No longer install on Win 2K Server

By Patrick Horn ·
I have a Win 2K server that I cannot install CAD software on. When I try, a window just pops up that says the program has encountered a fatal error. In the event log it just says: AutoCAD 2005 installation operation failed. The event properties window says the source is MsiInstaller. Error# 11708. What is happening? Is this repairable?

Several potential fixes, such as:

Make sure that the SYSTEM account has access to the installation folder and files.

Check that Everyone has full rights on the folder where the ?*.msi? is executed.

Improper permissions to component Services (Windows XP). Go to start run and type in "dcomcnfg" expand Component Services > Computer and go to properties on "My Computer" and modify permissions on "default COM Security" as needed.

I'd also check the vendor's technical support site's knowledgebase.

might recheck the answer file or that the account used when you created the answer file for for autorun installation on the package was an account that has appropriate permissions [like admin account].

one question: does the error message indicate that the installer could not find a .CAB [cabnet] file?

The most common problem I've had when installing autocad is that the person doing the installing (and using the program) must be in the administrators group on the computer. Power users won't work.

The other problem was the CD itself. Try to install it on another computer
