like:

{8CFEBE9C-F29F-4C49-80E0-7106970F8734}

What is this folder exactly? Can I empty it safely?

Thanks

Answer:InstallShield Installation Information , WHAT IS IT?

Do not empty this folder. It contains install info for various software you have installed, and this info is needed by installshield to uninstall the respective programs should you ever decide to do so.

Is it safe to delete it or should I just leave it alone?

Hi Slasher and welcome

Leave it, since it is only 100 Mb deleting it may give you more grief than the HD space reclaimed.

Hi eveyrone, I'm new, and I'm definitly not a computer wiz! I did some looking around on your site and did find some posts about the same error I am having. But I'm not sure if this will help me in any way, if you think they will just let me know. My pc had crashed, we had a power outage and the mother board went, lost all my stuff, even though they told me I could most likely take the hard drive and have it restored but money is tight on my end. I have pc protection through verizon so I got a brand new computer, its an HP (I had a Dell that was custom built by an old friend) anyway, my son has a few old games that worked absolutly fine on the old pc, I have no clue how to work Windows 8, I had windows xp, so I'm totally lost with this computer I'm afraid to even get on it!!! LOL anyway he got this error on two different games but like I said they are old and I did read it oculd be the disc might have scratches??? but I'm also wondering is there a difference between the windows xp to the windows 8 and maybe that is why it's not letting it download? Should I try and do that copy thing onto the harddrive? I did write down directions that I saw off of one post but I'm not sure if that would work with Windows 8, so I may need help on that.

I don't know if this is the right forum for this but here goes--I have a Dell Inspiron PC with Windows XP Home Edition, SP3. I recently tried to install the newest version of the Paypal plug-in and I'm getting a Feature Transfer Error ATL71. I am logged in as administrator. I even tried uninstalling the original plug-in and installing the newer version but I keep getting the same error. I had no problem reinstalling the original version of the plug-in.

Er No!!

Is the USB controller recognised? are there any drivers already installed? if so can you uninstall them

Can you turn USB 3 off in the BIOS? if yes do it, start your PC switch off the PC switch USB 3 back on again and try again

You could try using CCleaner both normal clean and registry don't forget to make a registry backup and then try installing it again
I hope this helps

"Edit" have a look here there are other drivers that I believe should work if you can install them; win 7 doesn't recognize NEC usb 3.0 driver

I am having some difficulty installing, uninstalling and reinstalling some OEM software supplied with a Video/Audio Grabber. By coincidence, the same software is also supplied with a USB DVB-Tuner that I also bought.
The disk that I am focusing on is the one supplied with the Video/Audio Grabber in the link below:

http://www.agknordic.com/new/index.php?side_id=248

I bought it from Netto a few months ago.
The OEM software is supplied by ArcSoft, this is the link to their website:

http://www.arcsoft.com/estore/featured_products.asp?id=ESTORE

The disk contains installations for:
a) Drivers
b) ShowBizDVD 2
c) TotalMedia 3.5
d) Video Downloader

My immediate issues are with a) and b) although it is apparent that neither of the other applications will work either.

I have tried to uninstall the above software after receiving error messages. I have used the disk supplied to attempt to carry this out.

The first message I get is:

Please check that the proper disk is inserted or specify a new path.

Hey,

I have recently bought Battlefield 2. Before doing this, I had *tried* to install the Battlefield 2 demo off the EA games website, where I run into the same problem:

After I insert Disc 1, I choose my language, click Install. I get the first welcome screen "The InstallShield Wizard will install Battlefield 2 on your computer. To continue, click next." I click next. I enter my registration key. I click next. This is where something goes wrong:

The next screen that shows up says:

"InstallShield Wizard Complete"
"The Wizard was interrupted before Battlefield 2 could be completely installed."
"Your system has not been modified. To install this program at a later time, please run the setup again."
"Click Finish to exit the setup wizard"

Every time I try at a "later time" i.e after rebooting, the same problem occurs.

I have tried a few things suggested by EA, such as closing background applications and processes, and yes, I AM on an administrative account

The auto-complete feature in web browsers such as Google Chrome can be a very convenient time-saving feature, as it enables you to fill out forms with data that you previously entered in the browser. So, instead of filling out your address, phone number, name or email address manually, you simply type the first character, pick the appropriate result from the list and have it auto-filled for you.

