Roland, what product are you trying to install? What steps are you taking to install it? Are you deploying it on a network?

SmartPlant with the version 4. I want to create a netinstall package to distribute SmartPlant software. I've added the msi part with the MSIInstallProduct command. Do you need further information?

Is it a Native MSI installer or are you repackaging it? If it is MSI based, then have you tried creating a Transform file to customize the installation to suite your needs? Also, do your systems meet all the requirements for the program?

From looking at the log it looks like the Installer service failed to start. Or maybe it was the Installshield service which didnt get registered correctly during installation startup.

Run the setup as a local admin and see if that helps.

I know this is late... but better late than never!

This is a common DCOM problem with Installshield MSI files. he relevant lines are these:

1: GetInstallDriver, Can not find InstallDriver in ROT table, Return Code = 0x800401e3
1: {AC5B787D-3B5F-40A5-8188-D088BC229DCB}
1: ISMsiServerStartup Failure, Failed to create InstallDriver, Error = 0x8000401a
Action ended 15:10:11: ISMsiServerStartup. Return value 1603.

Changing the DCOM launch credentials should fix the problem...

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID\{E4A51076-BCD3-11D4-AB7D-00B0D02332EB}]
"RunAs"=-

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID\{99BDE2B6-D79E-11D4-AB87-00B0D02332EB}]
"RunAs"=-

I have even modified a copy of "Isscript.msi" so it does this anyway.
