ConceptDraw VI Standard on Giveawayoftheday today
« on: May 11, 2007, 08:26:04 AM »
ConceptDrawVI Standard is today's (May 11) Giveaway of the Day.

From the publisher's website:

Quote
ConceptDraw VI software is intended for professional flowcharting, diagramming and illustrating. Its flexible, handy tools help quickly document a variety of complex structures, systems and processes.

ConceptDraw VI charts can be shared as a large array of graphic files and CAD documents, presentations and web pages.

ConceptDraw VI is a Windows and Macintosh cross-platform application. All documents and libraries are 100% compatible. Thanks to its advanced libraries of pre-drawn shapes ConceptDraw VI provides the best assistance for most charting tasks and can be broadly applied within a small office or a larger enterprise.

In many cases a single picture speaks better than a thousand words. To document and explain complicated data, system or process, clear flowcharts or diagrams is one of the best ways to present them. Requiring little skills and efforts to create high-quality professional graphics ConceptDraw VI will become your efficient assistant.

Great! I have 4 & 5 and look forward to see the changes to 6! It´s a great Visio-clone. On the HP I found 2 additional diagram-libraries to download.

Does anyone else get this error when they try to install it?

Error Code:   -5004 : 0x80070005
Error Information:
>SetupDLL\SetupDLL.cpp (3093)
PAPP:ConceptDraw VI Standard

I did run the Activate.exe first and it said it was okay.

Thanks!

Yes - no problems on my end (same setup as Carol - WinXP Sp-2, fully patched), either.

I get the error when the wizard comes up saying "Preparing Setup" before I can click on anything.

Here's the full error:

Error Code:   -5004 : 0x80070005
Error Information:
>SetupDLL\SetupDLL.cpp (3093)
PAPP:ConceptDraw VI Standard
PVENDOR:Computer Systems Odessa corp. (www.conceptdraw.com)
PGUID:63910E59-C5D4-4596-A8D0-B9E3F26A3CD0
$11.50.0.42618PAK
@Windows XP Service Pack 2 (2600) IE 7.0.6000.16441

I clicked on "Report" and it took me to a Installshield web page to submit the bug.

It's too bad, because I really was looking for this sort of tool!  :-\

I don't know why this should happen ... two suggestions you could try;

1) Make sure you have admin rights on you login account and exit all open applications (including those in the system tray) and try again

If that doesn't work try:

2) START > RUN > MSCONFIG go to the Startup tab click "Disable all", then under the "Services" tab check the 'Hide all Microsoft services' tab  and then click "Disable all". Close the window and restart when prompted. Try the install again after it restarts. To restore your normal working setup open the MSCONFIG window (it should already be onscreen) and under the "General" tab select "Normal Startup" and then OK - restart when prompted.

Process 2 above is a good way to make sure no other software interferes with software installation.

thefritz_j, since there is still time (13 hours by my clock), why don't you post at GAOTD's forums? at least the moderators will be aware of the problem and may able to find out the cause.. :)

Does it help anyone to know that my system drive is the letter "G:\"?  I have a startup cmd that uses SUBST C: for G: and that works fine.  Anyone heard of non-default letters for drives causing problems?

Thanks

I have had odd issues with non-standard drive letters before now - but can't test this particular package as my system currently uses drive C: for Windows and I currently don't have multiboot partitions set up.
