Problem Installing in Vista Home Premium

Posted by Admin on 11-Sep-2008 04:16

After completed and apparently successful installation of 10.2ABeta:

(1) Running Appbuilder, dataDictionary, etc will give message "msgOpen: unable to open message file: PROMSGS"

(2) Running architect will result in error: "Not licensed to run OpenEdge Architect for version: 10.2A."

Registry entry for HKEY_CURRENT_USER - Software - PSC - Progress has two entries 10.2A1B and 10.2A1B-- (see attached)

This happened when an OpenEdge 10.1B was installed in the same machine and when this was completely removed from the machine.

To manually correct problem #1:

a) I took note of the entries / values in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER - Software - PSC - Progress - 10.2A1B"

b) I deleted the entry "HKEY_CURRENT_USER - Software - PSC - Progress - 10.2A1B"

c) I renamed "HKEY_CURRENT_USER - Software - PSC - Progress - 10.2A1B--" - to 10.2A1B

d) I placed the values I noted in a) in the 10.2A1B entry.

This corrected problem #1 but not #2.

Home editions of Vista have not been officially supported by PSC in 10.1C. But I have no clue if that's an issue or not.

I'd log it with tech support as an issue. Maybe together with the info of the OS language used (when it's not English).

I also experienced the same problems with Vista Ultimate.

Problem #1 happened to me on both 10.2A1B and 10.2A1P.

Problem #2 only happened to me with 10.2A1B.

One difference between installs on 10.2A1B and 10.2A1P: On 10.2A1P, I made the registry fixes before launching OE Architect. I wonder if this could somehow be related to problem #2 not appearing with 10.2A1P... but I'm not going to test, because I finally have it working!

I also had to uninstall 10.2A1B after getting the updated proshell.dll that Ken posted:

Beta drop 2 installed and uninstalled without a problem on 2008 server

Export 10.2A1B from the registry.

Using a text editor open the .reg file.

After every use of 10.2A1B you should see an extra character.

remove it.

reload the registry.

This happens with all Vista installs, regardless of version.

I don;t know; It started with 10.1C as far as I can tell.
