Tried to do a clean install of BK 6.4 This PM. I have the downloaded install *.exe file on the desktop, User, Administrator.
In the last Start window in the BK installer I click "Next", within a few seconds file copying "stalls" and I get this error window saying, ““C:\windows\system32\mfc42.dll” could not be opened. Please check. . .disk capacity. . .access to destination directory”.
So, yes I can access the \BK\ folder with WN Explorer. And I have 40 per cent of my SSD OS partition free.
I think the error window tells me the installer was unable to copy the file Mfc42.dll.
My OS, WN 7 Pro 64 is in C:\Windows.
I did run the installer from User:Administrator. I also did try this: RIGHT click BKSETUP6.EXE and pick Run as Administrator?
I still needed to install other software. Those installs went A-OK.
I deleted the original BK download and grabbed a fresh download of bksetup6.exe. The file sizes matched so I do not think I inadvertently corrupted my first download from bkwin.org.
I shut down all programs and turned off Norton's software. I then shut down, disconnected my network cable and rebooted my WN 7 PC without any network or Internet connection.
I tried the install again accepting all defaults and I get the same error result.
After the install "crashes" I find this file in the default destination directory for the BK program files; (unwise.exe, 148kb, mod date 25 Jun 1999). So, I think the "wise script" installer is reading the correct path as to where to copy the uninstaller.
Now looking at that file mfc42.dll. I see attributes read only box is blank, size is 1.32mb, created is 7/13/09 5:35PM, mod is 7/13/09 6:41 PM.
OBTW This geneology software installs A-OK on my WN XP Pro SP3 PC.
Thanx in advance,