In 2012, Google implemented Autocomplete Types in the company's own Chrome browser designed to improve the handling of forms in the web browser. The basic idea behind the feature was to provide users with means to auto-fill all fields of a form automatically by selecting one of the available auto-complete data sets they have used earlier in the browser.

This meant that users did not have to use auto-complete for each field individually, but could select an auto-complete set to fill out multiple forms at once.

That's in theory a pretty nice feature as it enables you to fill out forms quicker and make the whole process more convenient.

One major issue with the feature came to light recently. If you are a web developer you probably know that you can use hidden form fields on websites. A form on a website asking for your name could use hidden form fields to retrieve additional information thanks to the autocomplete-type feature.

Instead of just submitting your name to the service, you may also submit your email address, street address, and even credit card information.

OK - here's the scenerio: Eight-year old PC with Windows XP is going down soon, I'm afraid. So, replacement has been ordered - with Windows XP (at user's request - they did not want to deal with Vista). So, I will be assisting in getting files transferred from old pc to new pc. (Outlook Express folders, Favorites, My Documents, My Pictures, etc.

I have already backed up EVERYTHING on an external hard drive, using Acronis True Image Version 9.0, just in case the old pc "died". It hasn't died yet, so I can move items DIRECTLY from the old pc to the new pc, (Or I have them on external drive for movement to new pc). I know PROGRAMS can't be transferred, but I have a Belarc Advisor print out on the old computer, which can be used as a check list, and have many of the programs in zip files under a folder named Downloaded Programs. I thought I could use the BA list to make sure I pick up all the programs and think I can use the zip files to install on the new pc?

Could anyone give me some tips which might make this easier ? What is a good way to go about this to make sure everything is included? I am hoping to make it a smooth transfer, so any advice you might have and share will be appreciated. Thanks.

I have found some info. Xp has a Files and Settings Transfer Wizard which is located at (Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Files and Settings Transfer Wizard). If I use it on the old pc and send the files and settings to my external hd, then use it again and bring those items to my new pc, is there a problem using a USB Cable from the external drive to the pc's? I know when you go pc to pc, you need a special cable. If you try it with USB cable, you may blow your USB ports. I guess I just know enough to really screw it up - lol.

I'm looking for information on the bottlenecks of data transfer. For example, I'd like to find some kind of chart or table or something that shows different Seek Speeds, Rotational Speeds, Interface, Buffer, etc. and what the potential problems problems are when transferring video, images, etc.

All this is coming from a need to purchase a particular external hard drive so I'm trying ramp up my knowledge base again. I've heard that there are some nice charts like that out there but I can't find any.

Can anyone point me to a link or something?

Answer:Information on Data Transfer Issues

Those things aren't really relevant with todays drives... consider 5400 rpm vs 7200 rpm vs 10,000 rpm... then get the largest cache buffer you can find.
They usually come in 2 mb, 4 mb, 8 mb, and 16 mb buffers.
You will find some charts on the websites of Seagate, Maxtor, Western Digital, and Samsung.
I recommend you stay away from Hitachi, Tri-Gem, Fujitsu, and Maxtor due to reliability features, and their high failure rates from relatively small lateral impact on an external drive. In fact, i would get only a Seagate or Western Digital with a 16 MB buffer.

I am running Windows XP Home Ed and I have a new 160 G hard drive (westin digital). I want to make it a slave drive as well as move my information to the new drive. First I need to know how use the drive once I put it in as the slave drive. How do I get the OS to detect it so I can use it?

Then, what is the best way to transfer my info to the new drive and be able to use the rest of the drive's extra space?

Can anyone help with this task?
 

Answer:Transfer information from master to slave drive

The old drive should be detected as soon as it is connected and the computer turned on.

One way to transfer the files is to go to My Computer. Click on the drive letter you want to transfer files from. It should open in a window. Size that window down to about one-quarter the size of your screen and drag that window to the upper right of your screen.

Go to My Computer. Click on the drive letter you want to transfer files to. It should open in a window. Size that window down to about one-quarter the size of your screen and drag that window to the lower right of your screen.

Make a folder in the bottom window named OldFiles.

Find the files in the top window that you want to copy. Drag them from the top window to the OldFiles folder in the bottom window.

