Clipboard Help and Spell
« on: June 11, 2010, 05:31:04 AM »
I'm getting a random error message when I try to install the Clip Board, is says Temporary Internet Folder is not allowed with Win32... I have installed this on another PC with no problems and can't see where I'm going wrong, any advise? - Jen

Strange!
Could you paste the exact text of the error message or a screenshot?

To confirm -- the error occurs at installation time, right? before the program is even finished installing on your computer?

All of my programs use Inno Setup as their installation engine, so it sounds like a problem with that -- but not one i've ever heard of before.

You might try just rebooting, in case some process is preventing the installer from working.

Another option is -- all of my installation setup .exe files are actually zip-compatible self-extracting packages, which means you can actually rename the ClipboardHelpAndSpellSetup.exe to  ClipboardHelpAndSpellSetup.zip and unzip the contents manually and put the program wherever you want it (in your documents directory for example) and run it from there, if your computer setup won't allow it to be formally "installed" for some reason.

I'd expect it an issue with the AV, most users just use the Run option when downloading, and the way the self-extracting zip is handled is probably not to the liking of that AV package.
Your suggestion of putting it in another location is most likely going to fix it.

'Real' troubles concerning false positives with Inno Setup installers are usually solved within hours or days after a report to the AV vendor, when they push their next update...

I have tried rebooting and moving the tempory folder to my Documents and Settings in my C drive. Still no joy.

The Errror message reads > C:Documents and Settings\user.name\ClipboardHelpAndSpellSetup.exe is not a valid Win32 application.

I'm now going to try renaming it.

ah wait wait..
that error is a very different error that i know all too well :)

that error means that the setup file did not fully download.

re-download it and try again (note that you may have to use a different browser to trick your browser into re-downloading the file and not grabbing the copy from the cache).

i have yet to figure out why this happens to some people.
