TDM 3 Installation error on Vista


#1

Hello,

I tried to install TDM version 3.3.8.11. I ran ToadDataModeler_33811.msi, got first Welcome screen and pushed button Next. Unfortunately error message was displayed and installation finished. The message was “Installation ended prematurely because of an error.”.

How can I install TDM? Attached installation log file.

Hello,

thanks for the links but it is not the solution. But it helped me to realize where is real problem. It is in your installation package. I have Vista with UAC switched on. And your installation package is not Vista compatible because it must run with Administrator privileges but does not ask for them. If I run your installation as Administrator it works. Now I have successfully installed TDM.

Thanks,

Luděk

Hello,

Happy to hear it works fine now. Thanks for letting us know.

For installation of some applications, admin privileges are necessary. TDM is one of such applications.

Anyway, I will add this information to the Install Guide.

Thanks.