I am attempting to reconfigure my Win 7 PC so that it automatically updates my drivers through the use of the Device Installation Settings feature. Though, when I go to Device and Printers and RIGHT click on a device I do not get all the options that include Device Installation Settings.

As seen on this Microsoft tech support page - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2500967
Does anyone know why I'm not getting the right click option and access this feature?
 

Answer:Not seeing Device Installation Settings feature in Win 7

Are you RIGHT-clicking on the icon for your computer, per the article?

I just tried it in Windows 8.1 and had no problems.

By default, it is set up to install the drivers.

Hello All,

I am getting an error message from (I assume) InstallShield whenever I try to install or uninstall anything that uses InstallShield. The installation error is "An installation support file could not be installed. Interface not registered." When I try to uninstall (iTunes, in this case), I get the message "String PRODUCT_NAME was not found in string table".

I am running Windows XP Home with all updates.

Here is what I have done so far:

I have renamed the existing InstallShield folder and tried to re-install InstallShield - but I can't, because I get the same error (ironic, isn't it?)

I have manually registered ctor.dll per instructions on the InstallShield Consumer Support web site. It registered successfuly.

I have run a complete virus scan.

I have also checked a registry value, which unfortunately I can't recall right now, per another internet site, but it was set as recommended.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Is it possible to have an outdated version of it? I'm trying to install the sound card drivers I downloaded but can't because i get an error during it saying something about uninstall9x.dll. Any help would make me not regret spending 100 dollars!!
 

Answer:installshield error

Yes it is possible to have an oudated version of windows installer. What operating system are you using? Usually an older version would be on 9x,Me machines. I have encountered a few erros due to old versions of windows installer. Right-Click the msi.dll file in your system32 directory, and check the version. I think the newest version is 2.0.x. If your version is older than 2.0 try this link. Hope this helps.

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.
Thanks in advance for any help, or advice guys.

Hi Mandika, welcome to BC.
Are you the only user (admin) of this computer?
Go back in to your services and make sure "DCOM Server Process" is set to Automatic and running.
The "Windows Installer Service" does not need to be set to Automatic in XP Pro SP2, manual is fine.

Hey,

My gf has an Acer laptop running Vista. She has recently run into an issue where she cannot install anything whether it's a Windows update, Quickbooks or anything else (Windows or third party). 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.".

It's my understanding that every program has an installer of some sort, so why would this error come up and not allow her to install anything? I go through Prog Files/Common Files/InstallShield, but none of the apps install InstallShield. I've even gone to the website to dl the latest/greatest version of InstallShield, but of course, it errors out and will not install.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

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 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 PC!

I've got a really annoying problem that I hope you can fix.

Whenever I want to install some new software the installshield starts and you can see the box saying that it is loading. Then however it just closes, no error messages or anything. It happens everytime I want to install some new software using the installshield.

If I go to event viewer there are 1001 and 1004 errors saying the source is MsiInstaller.

If I open the 1001 errors it says:

Detection of product '{90170409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9}', feature 'HandWritingFiles' failed during request for component '{B05C6A77-8180-42FF-9C3A-ACC8C548F026}'

If I open the 1004 errors it says:

Detection of product '{90170409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9}', feature 'ProductFiles', component '{66CD2C91-2A15-4DA4-BBD2-5EC1075F3C0E}' failed. The resource 'HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.pip\' does not exist.

I dont know what is causing the problems but I know it is something to do with either the installshield or the msi installer. Can someone please help and come up with a solution to this problem.

Thanks in advance.

I keep getting an error when trying to install some programs, although the programs are different, the error code is always the same, i've attached a screenshot of the error with details expanded. the line that is missing is also the first part of the error message, so its all there. I've formatted to try and get rid of it, a quick format to NTFS or FAT doesn't help at all. a full format did fix it for a while the first time, but since then even after a full format it comes back after a little while, sometimes a day, sometimes a few minutes.

I've tried different CD's of windows, one without SP2 integrated as well. each time it has stil happened and as far as i can tell, it isn't a problem one program is giving me, it can happen after I install anything, not just one specific program.

i've run out of ideas, can anyone help me?

I am getting that very annoying error from installshield whenever I uninstall any piece of software/game.

Error code -6001
It says

Setup has experienced an error.

