Hi guys!

I am trying to install the latest version of VisiLogic, but it is not possible in my Windows 10 x64 (PRO) laptop.

Trying in a VM with Windows 7 works fine...

Any idea?

Hi;

Been there , done that.   This is a Windows related issue.

There is an install shield file that has information in it causing the problem, and has to be  moved or deleted.

Here is a solution:

CAUTION :  I Take NO Responsibility for anything that happens ( good or bad)!!!!!

                           Local Administrator privileges may be necessary.

                           KNOW what you are doing!

Open        C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield Installation Information

There are a few or many very oddly named folders  e.g.  {12AB95C7-C72D-4CF5-9B6D-7452DF048C56}

Starting at the top, click on the folder to open it:

             Each  folder has a group of files.

             Look for the file :   Setup.ini

                    Double click to open the file or open the file in Notepad  ( Notepad ONLY, this is a simple Text File)

                     Top Line               [Startup]

                     2nd line               AppName= If the App name is NOT   VisiLogic, close Notepad ( DO NOT do a Save  or Save As)

                                                      Move on the next folder

                                                      If the Appname=   is VisiLogic,   Close Notepad

                                                       Back out of that folder,

                                                       Cut the Folder and Paste  it into the Downloads Folder  -- Just a safe place to put it for now.

                                                       Also   Rename the Folder  and   ADD       - VisiLogic

                 Restart the VisiLogic Installation, and ( fingers crossed ) it should go smoothly.

 

You can also run a registry cleanup program later to locate and delete unused registry entries.

Hi Aus;

     Too Many times,  and a bit of research,  registry editing(hacking),  and help from other sources.

     There is a registry entry that has to be removed/bypassed , but this is a safer way.

I know it's a bit late now, but a thing to remember for the future is the use of Revo Uninstaller.  It often solves incomplete uninstall problems.  I always use the portable type, free/$ versions available here:
