Errors when installing Candy using setup.exe

# Introduction

Sometimes setup.exe can fail on a particular workstation. This can happen for many reasons. There are two possible points of failure:

1.       The interface including extended services that the install program provides

2.       The actual exe itself.

# Solution

To find out if the exe is not corrupted try the following

1.       Copy setup.exe to a folder called c:\TEST

2.       RUN

3.       Type the following c:\test\setup.exe version

4.       If you get no error message then the setup.exe file is probably okay.

5.       Next try a manual install: Do this by using RUN to execute  c:\test\setup.exe c:\program files\ccswin\setup.exe

If this has failed then try the following: To manually install Candy you can install it onto a memory stick. Do this on a machine that you know that Candy setup.exe has worked in the past – use the memory stick path as the install path ie e:\ccswin. You can now copy the entire folder into the c:\program files\ on the Cdrive.
