I’m a mentor who is trying to get the programming environment up and running for my team (1111) and we are having a few issues. I have a few laptops at my disposal for team usage and I’m trying to install WindRiver.
I’m using “DVD 2 of 2” that indicates it runs on both Windows XP and Vista. I’m told the team has the ‘other DVD’ but I haven’t seen it.
My failed attempts are on Vista (Home Basic) at this time - so if you tell me that things are working for you on Windows XP, I’ll try that as well.
- Computer running Vista Home Basic, has Internet access, patched
- I shove in the DVD, go to d:\distributions\windriver
- Read the ‘readme.txt’ and ‘license.htm’ - nothing exciting
- Ran setup.exe (Run as administrator)
a variety of steps later, I choose a standard install and the only choice is “PowerPC”.
shows a list of 8 programs it needs to install and boom, on the first one it give a “Red Ball - X” and the message:
The installer engine was terminated by an unknown error. This can occur if multiple installs were run in parallel, a user sends a kill signal, or there is an operating system problem. A system reboot will usually solve the problem. Afterwards restart the installer to install your products. <OK>
Anyone having similar issues?
Anyone have a great experience where it installed just fine?