Please do the follow:
- Close Any Running Programs
- Empty your temp folder
- Check your internet connection

Then try ro run the setup again.
I did what it says there, still showed error. I looked around the web. I renamed the folder. Deleted the folder. Replaced the folder.

When I replaced with working files. It still say this error as if the files were currupted.
When I deleted it or renamed it. Anything I tried to do it would just say "Could not find file in blah directory" blah being the 'runtime' folder.

Any Ideas what I could do? - I am on windows XP professional SP2, Genuine Edition.
If anyone is on XP Pro, the files i replaced where from Home edition and IDK if there is anything different.

If anyone can pm me a file with your runtime files and maybe that will help. Not sure.

Answer:Installshield error. Cannot install!

Your registry cleaning tools may have caused this issue to appear:Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:? Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.? Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry".

A previous installation had failed.

Installshield stores information in C:\Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Professional\RunTime\10.

The 10 is the version of installshield used by the program somay be different.

I renamed the 10 folder.

I have windows xp professional and for reasons i can't explain, my installer isn't working. I cannot install any program and each time i try, i receive error 1607.

I have performed all of these actions:
Enabled full control on all desktops (I am the admin of this computer also)
renaming the installer folder
running disk clean
enabling full control on the temp folder
deleting my temp files

I can't download the installer either because when i do, it requests that i INSTALL it. and installshield isn't working. so i don't know how to fix this issue. It should also be noted that in the registry, i can't find the installer folder undder the software folder, however it is still in my common files folder under program files.

I can't install FEAR Combat on my new PC. I have almost 80GB remaining on my WD Raptor 150GB drive (NTFS, of course), but every time I try to install, I get past the point where I select the folder, and Installshield tells me,
"Not enough free space on this drive, please select different options/free up some space, etc"

I am running Vista x64 which this game should work on. And I have tried with UAC on or off, and running as administrator. And I have even tried installing FEAR Combat on my storage drive that as 450GB free. Nothing will get past this Installshield bug.

Any suggestions?
 

Answer:Annoying InstallShield Error

I read your post and got curious. FEAR is installing fine on my Vista x64 system.

The installshield help pages have some suggestions. A couple that I noticed had to do with the amount of space on your current OS partition (it doesn't matter if you have a lot of space on another partition, temp files are stored where TEMP points), if the TEMP environment variable is set and whether the temp folder or files were read-only.

Installshield is just a tragedy in general. If it becomes corrupted you need to jump through several hoops to clean it up, and even then it might not work.

I'm having trouble installing an appln (MPIO mp3 Manager2), and after a lot of investigation I think there's a problem with Installshield (Engine 6) on my PC.

I have come to this conclusion because the appln installation problem generates the same symptoms and error as the problem with Installshield; namely -

When I try to update the Installshield kernal engine from the zip file downloaded from the Installshield web site I get the error;
An installation support file C:\Prog...File\ Common Files\Installshield\engine\Intel 32\iuser.dll
Cannot create a file when that file already exists.

This is virtually the same error that I'm getting with Manager2 when it's installation aborts, so I'm thinking the Installshield is the underlying problem - although Manager2 is the only appln that I seem to be having an installation problem with.

I've tried deleting the Installshield engine folder (as recommended by the Installshield web site) and cleaning out the Window's Temp folder - but nothing helps.

I'm wondering if there is some rogue entry in the registery that is causing this problem.

Any suggestions to help fix this problem would be greatly appreciated.

FYI - I'm running Win XP SP2 on a P4 3200Mhz, 1 Gig RAM, Asus m/b.

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!

Answer:The Install Wizard Will Complete The Suspended Installation Of A Feature

<<The highlighted volumes do not have enough disk space available for the currently selected features. You can remove files from the highlighted volumes, choose to install less features onto local drives, or select different destination drives.>>

I suspect that this is the reason for the failed install, insufficient space on the hard drive.

I also suspect that the install will proceed normally if you move sufficient files from the hard drive to another partition, DVD, whatever.

So the first thing I would suggest is disk cleanup, emptying the Recycle Bin, removal of all unnecessary data files, and moving all video, graphics, text, and word files to another location.

How many partitions or hard drives do you have and how much free space is on each?

I've never had a failed install (other than RC2 of XP SP3) which did not immediately spell out what the problem might be.
