Installshield 11.5

I am packaging a screensaver application which needs Flash as a pre-req or at least in order to function.

When I install Flash prior to the package I get the following error coming up a few times

Error 1406: Could not write to Key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\CLSID\{<GUID>}\In ProcServer32.Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or contact support personnel.

If I ignore the error's and continue with the installation it installs and functions as expected.

However if I install the ScreenSaver application first it installs no problem and functions after Flash is installed. Problem is Flash is on the core build[:(]

I am installing as an Admin so this is not the problem.

I have tried removing the references from the TypeLib table and also importing the reg keys after installing the sources but this is not helping. I have had a look on SDK etc at this error and tried the suggested solutions with no luck (not very helpful). Anyone any idea's?

Hi Oreillyr,
can you tell the flash installer's name and the core OS where do you make this install?
Has it any Framework .net?

The Flash player is Adobe Flash Player 9.0.16 using the MSI named:

install_flash_player_active_x.msi

The OS is XP pro and this no .net Framework with the application. Thanks for your help

Hi again,
I've only found the version 9.0.28...
It installs ok, with no error, on a clean XP no SP2 and no .net Framework...
do you have to deploy it with the screensaver or it is already installed?
Maybe you should think about use this latest version if is not yet installed...
Otherwise, there may be any application uninstalled recently that has revoked some permissions on the registry...

There is definitely some conflict between the two mentioned applications,ScreenSaver and Flash but what it is I have no clue! I have done this install on a clean XP(vanilla with SP2)build and it still occurs. I have a work around anyway(installing ScreenSaver first) but will come back to this issue when I have more time. Thanks for your efforts Kris

Hi oreillyr,
please read this:
http://www.kwikmcad.com/iclips/documents/Installation_Error_1406_Autodesk_Inventor.pdf
http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?id=4da116d3

After that, i would consider to include the Flash MSM (Merge Module) into your application. You can get it here:
http://download.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/win/flashplayermergemodule.msm
Use a file search against flash.ocx (incl. version) to determine the need for installation/upgrade.
Hope this give you some ideas.
Regards, Nick
