Before version 7.2/10.2 installation error

In versions earlier than 7.2 / 10.2 the installer may return an “internal error 2908” message and not allow the installation to continue. The solution to this is to delete a key in the Windows Registry:

  • Back up the registry
  • Find the following key and delete it:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ Installer\UserData\S-1-5-21-1123561945-1935655697-1060284298-1003\ Components\AD95649F068525549B26938D7D18FEA7
