OK - I see that now. I removed the "Solution" flag.

Hi @bshand

 

 

 

but this for me more or less indicates a problem with the ST8 image.

 

File cab...dll could not be found in custom.cab

 

 

Do You have a ST8 DVD or an downloaded image

Maybe YOu try a new download.

 

PS.: I always rename the STx_DVD.exe to STx-DVD.zip and do an unzip using 7zip.

So I have the unpacked DVD available on server for multiple installation without repeating the unzip procedere.

 

Maybe this will help You too.

 

 

regards
Wolfgang

Yeah, our DVDs are put on the server as well. I might try loading the physical DVD on that machine as a last, probably futile, step.

No luck with the DVD either. Guess I'm stuck with what the GTAC tech said: rebuild.

I think we need a disposition of "Solved" but with the exclamation mark replaced with a frowny face.

This is not a good solution.

You have two different error messages in this thread.  Which one are you now getting and what are you doing to get it?

The first one is from uninstall attempts. The second is from repair attempts.

Okay so for the uninstall attempt try these steps that previously resolved the same error message for an ST2 uninstall...

 

  • unregister and reregister the Windows Installer service helps to fix the ERROR.
  • follow these steps:
  • Log on to the computer as local administrator.
  • Open a CMD shell - click Start, click Run, type cmd.exe, and then click OK.
  • At the command prompt, type msiexec /unregister , and then press ENTER.
  • At the command prompt, type msiexec /regserver, and then press ENTER.
  • At the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER to close the command
    prompt.
  • go to control panel >> Add or Remove Programs >> select ST2 from list and
    remove(uninstall).
  • Add or Remove Programs should uninstall the program now.
